Wrapped Ferraris and Lamborghinis were part of the 20+ car fleet that took to the roads of California recently, making the journey from San Francisco to Santa Barbara as part of “Engines for Epilepsy,” an annual 3-day drive-a-thon to draw awareness to children’s’ epilepsy.

Rallye California puts on the event, along with The Epilepsy Foundation and local children’s hospitals in the cities they visit. Participating car enthusiasts drove from June 2-5 and raised more than $15,000 for The Epilepsy Foundation. Stops along the way at children’s hospitals let the kids check out the vehicles.

“Epilepsy is one of the most common diseases in the United States, but it is also one of the most underfunded,” says Tsubasa Michishita, spokesperson for Rallye California. “Thanks to sponsors like 3M and their wrap products, we were able to increase awareness and donations for The Epilepsy Foundation.”

3M sponsored the event by providing 3M Wrap Film Series 1080 vehicle graphics to the participating cars in an effort to boost awareness of the cause.

This intersection of autos, vehicle graphics and philanthropy embodies the Rallye California motto of “bringing the car culture together for a greater cause.”
