Steel & Wheel show raises $7,800 for Guide Dogs

EVERETT — The annual Bill Baker Memorial Steel & Wheel SuperShow raised more than $7,800 for charity.

CarShow1More than 40 vehicles were entered in the annual classic car, hot rod and motorcycle show, which was sponsored by Machinists Union Local Lodge 751-A, and was held on Aug. 15 at the union’s Everett union hall.

“Our volunteers work hard every year to make sure this event is a success,” said Local 751-A President Les Mullen. “Thanks to them and our sponsors, we had a fun day and raised some money for a good cause.”

All proceeds are going to 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 Machinists Union District Lodge 751, which is the No. 1 fundraiser for the charity. Over the past six years, union volunteers have raised nearly $1.8 million for Guide Dogs of America.

Originally formed in 1935 by 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 woman at 52 employers across Washington and California.
