Members in Southern California Invited to Craft Pinewood Cars With Children in Need, June 5

By Ashley Reyes

Pinewood
Pinewood Build Day is an opportunity for the industry to
meet and connect with the children by helping them
decorate and race pinewood race cars.

Members in Southern California are invited to volunteer at the SEMA Cares Pinewood Build Day, Saturday, June 5, from 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. at the Childhelp Village in Beaumont, California.

As one of the designated charities of SEMA Cares, Childhelp treats as many as 84 abused, neglected and at-risk children at its Southern California residential facility. SEMA Cares Pinewood Build Day is an opportunity for the industry to meet and connect with the children by helping them decorate and race pinewood race cars. For many of the children who have endured great hardship, the event is an entertaining activity that allows them to have fun and brings a smile to their faces. Each child will receive and decorate two pinewoods—one to keep and the other to donate. Donated cars will be available for purchase at the SEMA Installation & Gala, and all proceeds will benefit SEMA Cares charities.

The Pinewood Build Day is ideal for anyone who may have a few hours to help make a difference in the lives of children in need. SEMA members are encouraged to bring their families to this special day, as it is fun way to get the whole family involved in giving back and helping others.

Lunch will be included. Please RSVP to Lindsay Bianco at lindsayb@sema.org or 909-978-6692.
