1st Country Run of 2016 to Mercedes-Benz Bunbury – Sunday 17th January
Twenty five club members met in West Perth on Sunday the 17th of January, setting off on Kwinana Freeway for MBCCWA’s first event of 2016.
After a short pitstop at Miami Bakehouse in West Pinjarra, vehicles continued along Forrest Highway carefully moving through the horrific scenes left by fires which recently swept through WA’s south-west.
After some light drizzle and a smooth 180km drive, members arrived at Mercedes-Benz Bunbury where staff were standing by to serve up a real treat, in more ways than one!
A great range of demonstration vehicles, including the all-new GLC, GLE, C and S-Class were on display with the lovely Ebony on hand to assist with members’ enquiries.
Several vehicles from a local private collection (including vintage and various AMG Black Series models) were also on show, causing quite a stir amongst members.
Last but not least, members enjoyed refreshments and a delicious barbecue lunch, proudly provided by Mercedes-Benz Bunbury.
Given the devastating scenes witnessed en-route, members also reached into their pockets and generously donated to the Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund, sending $645 in aid of the Waroona and District Fires Appeal 2016.
A massive thank you must go to Steve and his team at Mercedes-Benz Bunbury for their generous hospitality, plus those members who kindly donated to aid efforts in Waroona.
