Fraxa foundation presents award to doris buffett
The Fraxa Research Foundation was started by three parents of children who suffer from a genetic disorder called Fragile X. Since 1994, Fraxa has donated over $17 million dollars for scientific research. Doris Buffet, President of the Sunshine Lady Foundation and sister of Warren Buffett, received recognition at the Fraxa gala for donating $2 million dollars to the charity.

In 2007, Buffett teamed up with Fraxa to create the "Doris Buffett Challenge" honoring to match all donations.

Buffett's Sunshine Lady Foundation consists of 150 "sunbeams" across the country who each allocate $10,000 a year to the less fortunate. "We never give a handout," the foundation's brochure says. "We give a hand up."

Herb Chambers Cars and Coffee - BMW of Sudbury
With the lure of an original McLaren F1 - one of only a handful ever produced in the world - on display at Herb Chambers BMW of Sudbury, the first annual "Herb Chambers Cars and Coffee" was a great success. Motorists from New England came out to the suburbs for Cars and Coffee to show off their wheels, check out the dealership, say hello to Herb and have a cup of joe.

I don't know what Herb was talking about but my guess would be "How many more Mclaren's do I have then you?"
Herb's McLaren F1 has a top speed of 240mph. There were only 106 ever produced. J. Leno has one - Ralph Lauren snagged three. Insured for over two million dollars, these cars are the real deal. Click HERE to read up on the Mclaren F1.
My favorite part of the whole day - when Herb set his coffee down on the McLaren. No big deal!
Meet Keith Wickstrom. He drove 7.5 hours from Maryland simply because he heard there was going to be a McLaren on display. When Herb Chambers found out about this, Keith was invited to get comfortable for a photo.
Keith had a good time at Cars and Coffee!
I became a fan, too.
Meanwhile outside...
Herb and Melissa.
Herb donated a ride in his helicopter to charity. The guests were picked up in the parking lot of the dealership.
This picture seems so american to me.
I love the color! They don't make cars like this anymore. Now everything is "flint mica".
Lucky the dog.
