2023 marked the Second Annual Cruise-In Car Show charity event, which took place on July 29th.
I’ve been a part of this event since its very beginning, volunteering at the original Cruise-In Car Show. It’s truly impressive to see how the combined efforts of our team and the local community have turned this year’s event into a HUGE success!
Reflecting on the First Car Show
Back when we organized the first Cruise-In Car Show, things didn’t quite turn out as we had planned. With just 13 registered participants, the event didn’t have the impact we hoped for. Nonetheless, the experience was enjoyable. The modest turnout encouraged us to give it another shot, aiming to make improvements for the following year.
The Growth of Our Second Annual Cruise-In Car Show
Thankfully, our perseverance paid off. This time around, we garnered a total of 74 registered participants, with a few unregistered cruise-ins deciding to leave before the event concluded. We also witnessed a notable increase in spectator attendance. I was particularly thrilled to see some familiar faces from the previous year’s turnout returning to show their support for our second car show. To add to the excitement, Las Garnachas made a comeback, treating everyone to their delicious food. What’s even more gratifying is that our fundraising efforts saw a significant boost!
A Community Effort at the Heart of Our Success
None of our achievements would have been possible without the incredible support we received from our community. It’s truly heartwarming to express our sincere gratitude for your participation in the Second Annual Cruise-In Car Show Charity Event. With your backing, we managed to raise $3280. 100% of the proceeds will go to: Big Brothers Big Sisters of Snohomish County, the Boys and Girls Club, The Mill Creek Food Bank, and The Windermere Foundation.
Anticipating a Bright Future Together
Looking ahead, we’re excited about the prospects of sharing more memorable moments with our community. We’re already looking forward to the summer of 2024, when we’ll host our 3rd Annual Cruise-In Car Show Charity Event. Your continuous support means the world to us, and we extend our heartfelt appreciation to each and every one of you. Thank you for being a part of our journey! We hope to see you all again next year!
With sincere appreciation,
Windermere Mill Creek
