Start your engines and save the date for the Houston Construction Industry Charities' fifth annual fundraising extravaganza, the Guitars N' Cars Auto Show & VIP Benefit. Scheduled for Saturday, October 10th at the Sam Houston Race Park, this big Houston family event is all about classic cars, vintage guitars and veterans, with funds raised once again benefiting U.S.VETS-Houston.

The event kicks off at 2pm on Saturday, October 10th with the Guitars N' Cars Auto Show, which is open to the public and runs until 6pm, showcasing American classics, exotics, hot rods, muscle machines and cars galore. It's a rain or shine, family-friendly gathering, with live music and a free kids zone, featuring boxcar derby races, a sand pit, bounce houses and games. The Guitars N' Cars VIP Benefit, from 6-10 pm, is an adult-only celebration, with live music, a presentation of some of the rarest and most historic guitar collections in the country, courtesy of Fuller's Guitar, silent and live auctions and dinner and a "Top 40" display of celebrated motorcars.
Houston Construction Industry Charities was founded four years ago, with a mission to unite local construction industry resources in support of area veterans; helping with housing, job placement and the general daily needs of over 500 veterans. Since then, the 501c3 non-profit has built a much needed state of the art commercial kitchen at Mid Town Terrace (2012-2013), purchased a dedicated passenger van (2014) and donated $65,000 directly to the Houston U.S. Vets program (2014). Over one million dollars in goods, services and monetary donations has been raised in the process, with organizers hoping to donate a further $75,000 to the program this year, through ticket sales, sponsorship, vehicle registrations and auction proceeds.

General admission to the Auto Show is $10 for adults and $5 for children (or free with a donated item from the needs list). Car entry registration in the Auto Show is $25. Tickets to the evening Guitars N' Cars VIP Benefit are $50.
