Every year the Hurricane Valley Rotary Club hosts the show as a fund raiser to support the Rotary Club's many projects and causes Sariah Mortensen, Hurricane Valley Rotary Club president said.
Mortensen said the car show each year raises between $15,000 - $30,000. That money goes to fund local programs like the dictionaries each 3rd grader in the WCSD receives from the club. It also goes to support Rotary Club National and international programs, she said.These goals include: eradicating polio; helping to build schools; and get clean drinking water to underdeveloped countries.
Last year the car show attracted around 8,000 visitors, Mortensen said. The club expected similar numbers this year as well.
