HISTORY OF THE SALUTE TO VETERAN CAR & MOTORCYCLE SHOW
Aug. 15th 2020 will be the 9th Annual Salute to Veterans Car & Motorcycle Show
In the beginning the event was a fundraiser solely for the Salvation Army Veterans & Family Center and now we share the funds raised with other veteran charities.
Our Car Show is an all-volunteer produced event.
We have grown from 99 cars and 1 (!) motorcycle to over 400 vehicles including a great variety of show cars, motorcycles, military vehicles, helicopters, and city/county vehicles.
The Disabled Veterans Motorcycle Club hosts a Motorcycle Run ending at the event.
Funds are raised through trophy sponsorship, vehicle registrations, raffle, vendor fees, and donations.
Over $189,000 has been raised in our seven years for local veterans and their families in need - (for instance, at the SA Veterans Center we built an ADA ramp, children's play and BBQ area, raised-bed gardens, ADA bathrooms and funded kids school supplies and nutrition programs and more...)
