A car show benefiting the Fallen Soldiers March is set for Saturday, July 9, in Lebanon.
The show is being coordinated by the newly established car club, The Good Wheel Cruisers (GWC). The GWC has hosted fund-raisers for various families and charities, all of which have been extremely successful. In the fall of 2015, the club raised over $30,000 to help toddler Braydon Brown get to the National Jewish Hospital in Denver for treatment of his severe eczema.
GWC President Tom Loftis said several of the club's over 90 members are veterans. This time, club members wanted to give back to those who served our country.
"We love our veterans. The government doesn't take care of them the way they should," he said.
Fallen Soldiers March is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization striving to dedicate 100 percent of donations to purchase trained service dogs for veterans.
"My goal is to raise enough to buy two service animals," Loftis said, noting the highly trained companions cost between $16,000 and $20,000 each.
The car show will be held at Snow White Drive-In, located at 1714 West Main Street in Lebanon. Registration will be held the morning of the event from 9 a.m. until noon. The entry fee is $20. Trophies will be given for Best of Show, Best Rat Rod, Best Ford, Best Chevy, Best Motorcycle and more.
