2021 – Because of COVID-19, we were unable to host our Annual Salute to Veterans Car & Motorcycle Show…. So, we put on a Poker Run on August 14, 2021! All cars, trucks and motorcycles were welcome. We began at So-Cal NW Speed Shop – Tualatin. We ended at the Golden Valley Brewery/Restaurant – Beaverton. Beautiful scenery and an end ceremony with live music, food/drink, best/lowest poker hand prizes, and more!

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. People of all ages love the rumble as they come in.

Funds are raised through trophy sponsorship, vehicle registrations, silent auction, vendor fees, and donations. Over $269,000 has been raised in our ten years for local veterans and their families in need – for instance, at the SA Veterans Center we built an ADA ramp, children’s play, BBQ area, raised-bed gardens, ADA bathrooms, and funded kids school supplies and nutrition programs and more. We purchased a passenger van for the Veterans Village in Clackamas so that staff can transport residents to appointments and services. An outdoor gazebo meeting place with heat lamps and BBQ was also built on the grounds. We couldn’t do this without your help, thank you!
