Summer Nites Kool Kars for Charity
Turlock, California - August 30th, 2002


    This Friday Night in Turlock was a bit different. A special Car Show was put together by 6 Rodders with the purpose to specifically help a fellow rodder. Normally, it takes months of work to put together a show from getting the location to securing the last raffle item. Ahhhh, but not this group of 6 rodders.... What they came up with in a little over 3 weeks would make most any annual car event committee shake their heads.
The location of the show was Kenny's Rod Shop

www.kennysrodshop.com

    Kenny's Rod Shop is located on East Hawkeye in Turlock. He had plenty of room for rods. The area adjacent to his shop buildings was cleared and laid out with white lines to make parking an easy thing. He has a small lawn area in front of his shop, so the raffle area was set up on that. And what a raffle, it went on all evening long, with a silent auction for a number of items being the crowning touch. A custom painted (by Custom Concepts, Hughson CA) peddle car was auctioned off for I believe $475.00. There was no doubt that the area merchants supported this cause.
   Part of the entry fee included 2 BBQ tickets and they definitely were used. The BBQ line was a long one and lasted for quite some time. One nice thing was the fact that it was not a typical scorcher of a day here in the Valley. Instead it was a perfect day and evening for a show.
    The charity purpose of the event was even nicer when it was found that the person it was intended for didn't really know it was done with him in mind. He actually came in his rod, and tried to park along with the other rods as they came in. He was then told to move to a different location. So that's pretty much how he learned of the purpose of the event.
    From the turn out of rods, Gene (MC) told everyone over the PA system that there were approx 150 rods registered with around 10 no shows, you get the feeling that these rodders do care when it comes right down to it.
    So make plans to attend next years show when scheduled, for now though, please enjoy the photo set from the First Summer Nites Kool Kars for Charity Car Show...
