2017 VW Car Show Donation

North Bay Air Cooled, Vacaville Volkswagen, and Skinner Classics raise money for a good cause!

On September 10th, North Bay Air Cooled held its first annual VW car show at Vacaville Volkswagen.  The show was an amazing success with 102 registered cars showing!  Over 40 handmade trophies given away, as well as $2,500 in cash prizes for “Best in show”, “2nd Place”, and “People’s Choice”.

This show was a fundraiser for the Vacaville Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club. Today, we were able to present the Vacaville Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club with a check for $5,159.69!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated, and sponsored this event.  We are looking forward to raising even more money next year for this amazing organization!

2017 Car Show Donation

Vacaville Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club  – http://www.vnbgc.com/
When the bell rings, schools are out but the Vacaville Neighborhood Boys and Girls Clubs (VNBGC) are in. Unfortunately, 1/3 of Vacaville’s kids have no place to go leaving them at risk of being unsupervised, unguided, and unsafe. The definition of “at risk” is no longer defined as just low income or underserved youths. We know all too well that children in middle and upper income families deal with just as many social and personal issues.

Ensuring a safe, productive place for kids to spend out-of-school time is vital. Their goal at The Vacaville Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club is to inspire youth to believe in themselves and to enhance their lives through the programs brought to them by their compassionate staff. VNBGC provide Vacaville’s youth with life-changing programs that develop a desire for learning and believe that every young person deserves a great future.
