Summer Salute Annual Car Show and Event 2014
May 24, 2014
Classic Chevys of Reno Car Club has teamed up with The Veterans Guest House, Operations Feedback, and KOH Radio to create a charity-focused Memorial Day weekend event called Summer Salute, which is a fund raising event to benefit our Veterans. The first annual Summer Salute event held on the grass at Rancho San Rafael Park in 2013 was a tremendous success.
With more than 400 cars entered in the show, and approximately 1000 participants and spectators, Summer Salute is now the largest car show event in Northern Nevada, next to Hot August Nights.
All net proceeds from the Summer Salute car show event stay locally with donations to The Veterans Guest House and Operation Feedback, which is a food bank for active and retired Veterans and their families. This Veterans fund- raising event is made possible with the generous support from major sponsors including Champion Chevrolet, Summit Racing Equipment, Gilson Autobody, Greg’s Garage, Hot August Nights, Deals and Wheels, KOH Radio, KTVN Channel 2 and dozens of other businesses in our community.
In addition to a car show open to all years, makes, and models of cars and trucks, the Summer Salute event features military displays, a raffle of dozens of excellent donated items, as well as a silent auction for a very large number of special items. There are also vendors of varying types, including those who provide car related products, hand-made crafts, and delectable treats. A variety of food vendors are also on-site at the event.
In conjunction with the car show, KOH Radio and Operation Feedback will again be conducting an area-wide food drive that will start in the days prior to the Summer Salute event, and will culminate with a live on-site KOH Radio broadcast from their remote Mobil Command Center vehicle.
Summer Salute is well on its way to becoming a “must attend” event on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend every year. If you would like to support our Veterans by becoming a major sponsor, be a vendor, sponsor a trophy, or donate a quality raffle item, contact Summer Salute Chairman Tom McNeill at (775) 425-6866 or at
