A lifelong driving enthusiast, Morris Briglio, the Vancouver-based president of The Mortgage Advantage Financial Services, can often be found behind the wheel of one of his beloved Porsches. In addition to the driving, a large part of the joy Briglio derives from owning such eye-catching cars comes from the charity work they allow him to carry out. Briglio’s local chapter of the Porsche Club of America holds a bi-weekly drive on the Sea to Sky Highway; every driver must make a donation the Shriners, which is then matched by the restaurant where the ride culminates.
But the highlight of the year for Briglio is the club’s Father’s Day Show and Shine. “The people who come in to see the cars have the option of making a donation and choosing vehicle,” Briglio says. “They jump in the passenger seat, and [we] drive up to Cypress Mountain. I typically take the [red Porsche] and get chosen every year.”
