Chill Upgrade Membership Ludicrous Plaid!

Giving Back to Buffalo

On November 14, 2020, TOCNYS Niagara Frontier held the first odd-month meet 'n' greet event at "Chargetowaga" since our March meetup, this time with a special twist: We invited members to bring some nonperishable food to donate.

The last time we teamed up with Giga NY, back in June, 2020, we assisted those in need of healthy nutrition thanks to two Model 3s brimming with donations.


Brisk but sunny, this past Saturday's socially distanced gathering was a hit! No less than nine members and six of their guests met to get new-owner questions answered, chat with old and new friends, and—last, but definitely not least—haul out frunks full of grocery donations.

A few group snapshots later, Ludicrous Member Christy Willams-Wood, her daughter Olivia, and Ludicrous Member Kenny Martin joined Yours Truly to transport the collections via mini caravan to the FeedMore WNY food bank warehouse at 91 Holt Street, Buffalo. (Near the destination, it attracted the attention of one exuberant neighbor who greeted us on site, telling us what a rare and wonderful sight it was.)


FeedMore staff also emerged from the warehouse to see the spectacle of three 3s and then receive the epic haul of groceries . . . all 191 lbs. of it! That's right, enough that they summoned (well, the old-fashioned way) a forklift with a friendly driver to assist. Make that an electric forklift!


A hearty round of thanks to all TOCNYS members and guests who participated. If you missed out, fear not—we are planning future charity events, including a collaboration with some local surprise entities that stands to be even more rewarding for everyone there. Please stay tuned and be sure to catch our likely virtual meetups to be held during the colder months.


Personally, I would like to share that this event showed off TOCNYS Niagara Frontier at its finest yet: a diverse team of owners, uniting above and beyond the brand, at a time when meeting in person has never been trickier. And we are only beginning to realize the potential all of us have together. Excelsior!
