Cen­tral Utah Vet­er­ans Home holds Vet­er­ans Car Show, Cruise in Payson


This year, the Cen­tral Utah Vet­er­ans Home Car Show and Cruise in Payson was a fundraiser for the Cen­tral Utah Vet­er­ans Home Santa Zone. At the Santa Zone, the vet­er­ans are able to se­lect a few dif­fer­ent pur­chased and do­nated gifts to then be wrapped and shipped to their loved ones.

This event brings a lot of smiles and hap­pi­ness dur­ing the Christ­mas sea­son to all of the fam­i­lies of the res­i­dents at the vet­er­ans home. This year, the car show raised thou­sands of dol­lars to put to­ward the Santa Zone to help our na­tion’s hero’s give Christ­mas gifts to their loved ones.

The Vet­er­ans Car show was a huge suc­cess this year due to of all the com­mu­nity spon­sors, vol­un­teers and staff at the Cen­tral Utah Vet­er­ans Home. Eathan Gog­nia was a huge part of this year’s show. He vol­un­teered his time do­ing an Eagle Scout Project to help ad­ver­tise and raise funds for the car show. Eathan and his Scout troup spent hours go­ing to lo­cal busi­nesses, other car shows and all around the com­mu­nity hand­ing out fly­ers and in­for­ma­tion about the show. Other big sup­port­ers were the staff at the Cen­tral Utah Vet­er­ans Home and many lo­cal busi­nesses; Lo­cal Ched­dar, Lulu’s Craft Cor­ner, Ar­row­head Up­hol­stery, Utah Av­enue In­sur­ance, the Provo Elks Lodge, Serve Daily and the Payson Chron­i­cle were very help­ful in re­cruit­ing and ad­ver­tis­ing and help­ing the show be such a great suc­cess.

The 2016 Cen­tral Utah Vet­er­ans Home Car Show had thou­sands of peo­ple in at­ten­dance from the com­mu­nity and ap­prox­i­mately 110 clas­sic cars on dis­play. It also had the sup­port of more than 30 lo­cal busi­nesses that pro­vided car­ni­val booths, games, ac­tiv­i­ties, prizes and treats for ev­ery­one.

The vet­er­ans were all smiles through­out the day from the cruise around Lin­coln Beach to dunk­ing Chris Baird in the Serve Daily Dunk Booth.

We want give a spe­cial thanks to ev­ery­one who gave so much time and ef­fort to this great event and showed sup­port our na­tion’s he­roes and their fam­i­lies.

The sec­ond an­nual Cen­tral Utah Vet­er­ans Home Car Show and Cruise in Payson was a big suc­cess, with thou­sands at­tend­ing.
