Oglethorpe Driving Club Presents a Donation of Over 6.5K to Bethesda Academy

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAVANNAH, Ga. - Jul 19, 2017 - The Oglethorpe Driving Club (ODC) presented a $6,543.96 donation to Bethesda Academy. Collected during the ODC’s monthly “Coffee and Cars” meeting, this donation will be used to provide Bethesda Academy students with tuition scholarship money.

Though typically “Coffee and Cars” is held at the Habersham Shopping Center, it was relocated this month to be held on the campus of the organization it was supporting.

“We greatly appreciate all that the Oglethorpe Driving Club has done,” said Mike Hughes, president of Bethesda Academy. “It is such a blessing to be able to provide students with scholarships to our school and it was a pleasure to see our lawn filled with beautiful cars.”

During the event, car enthusiasts displayed their classic, vintage and exotic cars.

“We have great enthusiasm for our cars, but we also have a passion for giving back to the community,” said Michael Shortt of the ODC. “Bethesda is an important place to our organization, being that one of our members was adopted from here.”

The ODC is a fraternity of 50 sports car owners and those dedicated to the entertainment of auto racing and sports cars. The ODC was established in 2006 in order to honor the 100th anniversary of the first United States Grand Prix, which was held in Savannah on November 26, 1908. Generally, there are over 150 cars at ODC meetings.

As well as hosting the monthly “Coffee and Cars” meetings, the ODC commemorates its predecessor, the Savannah Automobile Club of 1904, by sponsoring rallies, racing competitions, advanced driving courses, Concours d’Elegance and other social events. Additionally, the organization actively works to improve the sport of motor racing in Savannah and to preserve Savannah’s illustrious auto racing heritage.
