Machinists plan charity custom car and cycle show
EVERETT — The Bill Baker Memorial Steel & Wheel SuperShow is coming back to Everett in August.
There will be live music and food during the show, along with displays of classic cars, hot rods and custom motorcycles.
Check-in for exhibitors will be from 8 to 9:30 a.m. The cost is $20 per vehicle if done in advance, or $25 on the day of the event. Pre-registration forms are available online and at all District 751 union halls in Puget Sound.
The car show is sponsored by Machinists Union Local Lodge 751-A and is a fundraiser for Guide Dogs of America, the California-based charity that provides service dogs and training in their use free of charge to people who are blind or have impaired vision from across the United States and Canada.
Local 751-A is affiliated with District 751, which is the top fundraiser for Guide Dogs of America. Over the past five years, the union has raised nearly $1.5 million for the charity, including a record $384,000 in 2013.
Originally formed in 1935 to represent hourly workers at the Boeing Co., District Lodge 751 of the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers now represents more than 32,000 working men and women at 50 employers across Washington, Oregon and California.
