2017 Car & Bike Show

Sunday, June 11, 2017 10:30 am

The Local 701 Annual Car and Bike Show was held on Sunday, June 11, 2017 at 10:30 am. This year, like last year, we decided to hold the event on a Sunday to make it easier for our members and their families to attend. We also added a family picnic with the Car and Bike Show. Food and refreshments was served and prizes for 1st through 3rd place was awarded to both the Car and Motorcycle classifications. This year's event drew a record crowd. We had over 45 cars entering the competition and over 15 motorcycles (and one John Deere tractor). The weather was perfect. Russ Gittlen, Director of Guide Dogs of America, was in attendance to thank Local 701 for the event as we were able to raise over $1,100 for our favorite charity - Guide Dogs of America. We also had representatives from Wells Fargo and the Union Plus Program offering information for our members. There was face painting and a balloon artist for the kids. It was a great event that continues to grow each year!

This year's winners for the cars were:

1st Place - Jim Lecroy with his 1957 Olds 98

2nd Place - Mike Arvis with his 1966 Chevy Chevelle

3rd Place - this year we had a tie -
Kevin Zizzo with his 1962 Chevy Impala and Steve Star with his 2009 Ford Mustang

This year's winners for the bikes were:

1st Place - Steven Geiger with his 2004 FLH

2nd Place - Don Ingratta with his 2016 Fat Boy

3rd Place - Arturo Marin with his 2002 Suzuki
