On June 25th, OPERATION: COME H.O.M.E., along with Woodside Bible Church - Troy Veterans and Military Ministry, hosted its 1st Annual Veterans Benefit Car Show - Vets, Corvettes & Other Classics. Co-sponsors, Greg Thomas, Ram's Horn of Rochester Hills and LTC (ret) Rob Ells, Roush Enterprises of Livonia, MI helped create the success it was by generously providing the much appreciated and required funding and marketing support needed to put on such an event. The event received a vast amount of attention via newspaper articles, advertisements, radio spots and even two separate local news station, Channel 7 interviews.
Along with Co-host, Woodside Bible Church - Troy Veterans and Military Ministry, OPERATION: COME H.O.M.E. was blessed by dozens of volunteers to help set up, register show cars, cook, inform guests, etc. while Pastor Vince Messina, Woodside Bible Church Congregational Care Pastor and Dan Broihan, OPERATION: COME H.O.M.E. Executive Director were able to meet many of the show car owners as well as spectators that wanted to see some real Detroit Muscle and support our Veterans.
With the success and excitement that this first show provided, this event is destined to become an annual favorite while helping fund the future of Veteran housing in the Metro Detroit Area!
Thanks to all who participated!
