The Council Cup is just one event representing SEMA's charitable efforts to benefit two worthwhile organizations that have become favorites of SEMA-member companies—Childhelp and the Victory Junction Gang Camp.

This year, the association included charitable fundraising activities in conjunction with its traditional SEMA Installation Banquet to form the SEMA Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser. Proceeds from the gala event will be contributed to two organizations. For information on the event and activities, visit
