And the Winner is – Lutheran Social Services!

The Dakota Region Porsche Club held their second annual 2.4 Hours of Dakota fundraiser on February 25 in support of LSS Center for New Americans.

Winners: Second place finisher Laura Smith-Hill, winner Jacklyn Mollison with her Porsche Cup and third place finisher Jamie Lennon.

The event pits car enthusiasts of all ages against each other in a race for the finish line and the honor of claiming the coveted Porsche Cup. More than 40 cars participated with racers aged 8 to 70. A hotly contested competition was eventually won by Jacklyn Mollison (pictured proudly displaying her Porsche Cup).

The Dakota Region Porsche Club elected to donate proceeds from the event to LSS Center for New Americans to assist newly arrived refugees with transportation. With a record turnout this year, the Dakota Region Porsche Club was able to present LSS with a check for $1,550.
