Union sets date for charity car and motorcycle show
EVERETT — The annual Bill Baker Memorial Steel & Wheel SuperShow is coming to Everett again this year.
Along with displays of custom cars and cycles, there will be food and live music.
Check-in for exhibitors will be from 8 to 9:30 a.m. on Aug. 15. Registration costs $25 on the day of the event, or $20 in advance. Registration forms are available at all District 751 union halls around Puget Sound.
Last year’s show drew more than 50 entries and raised more than $9,300 for charity.
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 Guide Dogs of America’s No. 1 fundraiser across North America. Over the past six years, union volunteers have raised nearly $1.8 million for the charity.
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 33,000 working men and women at 51 employers across Washington and California.
