Porsche collectors and enthusiasts Antonio Kawage, Michael Meldrum, Rudy Mancinas and Neil Meissiner have partnered to curate a unique and meaningful fun event for classic and current Porsche enthusiasts, planned as an annual event for the city. The inaugural laid back experience 'TejasTreffen’ is to be held in the Art District of Houston, TX at Spring Street Studios November 19th.
The event will combine art and automotive with food and drink showcasing the Porsche line up from the 356 and 911 to the Transaxle and current modern water-cooled cars, to tantalize the visual senses all curated inside the halls of the art studio. Outside up to eighty cars from concours to outlaws will be displayed giving the event a unique feel.
Organizer and partner Antonio Kawage said, “TejasTreffen is the marriage of two words that encompass a region, Texas, and a meeting. Tejas was the Native American spelling and phonetic pronunciation for Texas in Spanish. Treffen is the German word for reunion or meet. Given the rich Latino culture in Texas and the German roots of the Porsche brand our name aims to represent a gathering of people, art and cars in a culturally rich land.”
A generous portion of the proceeds will benefit Houston's Snowdrop Foundation. The charity provides scholarships for college bound pediatric cancer patients and childhood cancer survivors while raising awareness and funding for continued research to cure childhood cancer. In just forty-five years the overall survival rate for children with cancer has increased from 10% to 70%. The aim is to have a 100% survival rate which will be helped by continued donations from the Snowdrop Foundations’s Childhood Cancer Research contributions.
President and Co-Founder of Snowdrop Foundation Kevin Kline said, "We're so honored to be asked to benefit from TejasTreffen. The proceeds raised will help Snowdrop Foundation fulfill our mission and hopefully get us to a cure for childhood cancer faster than a 911 Turbo S."
Tickets for the event are prices at $10 to include two drinks available at
