Hot Rods for a Cause - Benefit for Domestic Violence
Rep. Karen Awana has been involved with “Hot Rods for a Cause” for several years. It's a group formed to help prevent domestic violence, and they will hold their annual event next month featuring a Car Show, Swap Meet and rides in conjunction with informational booths promoting education and awareness of the domestic violence issue. Proceeds will go to the Domestic Violence Action Center.
WHEN: Sunday, July 11, 2010
9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
WHERE: Kalaeloa Airport between Hangars 110 and 111
Members of various car and motorcycle clubs around Oahu, some of whom have family members injured or killed in domestic violence incidents, have joined together to raise money for domestic violence awareness.
The event, which draws thousands, will feature a Car Show with entries from all car clubs with custom cars, trucks, and bikes. There will be food, music, rides, and swap meet vendors.
“My involvement with this event started through a request to help find a location, but it quickly grew into a cause that will help to save lives,” said Rep. Karen Awana. “So many families in my district are impacted by domestic violence, and this is one way that we can get people to realize how important it is to stop the violence that starts in our own homes.”
