The annual car show sponsored in May by the Tracy Clutch Burners Car Club generated $3,000 for two local nonprofit agencies.
A check for $1,500 was presented Saturday, Oct. 5, in front of Tracy City Hall to Tracy Interfaith Ministries by Mike Conners, Clutch Burners president. He handed the check to John Day and Linda Gleason, representing the multi-denominational agency that provides emergency food and clothing.
Conners said a second check for $1,500 will be presented to a representative of Hospice of San Joaquin at the next Clutch Burners meeting, Monday, Oct. 14, at Perko’s Café, 1321 W. 11th St.
The Clutch Burners Car Club was organized in the 1950s by high school students and has remained active for enthusiasts of vintage and restored vehicles. The club meets the second Monday of each month at Perko’s.
