We have some exciting news to share! The Club will host a cars & coffee event at the national headquarters in Greer, South Carolina, on Saturday, October 24 from 9 to 11 a.m., as part of the FoundationFest weekend. We know so many of you are excited to share your BMW passion again with fellow enthusiasts and the time has finally come! Set your navigation destination to the BMW CCA national office at 2350 Highway 101 S, Greer, South Carolina 29651.
Located just three miles from the BMW Performance Center and the Foundation, the national office will welcome all members to display their BMWs, MINIs, and BMW Motorcycles on the lawn Saturday morning. In addition, the club will have a lifestyle merchandise booth open, so you can pick something up from our latest collection of official BMW CCA apparel and accessories. Plus, this year’s incredible Grand Prize raffle car—the 1-of-1 BMW CCA Edition M5 Competition Build by Turn 14 Distribution—will be on display. We’ll also have a coffee and donut truck onsite to fuel your caffeine and sugar intake!
Parking in the cars & coffee is $10 per car, which includes a swag bag with $5 coupon for the BMW CCA merchandise booth. Cars & coffee parking is limited to 200 spaces, so make sure to register soon. Spectator admission is free and general parking will be available across the street.

Food Drive: Bring Non-Perishable Food To Benefit United Ministries
During the event, we will be holding a food drive to benefit the food pantry of United Ministries. Please bring non-perishable cans and dry goods. Many families are in a tough spot during this time and we’d like to help out.
Here are some examples of needed goods:
- Canned meats (beef stew, tuna, chili)
- Canned fruit and veggies (green beans, peas, corn)
- Dry goods like pasta, cereal, beans, peanut butter, powdered milk
- Others: rice, noodles, mac & cheese
BMW Talent Program
Representatives and recruiters from the BMW Talent Program will be onsite during the Cars & Coffee with a booth. The BMW Talent Programs offers opportunities for current college students, as well as recent university graduates, to become equipped with knowledge and experience to excel in the future workforce. These talent programs support BMW’s goal of attracting the best and brightest individuals to start their careers with BMW.
While participating in these programs, individuals are exposed to the company’s culture and core values of responsibility, appreciation, transparency, trust, and openness. In addition, participants experience diversity in the workplace and develop competencies to shape and lead the future.
Health & Safety (Updated October 19, 2020)
COVID-19 numbers in SC are currently rated as “plateaued,” however, they remain at double digits and have begun to uptick. For your safety and that of our friends and family, members must wear a mask when they are outside and not able to socially distance.
Due to the virus, general access to the building will not be available. There will be access to the bathrooms on the upper level of the main building. Wearing a mask is required for entry. Note: Bathrooms will close periodically for sanitation.
Please make plans to join us at the epicenter of all things BMW in the U.S. on Saturday, October 24—we look forward to seeing you soon!—Chris Hennecy
