The annual Installation Banquet serves as the venue where we thank our association's outgoing board members and welcome those who have been newly elected. It is also the setting in which we announce the newest selections for the SEMA Hall of Fame whose inductees represent not only our industry's history but also its members' dedication, service and devotion to their businesses.
About this product:
More than 500 members of the industry attended the SEMA Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser in Pasadena, California, August 1, to honor 2009 SEMA Hall of Fame inductees Bill Perry, Rolan “Jeep” Worthan and Henry “Smokey” Yunick and to raise money for children’s charities Childhelp and Victory Junction Gang Camp. They also came to thank members for their service on the SEMA Board of Directors as well as welcome new members to the Board.
About this product:
Each of the programs and benefits offered by SEMA is spawned by individuals who imagine a better way of doing things. More often than not, those creative thinkers are members of the SEMA Board of Directors—volunteers who give of their time, energy and vision to help guide and grow the automotive specialty-equipment industry. While these people come from diverse demographic backgrounds in every segment of the marketplace, all share a passion for business and a desire to see the people and companies that make up the association succeed and prosper. While they may not always agree completely with one another, they share a respect for their peers and the notion that multiple minds can find solutions where a single mind may not.
Nothing brings together the specialty-equipment community more than when industry leaders and pioneers are honored, charitable causes are served, cars are displayed and peers have the opportunity to compete against each other in the ultimate drag race.
The SEMA Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser is a time of
celebration and giving.
The annual SEMA Cares Pinewood Drag Races will be held at the Installation & Gala. To sponsor a car and help a great cause, purchase a pinewood vehicle today. Proceeds from the Installation & Gala and Pinewood Drag Races will benefit various SEMA Cares Charities.
Service takes many forms. Every company in the specialty-equipment
industry benefits from those who give their time, skill and energy to
help SEMA businesses thrive and prosper.
