Rotary Club to hold car show fundraiser
The Rotary Club of Tucson hopes that fundraising for local charities will be fast and furious at the ninth annual Tucson Classics Car Show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17 at The Gregory School, 3231 N. Craycroft Road.
About 225 Rotarians will combine forces with friends, family and other volunteers to stage the one-day event, which has raised more than $750,000 since its inception.
“It is remarkable. We are averaging just under $100,000 a year and are hoping to do even better than that this year. One of our hopes is to nudge up toward the $1 million mark this year so our 10th anniversary would be a $1 million show. We have some great charities with Reading Seed, Youth On Their Own, the El Rio Foundation, the YWCA of Southern Arizona and Imago Dei Middle School. They are doing good work and that makes it fun to get out and work hard on their behalf,” said Roger Harwell, president of Rotary Club of Tucson.
