If you keep up to date with the DWT's social media, you likely have seen posts of our team member, Joe Ercoli, also known as the orange truck guy. Joe is easily recognizable by being decked out in his DWT and Orange Truck real estate merch. Joe drives an impressive old-school Ford 100 truck that is bright orange. The 51-year-old truck is assured to make you do a double take while Joe is cruising down the road. Joe hosts his infamous cars and coffee event every third Saturday of the month at Top Fuel Espresso. Car owners of all makes, models, and years come to participate in the fun event ranging from a 1970 Fiat 500 to a decked-out Mustang. Car enthusiasts from all over the valley come together over their love for cars and to enjoy a nice cup of joe (no pun intended). Joe's cars and coffee event continues to grow monthly, especially now since the weather is so enjoyable. Start your day off right this Saturday morning by coming to Cars and Coffee bright and early. The event is held at Top Fuel Espresso, located right on Guadalupe and Cooper Rd in Gilbert. Be sure to stop by 7 - 10 am to see Joe with his Old Orange truck along with all the other cars!

Whew! What a weekend! We are still on a high from our 9th annual Save Second Base Pub Crawl that took place two weekends ago. It was great to see everyone come together for a great cause. We started off the party at Craft 64 for happy hour Friday afternoon. The large crowd then disbursed to the other eight bars located all over Downtown Chandler. The night ended with live music and beer pongs at Bourbon Jacks! Saturday morning we were back at it bright and early! An intense corn hole tournament took place Saturday morning on Quarthaus's lawn. Following the corn hole tournament, a beer pong tournament took place at the Stillery with all of the lender sponsors from the event. It was so great to see the sea of pink shirts flood the streets of Downtown Chandler!
We want to say a huge thank to anyone who helped support our Save Second Base event in any capacity. Our event is a success because of your guy's unconditional support! Through our 600 pub crawl ticket sales, raffle tickets, and Go Fund Me page we raised a total of $30,000 for our two recipients. It was such a special moment giving Shannon and Ronni their checks. Their positive and bright energy is so contagious. We are so grateful the two of them opened up and shared their stories with us.
We are already looking forward to our 10th annual pub crawl event that will take place October of next year. Before then we will be hosting our 3rd annual charity golf tournament in the spring. We as the Darwin Wall Team make it a priority to give back to our community and love to see others in the community come together to support a great cause all the while having fun.
