For the last few years Subaru of America, Subaru of New England and STi have all partnered to put together the largest gathering of like minded Subaru owners anywhere on the planet. This year, Secor Subaru became an associate sponsor, and took the opportunity to collect messages of hope for the Subaru Loves to Care event in which we are currently participating.

All said, we made some new friends and collected over 370 individual messages of hope that will be given to members of our community currently undergoing treatment for cancer. We were proud to participate, enjoyed every second of being there and are already looking forward to it next year! We invite you to check out the photos below for a few highlights from our time there.

All Set up and ready to make some new friends.

Mike Sharrio and Ryan Galloway explaining what we are there to do, and why we are doing it, to our first guests.

Mike Sharrio doing his best "Billy Mays" pitch to everyone trying to get the message out. Once people found out what we were doing, we became pretty popular. You can't see the three more rows of people just out of the picture.

The View from our booth, as the weather got nice, the crowd got huge!

giving a lucky few attendees ride alongs.

Here is the 2018 Subaru BRZ Ts--a pretty cool car for being straight from the factory.

One of over the 370 messages of hope collected during the event. The kindness of people in the Subaru family can be overwhelming!

The final tally! Thank you to everyone who took the time to give hope!

Overall the 2018 Wicked Big Meet was a fantastic experience, we would like to say thank you to a few in particular!
  • Phil Medbury for being there with us and taking all of these wonderful photos
  • Subaru of America for helping put on this fantastic event
  • Subaru of New England for coming through in a pinch when we ran out of cards (oops!)
  • The Subaru Ambassadors for providing so many cool things for us to give away. That's right, give away! We were there to collect messages of hope, we did not try and sell anything!
  • The Wicked Big Meet staff for being friendly, professional and accommodating throughout
We would also like to thank our staff who gave up their Sunday to help us out. We look forward to participating again next year! If you were there and would like to share your photos and stories, or just give us a Like, head over to our Facebook Page.
