Bimmer-Con To Feature Daryl Dixon Motorcycle Giveaway In Benefit Of Female Veterans Unite, Inc.

BMW of Sarasota will host its first ever BimmerCon on Saturday, April 29th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at its dealership located at 5151 Clark Road, Sarasota, Florida 34233. The event will feature celebrity judges, a costume contest, cash prizes, and a grand prize giveaway of "Daryl Dixon's Bike" from the AMC series The Walking Dead.

Sarasota, Florida (PRWEB) April 26, 2017 - BMW of Sarasota recently announced that it will be hosting its inaugural Bimmer-Con event on Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at its dealership located at 5151 Clark Road, Sarasota Florida 34233. This year's event will be Walking Dead themed and will feature a cash costume contest, luxury giveaways, and other family-friendly activities.

BimmerCon was organized this year in benefit of Female Veterans Unite, Inc., a local non-profit that organizes retreats for female veterans.

All proceeds from future Bimmer-Con events will also be donated to organizations that raise awareness and provide services, support and training for U.S. veterans.

BimmerCon's main attraction this year is a custom Classified Moto 920R motorcycle previously owned by actor Norman Reedus valued at nearly $40,000. The actor's character, Daryl Dixon, also uses a similar bike on the AMC hit show The Walking Dead.

Last week the Morgan Automotive Group dealership released a short promo video detailing the rules for the highly-anticipated Daryl Dixon Bike giveaway. BMW of Sarasota will be giving away the custom Classified Moto at the event to a winner selected from video entries submitted before midnight on Friday, April 28, 2017.

Other prizes include a 4 hour cruise on a 62 inch yacht on Sarasota Bay, a free weekend rental of a new BMW convertible 4 series and over $1,500.00 in cash prizes for the Walking Dead themed costume contest.

The event will also host celebrity judges that will serve as an expert panel for both the costume and the video entry contest.
