San Diego, CA to The Villages, FL - Supporting America’s Heroes, One Mile at a Time, The Drive for Veterans is a cross-country fundraising trip to provide support and awareness for wounded American veterans. Columbia ParCar, the proud organizing sponsor of the Drive for Veterans, is using a convoy of zero-emission, low-speed electric vehicles to drive from California to Florida over approximately 45 days. Participants will stop along the way to raise funds for the Fisher House Foundation and the Semper Fi Fund/America’s Fund, two organizations dedicated to providing needed resources and financial support to injured members of the Armed Forces and their families.
The Drive for Veterans will have our official kick-off celebration at Tuna Harbor Park, in San Diego on Saturday October 19, 2013, from Noon to 4 p.m.. Chris Boyer of the DSC Morning Show and 100.7 Jack FM radio station will join the Drive for Veterans at Tuna Park and will be playing music and giving away prizes off their Jack Prize Wheel. Come out and spin the wheel for a chance to win Blu-Ray Movies, DVD’s, Books, CD’s, T-Shirts, and so much more!
The group will have the vehicles on display and their staff will be talking with all visitors about the Drive and asking for their support. This event is open to the public and all are encouraged to come out and show their support!
