Beer, BBQ and BMW's
Elite Motor Works hosted a fun event to bring the BMW and Mini Cooper community together while raising money for All Faiths Food Bank who provides healthy solutions to end child hunger in Sarasota and Desoto counties. 100% of money collected by Elite Motor Works went directly to All Faiths Food Bank. All vehicles entered received a free ticket towards our 50/50 raffle and were entered into a drawing for a chance to get Free Stainless Steel Brake lines by UUC Motorwerks and installed by Elite Motor Works LLC (for most BMW models). We had Free Beer supplied by the Big Top Brewing Company and a BBQ truck by Smokin Momma Lora's BBQ Mobile. The Elite Motor Work's shop was open for viewing. The Music Compound provided additional indoor space with music and entertainment. We had lots of raffle items and services from local businesses. Sage Eco Detailing provided pre-show auto detailing specials.
