***One UPDATE…DC Prime has a hard stop at 5pm to switch to a private event, so we’ll be moving the raffle up by 30 minutes and wrapping things up a tad earlier. Tweak your burgers, beers, and free stuff calendar accordingly! 🙂 ***
Hellllllloooo good people! The turnouts this season have been incredible thus far! To make sure we can handle and accommodate all you petrolheads we’re heading back to DC Prime which brings PRIME food, PRIME drinks and PRIME parking for all the crew!
As we did last year at DC Prime in July we are again going to be collecting items for FOHA_VA (Friends of Homeless Animals), a local shelter that survives solely on donations. For the last two years, we’ve filled 2 truck beds FULL of donations (including 2600 lbs of food collected last year!!!) and we’d like to help out this worthy organization again! They take all kinds of donations including dog and cat food, toys, bedding, etc…more info on www.FOHA.org and below for specifics.
Donation not required for entry but all things are appreciated! Check out the post in the discussion for pics of the trucks last year!
We’re working on special food and drink deals just for us, so come check it out! As always we’ll be having our Free.99 raffle…bring a cool ride, get a free ticket, win cool stuff! And also as always, everyone is welcome…if it’s cool, bring it out! More exciting details in the coming days! Exclamation points!!
