CIR Philanthropies
The Central Indiana Region of PCA has a long history of charitable and community service activities. In addition to
CruZionsville, CIR hosted 2 Teen Street Survival events during 2016. With Randy Faunce as the Chair, we
trained approximately 55 teen drivers to more effectively avoid accidents while driving. In addition to
Teen Street Survival, CIR contributes approximately 10% of the funds above $50,000 (a figure that
represents our minimal operating capital) to charity each year. The beneficiaries of these monies for
2016 included the Alzheimer’s Association of Central Indiana, the Little Sisters of the Poor ($2,000), and
the Peyton Manning Hospital for Children ($2,000).

 

CruZionsville is the brain-child of CIR member Steve Tarr. Steve first proposed the concept of this
community Porsche event in 2011 and it has grown exponentially from its modest beginnings. It
would be impossible to count the hours, weeks, and months of effort that Steve, his wife Alice, and the
members of his volunteer “army” have devoted to making CruZionsville one of the largest events of its
kind in the Midwest.

CruzZionsville The CruZionsville event is a Porsche car show organized by Steve Tarr. The money raised goes to the Alzheimer’s Organization.  It raised $22,000 in 2017 and since 2011 it has contributed more than $125,000 to the Alzheimer Fund!
Street Survival The Central Indiana Region and the Street Survival Foundation join together to give safety driving instructions to teen drivers.
