Terry Home’s 25th Annual Show and Shine in August was a big success, bringing together many faithful supporters and classic vehicle enthusiasts. The event featured 120 registered vehicles that gleamed in the sun at Pacific Park, and many spectators came to view the impressive array of classic cars, trucks, motorcycles and more. Drivers were also enthused by the opportunity to celebrate a quarter of a century of successful Terry Home car shows with a kick-off cruise through Pacific, where the Show and Shine was held. The event raised $9,000 thanks to our supporters and sponsors for the event.
A big thank you to all who have supported this fundraiser, which has helped to ensure Terry Home can continue to provide excellent care to its residents. We have planned for some time that the 2017 Show and Shine would be our last in its current format; however, we are considering two scenarios for 2018. We MAY join Pacific Days the second weekend in July and/or there is a car club who MAY organize the car show which will benefit Terry Home. Stay tuned for more details in the next newsletter or on our website at www.terryhomeinc.org.
Terry Home President Myla Montgomery shares her thoughts about the Show and Shine’s transition: “This was an emotional year for all of us. In some respects, we were happy that this was our last car show and, in other respects, sad because this was our last one. We’ve come a long way from our first Show in 1993 when it was held at the Auburn Eagles Parking lot and there were so many years where we lucked out with unpredictable May weather. We kept saying that it never rained on car show weekend—and then it did. But our faithful supporters still came with their beautiful vehicles—wiping them off in between the rain. We can’t thank all of you enough for all the support over those 25 years. “
