Fight Night, our signature fundraiser, is just twelve weeks away. During these next twelve weeks, we will be showcasing partners in Fight Night that make it such a “knockout” event!

Round 1: Tito’s Vodka, our delicious vodka sponsor. Tito’s is quite special, produced in Austin at Texas, it is the first and oldest legal distillery. Their vodka is made in  small batches and is designed to be enjoyed by spirit connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike.

Tito’s Vodka is very philanthropic and believes in what The Marconi Foundation for Kids strives to do for the children and our community.

Tito’s became a sponsor of Fight Night last year and we are delighted to have them back for Fight Night 17. Please visit www.titosvodka.com to learn more.

And for more information on Fight Night 17 and to purchase tickets, go to http://www.marconimuseum.org/foundation-events/fight-night/

Stay tuned next week, as we continue our twelve rounds of Fight Night countdown.

Priscilla Marconi Bo Marconi Marconi Foundation Kids Joy Jars Children Cancer Donate Holidays Give Back Orange County Charity Social Good

Dearest Marconi Foundation Supporter,

Today I was able to spend several hours at Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), being a part of Jessie’s.org and their Joy Jar delivery. What a unique and very special time it was for me to take in and experience the faces of these dear and tragically ill children and their equally distraught parents.

Due to the loss of their own child, Erik & Stacey Rees formed the Jessie Rees Foundation and thus the Joy Jars were born. In such a short amount of time, this wonderful group has populated many a hospital, all around the world, and thousands of children, with a Joy Jar to make their day, their holiday, their time in the hospital, just a little bit more pleasant.

As perplexing as the holiday season can be, today’s experience gave me yet another dose of reality as to the plight of children in our beloved Orange County and beyond. The need is great and in order for us to do our job, we need you! And we are so thankful for you!

If you are so inclined, we would appreciate your help today, by considering a year end gift to the Marconi Foundation for Kids, so that we can continue to help strengthen organizations like Jessie’s foundation.

As we give gifts to our family and friends, let’s consider thinking outside of our normal boundaries and help these children who are in such need.

We wish you the very best this holiday season.

All the best,
Priscilla “Bo” Marconi

Our founder, Dick Marconi, and his grandson, Vincent, will be driving the museum’s 1973 Ferrari Daytona through an arrival parade, led by Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo, with a total of 100 spectacular Ferraris.

On top of that, there will be a public display of 60 of the most storied and spectacular Ferraris ever assembled, plus the world premiere of a new Ferrari vehicle!

A little bit of “Hollywood” will be at the event as well with the Ferrari 308 GTS from Magnum P.I., the Testarossa from Miami Vice, and Steve McQueen’s 275 GTB/4, which was delivered to the actor on the set of the movie Bullitt.

Ferrari 60: Race Through The Decades, is this Sunday, October 12th, and takes place from 10 am to 5 pm on Rodeo between Wilshire and Santa Monica. Admission is free and we look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday.

A new season of giving back at The Marconi Automotive Museum. We pride ourselves on giving back & helping build brighter futures for less fortunate children.

At The Marconi Automotive Museum, we pride ourselves on giving back and helping to build brighter futures for children who are less fortunate. Through net proceeds, from your wonderful help, we have given to many local children’s charities. But we would like to do more, and with September just about here, and the holidays a mere couple of months away, we are putting our pedal to the metal and launching two annual holiday drives.

This year, with our annual Food Drive, we have partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Through this partnership, we are asking for non-perishable canned and pre-packaged food. These donations will help alleviate hunger for families in need throughout our community. Please drop off your canned and pre-packed food to the museum office Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm. Together let’s help make a difference to these families, and hopefully make their lives just a little bit brighter.

Our Toy Drive officially begins on November 26, but why not start now?! Giving back and helping others is about being proactive. Starting sooner creates more smiles and brightens more children’s lives. We are asking for toys that are new and unwrapped, for all age groups of kids. Please drop off toys to the museum office Monday through Friday from 9am to 4pm. We will hand deliver the toys, now and through Christmas, to local children’s charities.

If you are unable to bring food or a toy, that’s ok, you can always help our foundation by visiting our donation page and make a financial contribution. Thank you again for all your support and making the Marconi Foundation what it is today.

Dick & Bo Briefing

Our 20th Anniversary Open House was more than we even hoped for. Thanks to all who joined us. It was a wonderful day of celebrating 20 years in business and wow, what a turn out of people and fabulous cars! Legendary car designer, Chip Foose came, as did the founder of Meguiars, Barry Meguiar, and of course our very own Dick Marconi, who managed to get around to greet you all, despite his recent knee replacement.

We all are truly thankful for all of your ongoing support. And for those of you who don’t know too much about what we do, our sole purpose, really, is to help raise money and awareness for the plight of homeless and at-risk kids in our community. Although Orange County is a well-heeled area, there are an alarming number of families who live below the poverty line.

So once again, “Thank You for Helping Us Help Kids!” Together, we are making a difference!
