GoldRush is now in their fifth year and has become well recognized as the premiere exotic car rally in the United States. This year more than 75 cars are expected to join the rally for eight days and eight nights. The rally will travel 2,000 miles from San Francisco to Chicago. In between the rally stops include Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Memphis and St. Louis. The kick-off begins in San Francisco on June 8th and ends in Chicago on June 15th.
Taylor Lynn Foundation is the named philanthropic sponsor of goldRush rally for the third year. Thanks to many supporters we raised nearly $30,000 in 2012 by selling Hearts of Gold that decorated our Taylor Lynn rally car. We have funded a considerable number of new microGRANTs because of the generosity shown by all of you.
This year we will be returning with the official rally charity car, the McLaren MP4-12C. For goldRush Rally 2013, we are proud to announce a partnership with Robert Graham, an eclectic men’s and women’s sportswear company which has become a complete lifestyle brand that fits right in with what goldRush represents. Robert Graham has designed the theme for our car this year with a pattern that has been used on a limited edition Robert Graham woven shirt.
This year you can support the foundation by purchasing a Robert Graham designed Taylor Lynn logo heart to place on the rally car. Each heart is cut from the unique pattern of the shirt design that covers the McLaren. No two hearts are alike. We plan to cover the car with these logo hearts and we need your help and support to accomplish our goals. Please to support Taylor Lynn Foundation on goldRush Rally. We encourage you to add your heart to the car by donating hearts for a great charitable cause benefiting children. You will receive a letter to confirm that your contribution is fully tax deductible.

About Taylor Lynn Foundation
Taylor Lynn Foundation is focused on enhancing the lives of children, while at the same time educating individuals to "Take a moment to give back". We provide microGRANTs to children which range from $100 to $1,000. These microGRANTs allow children to participate in events or activities they would not have access to otherwise. To show appreciation for each microGRANT received, each child creates their own way to give back to the community with the assistance of their sponsor. This way children who receive our microGRANTs understand what it means to give as well as receive. This unique concept allows each of our microGRANTs to impact the lives of at least two people.
Wingtip's unlikely origin began in traditional men’s retail, but over the past eight years has become known worldwide for offering the finest in men’s apparel, accessories, and home furnishings. In early 2010, they added a small clubhouse to their operations with one simple goal: to offer more to their best customers… more products, more experiences and more space to spread out and enjoy the finer things in life. In late 2012, they secured a new location, the two penthouse floors at 550 Montgomery. They are currently accepting members on a limited basis, who are getting in on the ground floor of something entirely new — a contemporary clubhouse steeped in history; part social space, part restaurant, part bar, and part shopping experience. Wingtip features a tailor, barber shop, golf simulator, billiards room, wine cave, champagne room, cigar lounge, restaurant, bar and soon a 1,500 square foot roof deck. There is nothing else like it on the planet.
