A downtown hot rod event earned $6,463 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Douglas County.
Last fall, the Rev It Up! Hot Rod Hullabaloo was held in South Park. The show, which was free to the public, had more than 220 hot rods, custom cars, classic cars and motorcycles. More than 600 people attended. The event also featured live bands, food and arts-and-crafts booths.
Money collected from car registrations, food sales and vendor fees were donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters. The organization supports youth-based mentoring programs, reaching 500 children each year.
The Rev It Up! Hot Rod Hullabaloo will be held again in October as a benefit for Big Brothers Big Sisters.
