The clear, sunny skies, made it a perfect day for a few members of the Dakota Region Porsche Club of America (DRPCA) to take a cruise to WellFully Premier Adolescent Care Center to make a $7,500 donation as well as show off a few of their rides.
The money was raised during the club's annual "Run for the Hills" event held every August when Porsche owners of all years and models from all over the country come to cruise the winding roads of the Black Hills.
DRPCA Treasurer Roger St. Pierre explained his personal connection to WellFully, noting that from 1997 to 2011, he served on the WellFully Board of Directors as its Treasurer. "Through the years, I've seen the good the WellSprings (as it was called at that time) has done for the youth of this community." This is the second year of contributing to WellFully, and he noted, "DRPCA is proud to make the contribution because the mission of WellFully is dear to many of the car club's members hearts."
It is through organizations such as the Dakota Region Porsche Club of America and many others that WellFully has received community support to continue to help at-risk youth for over thirty years.
