What: TejasTreffen Porsche event.

Where: Spring Street Studios.

The scoop: More than 1,200 car collectors and enthusiasts turned out for the inaugural TejasTreffen event, which showcased 100 Porsche models — from a classic Porsche 962 to state-of-the-art supercar, the 918 Spyder. 

And it was all in the name of a good cause. TejasTreffen founders Antonio Kawage, Michael Meldrum, Rudy Mancinas and Niels Meissner designated the Houston chapter of non-profit, the Snowdrop Foundation, as the beneficiary of proceeds raised. The charity supports college-bound pediatric cancer patients, childhood cancer survivors, and continued research to cure childhood cancer. 

A live auction of five vintage Porsche hoods, each painted by local artists, contributed to fundraising efforts, which totaled more than $20,000.

Who: Fox 26 morning news anchor Rita Garcia, Sergio Selvera, Brandon Schmitt, Genessis Martinez, Jim Bauer, Chris Harwood, Amy Rogers, Rob Spragg, Shannon Cunningham, Candice and Frank Armstrong, Nick and Carol Dunlop, and Eileen and Scott Redding.
