San Diego, California – February 9, 2016 – DiMora Motorcar founder, Sir Alfred J. DiMora has recently teamed up with Cruise 4 Kids, a 501(c)3 charity based out of San Diego, California. Cruise 4 Kids’ mission is to raise money through charity events that support and fund other youth organizations on not only a local level, but state, federal and global level as well.
“When I first heard about Cruise 4 Kids, I knew it was something that I wanted to be part of,” said DiMora. “I am ecstatic to be on the board of directors for such a great organization.”
Cruise 4 Kids started as a sports and exotic car rally fundraiser in 2011 by founder, Nino Venturella. Building off of the success of the rally, he created black tie charity events called The Teddy Ball and The Bunny Ball.
“We are all about helping today’s youth and using our resources to raise awareness and money to help charities,” said Venturella. “It’s wonderful to have Sir Alfred on our board of directors and we are confident that his position in the automotive world will be an asset to our organization.”
The annual Bunny Ball is a black tie charity event held in the spring. The mission behind the Bunny Ball is to collect new stuffed animal bunnies to donate to sick and needy children. Similarly, the annual Teddy Ball is held during Thanksgiving weekend yearly and collects new stuffed teddy bears that are donated to comfort children in need.
“There have been many charities I've helped in the past, but helping sick and needy kids is dear to my heart, so when Nino approached me to volunteer on his board, I was very happy to help, especially when I found out that one-hundred percent of the proceeds go toward the kids. I hope my spheres of influence may help raise many more dollars to the cause,” stated DiMora. “Cruise 4 Kids has a fantastic track record of raising much needed money and awareness for others in need.”
The Cruise 4 Kids Sports & Exotic Car Rally invites high-end luxury car owners to participate in an intimate 40-mile car cruise through a predetermined area of San Diego and limited to 130 drivers. For those unable to drive in the rally, sponsorship packages are available to help raise money for youth charities.
Aside from his new position as a Cruise 4 Kids board of directors member, DiMora is also an entrepreneur and owner of DiMora Motorcar, having produced many limited edition luxury automobiles, and is currently producing the limited edition DiMora Vicci 6.2 convertible.
