Tri-County Cruisers present donations to hospice, local charities
The Tri-County Cruisers Rod & Custom Car Club recently presented donations to area organizations as part of its mission to give back to the community. Funds were raised during their 17th annual car show, held Sept. 23 in Baden.
Paul Harris, club president, presented checks to guest recipients from area hospice organizations during the club’s Nov. 2 meeting. Recipients included Calvert Hospice, Hospice of St. Mary’s, Hospice of Charles County and Hospice of the Chesapeake Foundation. Additional checks were presented to Angel’s Watch in Charles County, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Custom and Classic Car Educational Foundation and the Baden Volunteer Fire Department (BVFD).
Donations were made possible through the participation of street rod, custom, antique and muscle car owners at the Sept. 23 show, as well as public attendance and donations from local businesses.
The Tri-County Cruisers showed its gratitude to the Baden Volunteer Fire Depart- ment with a presentation of a check to help pay down the cost of the Baden pumper tanker. The fire station is the location of the Tri-County Cruisers’ monthly meetings as well as the location of the club’s annual car show on the fire station’s ballfield.
