    Thank you to all the FOG Rally drivers and co-drivers, sponsors and donors, supporters and friends who have already contributed to our COVID-19 Relief for Children and Families campaign.

    This is the 'last call' for registrations for the virtual wine tasting with Kyle MacLachlan on Tuesday, July 14th starting at 7:00pm. Registration will close on Monday, July 6th to ensure the wines are delivered in time for the event; there will be no exceptions.

    This is also the last time we will ask you to make a direct donation to the COVID-19 Relief for Children and Families campaign. We are on track to reach our goal of raising $30,000, however we have extended the campaign until July 6th. Your donation will have a direct and immediate impact to help those still in need.

    Dear FOCF Community,

    A little over a month ago we called on you to join together to raise $30,000 in 30 days to help children and families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This was the first time in our nine year history we asked you to make a donation separate from your support of the annual FOG Rally. And, quite frankly, we didn't know what to expect.

    Your response has been both exceptional and inspiring as we have not only met our $30,000 goal, but we have exceeded it! And, as a result, we've been able to give $31,000 in grants to these organizations to have a direct and immediate impact on Bay Area children and families in need due to the COVID-19 pandemic:
    • Bay Area Crisis Nursery (East Bay)
    • Edgewood Center for Children and Families (San Francisco)
    • Larkin Street Youth Services (San Francisco)
    • Napa Valley New Deal (Napa/Sonoma)
    • Palo Alto Community Fund (Peninsula)
    The success of the COVID-19 Relief for Children and Families campaign is a result of the generosity and hard work of many. We'd like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank these individuals and organizations:

    ... Donors,

    Dear FOCF Community,

    It goes without saying that this has truly been a year like no other.

    We began the year with our focus on making the 10th Anniversary 2020 FOG Rally a special event for you, our community, to enjoy. And then, in response to the unfolding pandemic, we shifted our focus to helping Bay Area children and families in immediate need. We asked for your help and you responded. Your donations to the COVID -19 Relief for Children and Families Campaign made it possible for us to provide over $30,000 in much needed meals, food, shelter and necessities through very deserving local organizations. And they have let us know that our donations truly made a difference.

    We are looking forward to the new year and already have picked up where we left off in making the preparations for the 10th Anniversary 2021 FOG Rally, September 23rd - 26th. We will begin with the Launch Party and Fundraiser at Menlo Circus Club on Thursday night. And the next morning, we will depart from there for our drive to the Ritz-Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara for a weekend of activities, returning on Sunday. We hope you have 'saved the date' in your calendar and will join us in making this a truly memorable event.

    Our best wishes for a healthy and safe holiday season, and the new year ahead.

    Ferrari Owners Charitable Foundation Board of Directors,

    Tony Abdulmassih / Caren Bell
    Michael Bell / Doug Carlisle
    Chris Dolan / Lance Dublin
    Damon Focaracci / Ed Peggs
    Jeff Peterson / Evan Shone
    Brenda van Camp / Jonathan Whitehead

    P.S. In the event you are looking to make a year-end tax-deductible donation please help us brighten the holidays of the children and families served by these deserving organizations: Bay Area Crisis Nursery; Larkin Street Youth Services; and, Palo Alto Community Fund. We will accept donations until December 31st and to ensure they have an immediate impact, we will disperse these funds within 30 days.
    To make a donation, go to: https://focf.tofinoauctions.com/endof2020/give.
    Thank you!

    This year the FOG Rally celebrates a decade of making a difference for kids. In honor of this important milestone, the Rally will jointly benefit: Make-A-Wish®Greater Bay Area, marking the seventh consecutive year of our charity partnership, and the FOCF Fund 21 for Kids which we established this year to provide grants to local organizations directly helping kids in need.

    Through the six years of our partnership with Make A-Wish Greater Bay Areawe've already made it possible for hundreds of children with critical illnesses to receive life changing wishes. As a result of this year's Rally, we are looking forward to being able to fund even more wishes and change the lives of even more children.

    Bay Area Crisis Nursery and Larkin Street Youth Services have been selected as the initial two organizations to receive grants for emergency services, food, and life necessities from the FOCF Fund 21 for Kids. Additional organizations will be selected by the FOCF Board from charities nominated solely by Rally drivers, participants and sponsors in the coming months.

    UPDATE 04/08/21: UNPRECEDENTED! It's a sell out!

    Image Unavailable, Please Login

    For the first time in it's ten year history, the 2021 FOG Rally is sold out ... and it happened in just 36 hours! Thank you for this outpouring of support.

    However due to this year’s special refund policy we will not officially close registration until April 30. Beginning May 1, those on the waitlist will be notified if there is registration space available for them.

    Image Unavailable, Please Login

    There are still sponsorship opportunities available for the 2021 FOG Rally. Whether you are a returning sponsor or new sponsor, represent a large corporation or small business, or have a family foundation or charitable trust, your sponsorship will directly enable Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area to grant more wishes and the FOCF Fund 21 for Kids to provide grants for kid-focused community organizations. And with the Rally a sell-out, this means greater opportunity for sponsors for wider exposure and increased recognition. Please email us at info@fogrally.com to request a Sponsor Package or connect us with a potential sponsor.

    We are pleased to introduce you to these returning and new sponsors who have already made commitments for the 2021 FOG Rally. And we encourage you to learn more about each of them by clicking on the active links or reaching out directly to the named contact.
    We sincerely appreciate the support of these sponsors as we celebrate a decade of making a difference for children in need.
