Thanks to all for great charity drive

As a committee member of the annual Arlington Dragstrip Reunion &Car Show, the Port Gardner Vintage Auto Club would like to thank all of you that made this annual event such a success for our local charities. The 10th annual event was held Sept. 14 at the Arlington Ultra Light Air Strip and the following people made it all possible:

The car show registrants, the generous Arlington area merchants for trophies and raffle items, the multitude of spectators paying to appreciate all the beautiful entries, including the dragsters, and of course the many volunteers that make it all happen! We also were fortunate to have a variety of vendors, both food and merchandise, to round out our car show.

We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who helped us raise our annual funds that we distribute to local area groups. Groups that have benefited from the past included: Arlington Boys &Girls club, Animal Rescue Foundation, Burned Children Recovery Foundation, Cocoon House, North Everett and Cascade Boys &Girls Clubs, Open Door Foundation, area Food Banks, and Marysville-Pilchuck High School’s Automotive Class.

We would like to encourage everyone to support your local communities and their merchants as they are always generous donors to these fund-raising events for your community!
