By Auto News Log • March 9th, 2011

HOMESTEAD, Fla. - The 2011 Continental Tire Dream Giveaway, a fundraising event sponsored by WorldCause Foundation, kicked off on March 1, 2011, providing an opportunity to help seriously ill children while being given the chance to be named the proud owner of both the one-of-a-kind 2011 Hurley Haywood Edition Porsche GT3 and a 2011 Porsche Cayenne S. Hybrid – thanks to Continental Tire and GRAND-AM.

The 2011 Hurley Haywood Edition Porsche GT3 was named after Motorsports Hall of Famer and GRAND-AM Racing legend, Hurley Haywood who is the Chief Driving Instructor for Porsche of America and a member of the Brumos Racing team. The GT3 bears several unique Hurley Haywood inspired modifications and it’s the fastest, most powerful 911 GT3 to date. The Hurley Haywood Edition Porsche GT3 offers a 3.8 liter six-cylinder boxer engine and has the ability to accelerate to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds. This spectacular car is the only Hurley Haywood GT3 in existence.

And it won’t be just the keys the lucky winner will receive from Hurley Haywood, as the winningest Rolex 24 At Daytona driver in history has agreed to teach the winner how to make the most out of the amazing performance car.

The matching 2011 Porsche Cayenne S. Hybrid, a beautiful SUV, averages 21 MPG in city driving and 25 MPG on the highway. The Porsche Cayenne S. Hybrid can go from 0-60 in 6.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 150 mph.

Both vehicles will come completely outfitted with a brand new set of top of the line Continental Tires.

Continental Tire, working with GRAND-AM and Dream Giveaways, has created the Continental Tire Dream Giveaway. The program was created to benefit charities like WorldCause Foundation and Camp Boggy Creek, the Official Charity of GRAND-AM.

WorldCause Foundation, an organization which is dedicated to providing help to those in abject poverty with a special emphasis on easing the suffering of children, provides funding to selected tax-exempt non-profit organizations and has chosen Camp Boggy Creek, which is Mr. Haywood’s favorite cause, to receive a portion of the proceeds from the 2011 Continental Tire Dream Giveaway. Camp Boggy Creek, a Hole-in-the-Wall camp co-founded by actor/philanthropist Paul Newman and General H. Norman Schwarzkoph, is a year-round medical camp for children ages 7-16 who are suffering from chronic or life-threatening illnesses.

The Mission of Camp Boggy Creek is to enrich the lives of children who have chronic or life threatening illnesses by creating camping experiences that are memorable, exciting, fun, empowering, physically safe and medically sound. Camp Boggy Creek is a proud member of The Association of Hole In The Wall Camps. To learn more about them visit www.holeinthewallcamps.org.

GRAND-AM fans will have several ways to engage in this program, from having the chance to double their entries at GRAND-AM race events and at any participating Continental Tire retailers around the country.

The Continental Tire Dream Giveaway, which was made possible because of the generous support from Continental Tire and GRAND-AM Road Racing, will continue through October 15, 2011 with the winner being announced on or about October 24, 2011. The Continental Tire Dream Giveaway is just one aspect of the exciting partnership with GRAND-AM as Continental Tire is Official Tire and Exclusive supplier of all tires to the Rolex Sports Car Series and the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series.
