The 12th edition of Gulf Oil Corporation’s Gulf Foster a Child Car Drive concluded with exactly what it promised, a day full of frolic, fun and happiness for the orphaned children.
The drive was organized by Sportscraft and was held on Feb 16th, 2014. The drive started from Maharashtra State Police Housing and Welfare Corp. in the morning and finished at Hotel Duke’s Retreat, in Khandala, at around 13.00 IST. Participants decorated their cars and dressed on the themes Child Labour and Reduce, Recycle & Reuse. The Best decorated car & the Best dressed team took home the winning trophies.
The event was conceived to bring a smile on the faces of under-privileged children and to bring awareness among the masses about the plight of these children. Each car’s crew was made up of a driver, navigator and minimum one child as well as an orphan child. In a unique combination of navigational expertise & general knowledge, the driver and his crew had to decipher a route chart (Tulip chart) that was provided at the start of the drive and also answer various general knowledge questions ranging from Sports, current affairs, Bollywood, Hollywood etc. at various pit-stops on the way to the final destination.
