A COVID-19 Update from SPC
Hello Space Coasters!
We are cautiously continuing our outdoor events with great respect for the COVID-19 illness. Please understand that we are doing our best to move forward, but events may be postponed or canceled as new regulations and information become available. The CDC recommends slowing the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask when around people who don’t live in your household. Staying at least 6 feet away from others. Washing your hands often and use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
Breaking News! – Several Calendar Months have become available for 2021
If you have ever dreamed about being in the Space Coast PCA Annual Charity Calendar now is your chance! The calendar had been sold out since March – but 3 spots have recently become available! Your $500 donation to the Hospice Unit at Cape Canaveral Hospital gets you a one on one session with award-winning photographer Ray Baldino. He creates a beautiful photo of you and your Porsche(s) to be included in the 2021 Space Coast PCA calendar.

The appearance of our activities will be different with social distancing (6 feet apart), lots of handwashing/sanitizing and facemasks encouraged when in close contact.
