St. Augustine

Southern Stars and Hagerty donated toys for "Cookies & Milk with Santa" at Classic Car Museum of St. Augustine (FL).

Mercedes-Benz Club of America (MBCA) Regional Director (Southeast) David Wommer and Hagerty Territory Manager (North Florida) Vito Vacca joined forces to donate a trunk of toys to underprivileged children in our area. Mercedes-Benz Club of America Southern Stars Section, @Dave_MBCA (IG), and @HagertyVito (IG) donated toys to the Classic Car Museum of St. Augustine in partnership with Champion Church. The museum hosted “Cookies & Milk with Santa”, as they do every year, on Thursday, December 21. They will have Santa and Buddy the Elf handing out presents directly to deserving children.

A very special thank you to Hagerty! If you have a special Mercedes-Benz such as a classic, exotic, AMG, or a collection, be sure to reach out to our North Florida Territory Manager, Vito Vacca @HagertyVito (IG) ([email protected] / 904-9ONE4-12ONE2), for a quote. Yes, they insure many modern AMGs that are not otherwise classic or collectible. Don’t forget, if you are an MBCA Member, you will save even more on your Hagerty premiums. Call or email Vito Vacca rather than simply get a quote online! Hagerty is a national sponsor of MBCA and a local sponsor of Southern Stars Section. As an MBCA Member, you will receive an additional discount on your policy. Be sure to have a member number when you call for your quote!

Beginning around 7:00 am, Southern Stars Section leadership will assemble in the “Central Lot” at Caffeine and Octane Jacksonville to prepare for the event starting at 8:00 a.m. and welcome fellow Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts. Aim for gate #3, to the slight left of the “Exotics Lot” if approaching from the Southside Blvd main entrance. We are typically in front of the “Furniture Source” storefront (formerly Sears) at the end of the mall, near the parking garages.

Vehicles that cannot remain in the Central Lot from 8-11 a.m. are asked to park in the Exhibit Lot for easier entry and departure, and pedestrian safety.

Chick-fil-A and restrooms in the Avenues Mall food court will open early for Caffeine and Octane attendees at 7:30 am. (Yes, they serve coffee!)

From Caffeine and Octane Jax ( “If you’re displaying your vehicle, and you hope to be in the Central Lot, we suggest that you arrive by 7 am, at the latest.”
