Save the date for the Houston Construction Industry Charities' eighth annual fundraising extravaganza, the Guitars N' Cars Auto Show. Scheduled for Saturday, December 1st at the Sam Houston Race Park, this big Houston family event celebrates classic cars, vintage guitars, live music and most importantly, our veterans, with funds raised once again benefiting U.S. VETS-Houston.

The Guitars N' Cars Auto Show kicks off at 12pm on Saturday, December 1st and runs until 6pm, showcasing American classics, exotics, hot rods, muscle machines, cars, trucks and motorcycles galore. It's a rain or shine, family-friendly gathering, with live music, vendors, silent auction and new for this year, food trucks and photos with Santa. All makes, models and years of vehicle are welcome, with move-in from 9am to 11am and registration available online prior to the event at, or onsite on the day itself.
The Guitars N' Cars Auto Show serves as the Houston Construction Industry Charities' main annual fundraiser. According to the US Department of Housing & Urban Development an estimated 49,933 veterans can be homeless on any given night and Houston has the fourth largest population of homeless veterans in the country. HCIC was founded to unite local construction industry resources in giving back to the local community and raising money for the Houston U.S-Vets program, helping with housing, job placement and the general daily needs of over 500 veterans. Over the past seven years the non-profit has built a much-needed state of the art commercial kitchen for the Houston U.S. Vets facility at Midtown Terrace (2012-2013), purchased a transport van (2014), and donated a further $340,000 directly from 2014 to 2017. All in all, HCIC has proudly raised over 1.3 MILLION DOLLARS in goods, services and monetary donations,

“Guitars ‘N’ Cars donations provide one-third of the operating budget of Midtown Terrace and over 500 veterans living there are dependent on our assistance” said Gordon Clunn, HCIC founder. “In 2018, our mission is bigger than ever as we launch Vision 2025, with a pledge to replace Midtown Terrace altogether and provide a much- needed new facility for our Houston area veterans. All levels of participation in this event will contribute to the fulfillment of this pledge and help change lives.”
