Well folks, if you live in the San Diego area and had the opportunity to attend the Run to the Hills Car Show, held at Barona Casino on Saturday, August 19th, you will know what a roaring success the show was!...
We ended up with over 300 cars, both classic and later models, lots of Harleys, antique bikes, cars rebuilt from the ground up by our local high school kids, vendors from all corners of San Diego County...and then there was the public...what a turn out!!!
We had just under 200 pre registerants and all together, and the people kept coming...by the busloads, carloads, and bikeloads!
Participant cars and bikes filled the parking lot to capacity and then some...they just kept coming...right up till closing time!
We had over 500 raffle prizes worth over $15,000!!
And we had a $450 50/50 prize...it was great! We havent got a final tally yet as to how much money we raised for our charity...Mountain Empire Men's Club. This charity provides scholarships for the underpriveledged children of the Mountain Empire School District.
