Military members, families, and classic cars all make way to Joplin’s Golden Corral in honor of Four State veterans.
Car Buddies Cruises and Golden Corral hosted the 9th Annual Crusin’ For The Vets car show.
Proceeds from dining inside, along with vehicle registration, go directly to local veterans in Joplin and the surrounding communities.
This money helps offset food and traveling costs when making doctor visits.
With cars flooding into the parking lot this morning, organizers had to open registration an hour earlier.
“And the community support and all the love that they show because these men and women … It’s not about these cars, it’s not about the trophies that they give, but they are the biggest trophy of all and we’re so glad and honored that we can help them.” says Max Hill, Car Buddies Cruises Founding Member
Because this car show has gained such a large following, Hill says he needed to ask for more parking lot space to fit everyone wanting to attend.
