The show’s net proceeds will benefit two charities:
1. “Families of the Wounded Fund”. This fund was created just for the purpose of uniting families during traumatic recovery periods. The Families of the Wounded Fund directs 100% of donations and the net proceeds from its events to assist families who come from across the nation to help their loved one’s heal at Hunter Holmes Mcguire VA Medical center Richmond Va. Several members of the New Kent Rotary have been to this facility and observed the needs of these young men and women. Having family close by for them is a real morale boost for them. We can help!
2. Funds received from a raffle and silent auction will be used to fund a community college scholarship for a New Kent High School Graduate working toward an Associate’s Degree in automotive mechanics or body work.

The 1960’s and 70’s saw American automakers become progressively more competitive in brute power and aggressive styling as they worked to surpass each other’s muscle car offerings.
