Here comes our exciting “Sweet 16” Car Show so get ready and get involved! The Rotary Club of Tucson has raised over $2.2M to support local charities focused on literacy, education, development of job skills, and senior assistance. This year’s proceeds will be no different as we support JTED and the fabulous programs they produce for Tucson students, with this year having a special emphasis on their Medical component.
Our signature event will hopefully host over 20,000 guests, feature a field of 420 gorgeous Classic Cars, have three cars worth over $1M each, and have plenty of tasty food and drink to go along with a full array of vendors and great music. We will wrap the day up with prizes for our incredible top cars, 5 prizes for lucky winners, and one ecstatic person who will win the Classiest Raffle Car we’ve had yet, a 2015 C7 Shark Grey Convertible Corvette. With only ten days to go, we are excited to share all of the plans and hard work that will come to fruition on Saturday October 15th at 10:00 am. on The Gregory School field. Come to hear all of the opportunities to be a vital part of this fun event that includes setting up the field on Friday, October14th, the always fun Friday Night Dinner, the fantastic day of show, and the camaraderie of the clean up on Sunday morning.
And don’t forget at our October 5th Club Meeting we will have a fun smaller Silent Auction to raise a few extra dollars for JTED and get the lucky winners some delicious wines from Jerry Harris or a couple of other “surprise” gifts!
