The Pennsylvania Outdoor Veterans organization raised more than $8,000 for veterans in need over the weekend thanks to the Wheels of Freedom event.
The Wheels of Freedom Car, Bike, & Truck Show, craft, and vendor fair was held at Palmerton Borough Park on Saturday, July 25th, showcasing a variety of vendors and an even larger variety of cars, bikes, and trucks, reported Times News.
The event was hosted by the Pennsylvania Outdoor Veterans organization, which was founded in 2015 by combat veteran Ryan Bowman. Their mission is to work outdoor recreational activities into the healing plan for traumatized veterans as a way to reduce the number of veteran suicides.
Cars as old as 1910 and as new as 2020 were entered in the show. Custom trophies were awarded to the winners of show categories such as “Best in Show,” “Best Interior,” and “Best Wheels & Rims.”
In addition to the car show, more than 4o vendors were there to sell their wares, 4 live bands played, and a chinese auction, raffles, and a 50/50 drawing were held.
