*For Immediate Release*
Bring you cars! Bring your family! And don’t forget to come hungry! We are thrilled to announce our first annual Drive For Independence Upshift Summer Bash. This year’s event will be held at Leg Up Farm, 4880 N Sherman Street Ext, Mt Wolf, PA 17347, on Saturday August 16 from 10am-4pm. It is a car show, food truck and vendor event. There will be plenty of beautiful cars, several food trucks to tempt your taste buds, plenty of vendors to pique your interest, and DJ-T1 to keep the party going. The Upshift Summer Bash is a fundraiser for Chris Sauerbaum and his need for a wheelchair accessible vehicle. He has had his driver’s license for 10 years now without a vehicle to drive. We are working towards a $10,000.00 down payment on a Mobility SVM Chevrolet Silverado. We are currently at $8,000.00 and hope to reach our goal with the Upshift Summer Bash. Ride-Away Wheelchair Vehicles will be bringing a Mobility SVM vehicle to showcase what we are fundraising for.
Did someone mention food trucks?! Of course we did! We will have Bountiful Feast, Scoops Ice Cream and Grille, Smoothie King York, PA, Spectrum Farm to Truck, and Sophie’s Italian Ice to fill your bellies and cool you down. We also have vendors for all your shopping needs! Favorite direct sales companies and home crafters will be on hand to satisfy your shopping fun. The car show can accommodate up to 100 vehicles in the car show field. Cars, trucks and motor cycles are welcome. Pre-register your vehicle by visiting: https://driveforindependence.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/upshift-summer-bash-car-show-registration/. Pre-registration is only $10.00 while the day of the show registration is $15.00. We will have 1st-3rd custom trophies designed by Chris Sauerbaum, himself, for the show field that will be judged by your fellow car show participants. There will also be a People’s Choice voted on by the general public. Chris is definitely showcasing his graphic design abilities with this show. There will also be an event photographer on hand and you will be able to get a photo of your car at the event. Donations from photos will go to YAFCA, a local community organization (www.facebook.com/YAFCA.org). We will also have a silent auctions with items up for bid such as A York Revolution Prize pack that contains 4 ticket vouchers, SnS Croftgate car care items, $100 in free Web design, and massage gift certificates and many more! We will also have activities for the kids including the large barrier-free playground!
We hope to bring you this event bigger and better in the future as we turn our efforts to begin our 501(c) charity efforts with Drive For Independence. We would like to take everything we have learned fundraising for Christopher Sauerbaum’s Wheelchair accessible truck and help others in a similar situation needing accessible transportation for work.
