Pat, another wonderful-to-know MINI owner, was tragically hurt in a work accident earlier this year – he remains in hospital and has limited movement of his body & limbs.
See this MINI2 thread and the Pats Progress website set up to support him.
Today, the First Annual Pasta For Pat event happened down in Rhode Island, with about 100 of his family & friends – including more than 20 MINIs / owners – getting together to raise money for Pat!
Surprise guest of honour was Pat & Angela – warmly greeted by Steve 🙂
Many MINI friends present too … Richard, Annette, Steve, Angela, Libby, John, Sheena, Thom … In addition to the entry ticket, money was raised with various “door prizes” – tickets sold for $1 each which you put in the bucket for the prize(s) you’d like to win – I was lucky enough to win something!
Bonus entertainment – a very strange sequence involving the Mens Bathroom, a group of MINI guys, Annette, a Duck and an Elk!
