Irvine, Calif. (PRWEB) October 5, 2008
Irvine BMW is inviting all Southern California residents to its Third Annual Taste of Irvine BMW event on Saturday, Oct. 18 and Sunday, Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at its dealership at 9881 Research Drive in Irvine.
"Not only will this be a fun event for the whole family, it will be a great way to help out a much deserving charity," said Damon Shelly, owner of the Shelly Group and Irvine BMW. "A percentage of the proceeds from the event will go toward finding a cure for Fragile X, the most common inherited cause of intellectual impairment and autism."
The festivities will include live entertainment and a vintage car display. The highlight, of course, will be complimentary tasting from some of the most popular restaurants in Orange County such as Kimera Restaurant Lounge, BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse, Kings Fish House, the Wine Pavilion, Donna B's Bakery, Pat & Oscar's, La Cocina De Ricardo, The Counter and TGIS Catering.
FRAXA was founded in 1994 by three parents of children with Fragile X to support scientific research aimed at finding a treatment and a cure for Fragile X. Fragile X research is drastically under funded, considering its high prevalence, prospects for a cure, and the promise that this research holds for advancing understanding of other disorders like autism, Alzheimer's disease and X-linked mental retardation.
