Center hosts Poor Boy Car Club show

CENTER — The seventh annual classic Poorboy Car Club show will be held at the Center Schools parking lot Saturday July 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The show, with its old-school camaraderie and homemade trophies, has become a popular event in Center.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. Richard, Tony and Bill Garcia are sponsoring the show. “If you are proud of it and love to show it, come to our show,” the Garcias said.

Gate entry for the event is $30 with a $5 fee for each additional entry. Admission is free for the public.

The burnout competition will be held again this year by popular request and will begin at 11 a.m. The competition will be held across the canal at the old Pepper warehouse parking lot.

The show is open to all makes and models of any era or year, including motorcycles, trucks, rat rods, tractors or work-in-progress. A discount will be offered at the gate for those bringing new friends to the show.

Live entertainment will be provided and vendors will be on the school premises. The awards ceremony will begin at 2 p.m.

Proceeds from the show are given each year to worthy causes in the Valley and elsewhere. Previous individuals and organizations receiving Poorboy funds include St. Francis Jerome Church, the Reyes Casias leukemia fund, Shirley Sierra, the Jazmin Vasquez fund and St. Jude’s Hospital in Denver.
