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!


Greetings friends!

This Saturday is our 20th Open House. We are so very thankful for your generosity to the Marconi Foundation over the years and we hope that you will come by and visit with us from 10-2 on the 26th.

Dick is recovering from a total knee replacement so he may only be available for tours from 11-1. We will see how he feels. Also in attendance will be Barry Meguiar! We are thrilled and honored that he will be here with us. And word has it that Meguiar’s will have some product that we will give to some lucky people who come out for the Open House.

The staff of the Marconi Automotive Museum looks forward to welcoming you and celebrating 20 years in business!

And don’t miss our very miscellaneous “garage sale”. Lots of treasures, that we’ve been storing up, will be available for purchase.

See you Saturday.

And thanks for helping us help kids!

Celebrating 20 Years With An Open House In July!

Greetings Friends!

Many apologies from us to you regarding the lack of updates from the Marconi Automotive Museum. We had a few technical blog difficulties, but we are back up and running and excited about summer. Speaking of summer, we will be celebrating our 20th year of being a museum, and we are having an Open House on July 26th from 10:00 a 2:00. Please come join us.

Dick will be there to greet you. We are thrilled to say that he is on the mend from a very successful knee replacement surgery, so stop in and say hi to him.

Enjoy your summer, and know that you are always welcome at The Marconi Automotive Museum – Style and Class, with a Touch of Adrenaline.

All the best,
Bo Marconi
