CHESTERFIELD, VA – With the increasing need of adaption of vehicles and homes for our newly injured veterans and our long standing members, the Paralyzed Veterans of America Mid-Atlantic Chapter will feature hundreds of the top custom automobiles and bikes from all over the country at the “Beyond the Call of Duty” Car, Truck, & Bike Show on October 18th 2014 at the Mobility Supercenter of Virginia located at 7450 Midlothian Turnpike, Richmond, Virginia 23225.
“The main focus of this event is to give back to those who have greatly sacrificed their lives and bodies for our freedom,” said event coordinator Justin Spurlock who is paralyzed from a car accident and continues to raise money for others in a similar situations as him. “I’m thrilled the PVA trust me to pull off an epic event for our country’s paralyzed veterans. Proceeds from this event will fund the PVA’s Accessible Independence Program, which helps fund the purchase of van lifts, hand controls, and also assists with installation of ramps, widening doorways throughout the home of a disabled veteran.
Spectators will have the opportunity to not only get a chance to take a “selfie” with their favorite automobile, but enjoy the great barbecue from Devil Dog Grill, on site military personnel demonstrating proper equipment maintenance, an all-out kids zone powered by Kona Ice, 2 guest DJ’s to play your favorite tunes from the 1950’s thru to the 2000’s, and modified vehicle demonstrations and test drives by the Mobility Supercenter of Virginia. Show goers will also have a chance to vote for their top 5 vehicles and the winners will receive the “People’s Choice Award”.
“When I plan a show I make sure everyone leaves happy and tired, My last show “Roll with Mike”, which raised enough money to purchase an accessible vehicle for the Marshall Family, had cars coming from as far as Wisconsin, and with a total of over 800 cars entering the show, I’m going all in for these guys,” said Spurlock.
Being that this is the first car show the PVA has hosted, the feedback from sponsorship and donations is phenomenal. The show has landed a few big name sponsors in the automotive industry such as Borla Exhaust, Odyssey Battery, and, Lucas Oil, not to mention sponsorships from local businesses such Self Made Kustoms, Superior Autoworks, and Legends Brewery. “With the collaboration of top automotive companies and local business backing this event there’s no telling what you’ll see at this event, and at every event there’s always a surprise I keep from everyone, only way to see is at the show”, said Spurlock.
Automobiles, history, and enthusiast go hand and hand. We all love a beautiful paint job and a nice sounding engine, but when you combine the machines, the people, and the memories; you have created a car show. A show that will put memories in a youngsters mind on what he wants his first car to look like, while granddad sets his eyes on an old 57 and reminisces on moonshine runs.
Registration ($25 – spectators free) will be the day of the event, pre-registration can be found at ( http://pvamidatlantic.org/beyond-the-call-of-duty-car-show/ ), and as an incentive the first 100 to pre-register online will receive a free “Beyond The Call of Duty” decal.
