The majority of our car show proceeds will be shared with 10 different charities at the end of our year, and they’re chosen from nominations from the members as to what should be on the list of eligibles. The top 10 vote-getting charities out of approximately 15 – 20 nominated will share in the funds to the tune of 10% of the total each. Being a North county club, we try to select those charities that would help out residents of our Northern wasteland here over the grade. Another consideration we make is to pass over larger charities who wouldn’t need our donation as much as smaller local ones would. Typically, we invite representatives from those selected organizations to come to our November meeting and we present the checks there, and we have the local press there as well to spread the word for us.
