NorCal Road Gypsies raise money for Hospice

On Sunday July 17, The NorCal Road Gypsies held their annual Summer Show and Shine Car Show at Clearwater Lodge by Pit 1. This year’s show had 82 entries featuring a dazzling display of classic cars.

Clearwater Lodge is located at Pit 1 just off Hwy 299 between Burney and Fall River Mills.

Most of the proceeds of the show will be donated to the Intermountain Hospice program. Funds were raised through registration fees, a silent auction, a 50/50 raffle, a table raffle, and a bean-bag toss.

Keith Earnest, Chief Clinical Officer at Mayers Memorial Hospital, said, “The point is hospice can not do the important work for the community without the help of the community.”

Hospice provides services for people who have been diagnosed with an incurable disease with a life-limiting prognosis. People who wish to contribute can also buy a memorial brick in honor of a loved one or friend. The brick, adorned with a bronze plaque would be placed in the Garden of Memories at the Intermountain Fairgrounds.

One of the volunteers who worked at the show estimated that the event brought in “around $4000.” Co-president of the NorCal Road Gypsies, Bob Eastburn, said that the exact amount that will be donated to Hospice could not be determined until they had paid expenses. According to Mountain Echo, last year’s show raised $2,750 for Hospice.

Here are some of the amazing cars that were at the show:
