Crab CHP’pino Benefit for the CHP 11-99 Foundation


A Ticket You’ll Be Happy to Have

If you’re an auto enthusiast — collector, track-driving fan or hobbyist — you may already know the CHP 11-99 Foundation. Started in 1982, the 11-99 Foundation has distributed more than $28 million to current and retired CHP employees and their families, as well as death benefits and scholarships to the families of officers who have fallen in the line of duty. This is essential assistance for those who put their lives on the line everyday to keep us safe.

The CHP 11-99 Foundation is also very involved here on the Monterey Peninsula with Monterey Car Week activities. The Foundation participates annually in fundraising events connected with both McCall’s Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center and the Quail, A Motorsports Gathering at Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley.

Garage Unlimited of Monterey Co-hosting the Annual Crab CHP’pino Event at Club Auto Sport in San Jose

In 2017, Garage Unlimited of Monterey will play an active role in another can’t-miss fundraiser as part of the hosting committee for the 7th Annual Crab CHP’pino event held at stunning Club Auto Sport in San Jose. The host committee will include co-developers Case Swenson, Dennis Chambers, and Ralph Borelli of Borelli Investment Company — who’s been involved with the Crab CHP’pino event since its inception.

The dinner and auction in 2017 is set for Saturday, March 11th from 5 to 10 p.m. in Club Auto Sport’s elegant 10,000-square-foot clubhouse with its sparkling black granite floors, spectacular 20-foot window walls, video screens, and dramatic lighting. Guests will also find themselves surrounded by a breathtaking display of vintage, exotic and luxury cars.

Nearly $1 Million in Contributions

The Crab CHP’pino event has grown annually, with more than 500 business people, community leaders and local sports figures and celebrities in attendance. More importantly, net proceeds from the event over the previous six years are approaching $1 million to support the 11-99 Foundation’s important mission. You can watch a video about the 6th Annual Crab CHP’pino here. Ticket sales are always brisk — and this is one CHP ticket you’ll be glad to get!
