The Ninth Annual Bud Classic Car Show took place on Saturday, September 29 at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Fairfield. More than 5,000 people enjoyed activities that included 275 classic cars, live music, great food, a silent auction featuring Budweiser collectibles, a beer garden, and various vendors. The event helped raise $25,000 for the Families Helping Families Annual Thanksgiving Baskets of Hope event in November.
More than 200 volunteers met at the Fairfield brewery on the Saturday before Thanksgiving to prepare the Baskets of Hope. They helped pack and deliver 900 boxes of food, 300 turkeys, and 300 bags of potatoes to 300 needy families. In addition, 100 Safeway gift cards were mailed to local needy senior families.
Families Helping Families was founded 34 years ago by Anheuser-Busch employees at the brewery in Fairfield who wanted to give back to their community of Solano County by helping feed those less fortunate.
Families Helping Families would like to say a special thank you to the following:
Joint Council 7 – for their donation and use of the Teamster JC7 truck for the car show
Local 315 – for their donation of turkeys for Thanksgiving Baskets of Hope
Local 896 – for their sponsorship and Teamster booth at the car show
