Bruster's of Culpeper, VA Inaugural Cruise 4-23-2016
Some of our group was onsite when we arrived in Culpeper around 3PM….then everything went into a blurred crash mode for me till I came up for air to take pictures around 5PM. Everyone helped to park cars, erect the Fisher House canopy, help the DJ and generally try to accommodate the cruisers as they began to show up. Kim & Rick led a crew of the Fredericksburg Classic and Muscle Car Club members to our event….a whole bunch of FC&MCC cruisers that drove 35 miles one way! Then Kim & Crystal volunteered to run the 50/50 for us because we didn’t think to appoint someone for that task and we really didn’t know how to do it…. Kim & Crystal do a superb job of running their 50/50 at their Friday night cruise in Fredericksburg and they brought the same enthusiasm and purpose to our cruise’s 50/50. They collected $165….and later in the evening the winner gave their half back for Fisher House Foundation! We made $90 for Fisher House donations and we still have a % of the event’s business proceeds from Bruster’s to receive….a good afternoon for The Fisher House Foundation. We also had the opportunity to explain to a couple people what the Fisher House is and what they do for our Veterans and their families….this is the most important long range thing we do at these events….raise awareness about Fisher House.
