Hospice of Amador & Calaveras Receive Proceeds from Annual Car Show
JACKSON, CA —The Motherlode Cruisers again packed Historic Main St. in Jackson for their annual vintage car show on May 19. This year’s event included 180 painstakingly restored vintage cars, including roadsters, sedans, muscle cars and more. As in past years, this year’s event included vendor booth with arts and crafts, a beer garden, live music and a raffle, making it a day for the whole family.
On July 24, club spokesman Bret Risius awarded two checks in the amount of $3000 each, to Hospice of Amador & Calaveras, and Tri-County Wildlife, the other recipient of this year’s show proceeds.
“Many of our members are older, and Hospice of Amador & Calaveras services have been used for some of our family members. We know they do a lot for the community and we try to give back to some organizations that sometimes get overlooked. We do what we can for the community and [Hospice] is really great.”
Hospice of Amador & Calaveras Executive Director Ariane Debien said, “Our agency is honored to have been included in this fun event. We are truly grateful for the support of the Motherlode Cruisers!”
