On Sunday, June 5, 2022, the Rotary Club of Glendale held it’s 5th Annual Cars for Cops & Kids Car Show. The event was supported by dozens of local businesses and helped raise over $61,000 for at-risk youth and mental health programs in the city of Glendale.
The event drew over 240 cars to the green grass of Verdugo Park and attendees were treated to gourmet burgers, pizza, and ice cold beer. Children enjoyed a rock wall and various games throughout the park. The Police and Fire chiefs were there along with dozens of officers and firefighters to mingle with the crowds and enjoy the beautiful day with the community.
State Sentator Anthony Portantino, Mayor Ardy Kassakian, and Assemblywoman Paula Devine were there among other city dignitaries to meet and greet with their constituents. Special guests Steven and Armik Aghakhanian brought their GT race car and the crowds were treated to hearing the roar of the powerful engine.
In the end, the car show really is about the cars and once again it drew some extremely rare and exotic cars from all over Southern California.
Event chair Edwin Voskanian said it best:
“We are so thankful to our sponsors including Pacific BMW, 3B Auto Brokers and Glendale Adventist, thankful to all the car registrants and lastly all the Rotarians of the Glendale Rotary Noon Club who contributed to this year‘s massive success!”
