HOTH Mission

2018 Honor Our Vets
Car and Motorcycle Show

Albany, New York - 08-05-18

ABOUT THE MISSION:

The Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapters 8 and 79 are proud to present the 2018 Honor Our Vets Car and Motorcycle Show at the Stratton VAMC in Albany, and have requested PGR presence to help support this most worthwhile cause.

In the past, funds raised by the Car Show have been used to purchase much-needed, non-government-funded items such as blanket warmers for use by Chemotherapy patients, clothing for indigent veterans, large screen TV’s in therapy wards, outings for hospitalized veterans and much more.

Proceeds of more than $70,000.00 from past shows have been donated to the Voluntary Services Office at the facility, making this still the largest contribution from a single day event. ALL of the proceeds from this event are used to help improve the quality of life for the active duty soldiers and veterans treated at the Stratton VAMC, and gives those veterans the opportunity to participate in the judging of the vehicles.

This year, the Car Show has been expanded to include motorcycles and promises to be better than ever.
