.:Coolwater Fall Cruise #5-10/17/2010 : Taking care of our own:.
Hi guys, so my club Coolwater is holding a charity cruise and i was hoping you guys could make it...... it's a good fun cruise that we've been doing for a a few years and this year it's to raise money for a good cause, please take some time to look this over.
Alright folks we're doing it all over again! The biggest, baddest fall cruise in the entire universe is back and for a very good cause.
For those that aren't familiar with this cruise it's 60-90 miles of twisty back roads through Sussex, Morris, and Warren counties with the occasional trip into NY or PA if we have to.
For the first three years this was just a cool way to wind down for the season and check out some parts of the state that maybe you didn't know existed but after seeing over 100 cars show up for a our third run we saw some potential to do more with the event so last year we turned it into a canned food drive and collected over 3500lbs of food for local food banks, over 150 cars showed up and the VW community came through big time.
We're keeping the charitable aspect of the event alive again this year but for a cause that hit's a little closer to home for Coolwater and I think that many of the people reading this thread will feel the same way.
Please Keep Reading
Matty and Steve Kerrick are brothers here in North Jersey, they are also dubbers and if you frequent PAR or the Mount Olive GTG you've probably met one or both of them, both are stand up guys and would go out of their way to help any one of us if we were in need.
Recently their father was diagnosed with lung cancer and needs to have surgery but like many people in the current economy doesn't have health insurance and as you can well imagine this is going to put a tremendous strain on the family financially.
After hearing about this news CW has decided to put the food drive on hold until next year and instead do what we can to take care of our own.
Hopefully after reading this post you're asking yourselves how can I help and while we don't have 100% of the details worked out this is what we have in place thus far.
1) Show up! - We are currently working with local dealers to pledge $1 per car for every VW/Audi that comes to the event.
2) Buy raffle tickets! - We have reached out to our sponsors and friends and are working on putting together nice set of prizes, and the more raffle tickets you buy the better chances you have of winning
3) Buy a T-shirt! - Just like last year we'll be selling event shirts with 100% of the profits going to the Kerrick family.
Raffle prizes and new sponsors are coming on board daily and I will keep a running list in this post as things change but again this is about helping one of our own so please tell your friends, just by showing up you're helping out!
Details about start times and locations will be posted shortly as well but I wanted to get the word out sooner rather than later so people can save the date.

this cruise has some unbelievable roads, but the cars arent that great...
if you want to go for a nice long (not fast) cruise and have free time do it, otherwise its sort of a waste
most of the roads are one lane roads, and you never really get to open up at all..
