Car enthusiasts and hot rodders will get a chance to show off their pride and joy while helping local veterans during the Second Annual Cruise-in for the Veterans car show on May 11.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Volunteer Services group at the Bob Stump VA Medical Center in Prescott.

Chino Valley's Mike Tobey, one of the event organizers, said he's hoping for an increase over past year's 300-plus entries to the show, which will take place in the Frontier Village parking lot at 1841 Highway 69 in Prescott.

"Volunteer Services is a great organization," Tobey said. "They take care of the patients at the hospital, providing blankets, cards, flowers, even taking them out for exercise and some conversation. This service takes money to run and they're not funded by the VA."

Tobey said the organization also provides counseling to veterans, something from which he also has benefited.

"There are a lot of veterans in need. The VA takes care of their health issues, but many of these guys don't have any family close by," said Tobey. "At one point I lost five members of my family in about six months - my sister, my dad, a couple of aunts - and they really helped me. They treat us with respect and that goes a long way. This is a way for all of us to give a little back."

The show is open to all types of vehicles, including cars, trucks, and motorcycles. The fee to enter a vehicle is $35; admission to the show is free.

Tobey said many local businesses have donated items both for raffle prizes and a silent auction, including Lone Spur Café, Network Automotive Service Center, Bob's C.A.R., Lamb Chevrolet, Prescott Auto Body, and Prescott Tire Pros & Service Center.

The show will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For more information or to donate raffle prize items and services, call 928-713-0978 or email
