The Car Show is an all-volunteer produced event including 75 -80 the day of the event
We are able to secure most of the event budget items at no cost so that 90% of the proceeds assist veterans

In 2012 we had 99 cars, a few motorcycles and city and county vehicles, and about 350 attendees
We grew in 2017 to 403 cars, 57 motorcycles, 20 military vehicles, a Huey and a Loach Helicopter
