Review for Volunteers for Veterans Foundation, Fontana, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am on a Committee that has raised over $1,200,000.00 for our Vets in Loma Linda V.A. hospital in the last 19 years. It started with one man's dream on helping our Veterans in the Jerry L. Pettis Memorial Veterans Hospital in Loma Linda and has grown the this: This year October 3, 2010 will be our 20th year. I was thinking if you could take a look at some of our info on the Internet and if you like what you see, how a one day Car Show can raise $ 300,000.00. And have a great time doing it. October 2009 LOMA LINDA, Calif. - - The Annual Veterans’ Car Show will celebrate its 19th year on Sunday, Oct. 4 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Jerry L. Pettis Memorial VA Medical Center in Loma Linda. All proceeds from the show will benefit patient care programs at the VA medical center. Over 1200 custom vehicles are expected in the parking lots of the medical center located at 11201 Benton St. The Veterans’ Car Show also features auto-related vendors and displays, drawings, bingo, pancake breakfast, music, refreshments and veteran benefit information that will make the day a fun filled event for the entire family. The winner of a 1967 Camaro Convertible will be drawn on show day. Spectator admission is free. Originally conceived by deceased Vietnam Veteran Mike Wilburn, the Veterans’ Car Show has become the largest single fundraising event at the medical center. This is my Experienc,Our Committee spends every weekend going out to Car shows and selling Tickets to the Give away Car all year long. We are not just talking a few people we are talking a committee of 25 that takes turns on each and every weekend that our Give Away car goes out. We are committed to making this October 3dr 2010 Show the best. It a great feeling to know you are doing something good for someone who fought for our Freedom. Both of my Young Adult sons volunteer with me as much as they can. My wife is right next to me each and every time.
