SEMA CARES 2017

WHAT IS SEMA CARES?

The SEMA Cares Committee, established by the SEMA Board of Directors in 2007, aims to bring the voice and resources of the SEMA community together to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

The SEMA Cares Committee fundraising efforts include the SEMA Cares Pinewood Drag Races at the SEMA Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser and custom industry-built vehicles such as the 2016 Omix-ADA sponsored Jeep that was auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson Auction.

Fundraising efforts will benefit various SEMA Cares charities.
