Participants will be chauffeured on tour of four multi-million dollar properties and view luxury cars along the way, benefiting SOAR, Susan B. Anthony Project and VIM
Lakeville, Conn. (August 28, 2015) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that the company is partnering with Lime Rock Drivers Club, a Lakeville, Conn.-based exclusive members-only club catering to racing and driving enthusiasts with a passion for high end cars, to host a great estates and exotic cars tour to benefit three charities including SOAR, the Susan B. Anthony Project and VIM.
Participants will begin the tour at Lime Rock Park, home to one of the oldest road racing courses in the country. From there they will be chauffeured to four multi-million dollar estates featured on the tour in both the Litchfield Hills and Berkshire County. At each of the properties, guests will have the opportunity to view a selection of luxurious cars on display from Ferraris to Porsches while enjoying light refreshments. Following the tour will be a reception with food, wine and a silent auction.
Proceeds from the auction, as well as all funds raised from the $50 admission ticket, will go to SOAR, the Susan B. Anthony Project and VIM. SOAR, standing for “Seek, Originate, Aspire, Reach,” is an educational enrichment program for Salisbury, Conn.’s Central School, providing extra-curricular learning opportunities to students through after-school workshops exposing them to subjects such as music, art, fitness, math, engineering, cooking and science, all taught by local experts. The Susan B. Anthony Project offers crisis services and support to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault including counseling and a crisis hotline. VIM, or “Volunteers in Medicine,” is a group of dedicated health care professionals, who provide services for eligible, uninsured residents of the Berkshire region. The nonprofit organization offers general medical care, as well as dental, optometry, psychiatry, nutritional counseling and more.
The event will be held on the morning of Sunday, October 18, 2015, with admissions at both 10am and 11am, and the reception immediately following. Lime Rock president Skip Barber will be the honorary chairperson for the event.
“All three local charities offer services that are essential to our community. I am excited to offer our support to these important organizations,” said Matthew Day, brokerage manager for William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Litchfield Hills and Berkshires brokerages. “I am also looking forward to introducing the extraordinary homes and cars featured on the tour, each of them exceptional in their own right, to members of the community.”
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to view private luxury estates, see one of a kind collectible automobiles, and enjoy great food and friends, all while benefiting the community,” said Kristine Newell, assistant manager for the firm’s Litchfield County and Berkshires brokerages. “In short, it is a dream event with something for everyone. This is a rare experience, and we are thrilled to be sponsoring it.”
