The Motherlode Cruisers again packed Historic Main St. in Jackson for their annual vintage car show on May 18. This year’s event showcased painstakingly restored vintage cars, including roadsters, sedans, muscle cars and more. As in past years, this year’s event included vendor booth with arts & crafts, live music and a raffle, making it a day for the whole family.

Two checks were awarded from the club recently, in the amount of $5,000 each, to Hospice of Amador & Calaveras, and Tri-County Wildlife, the other recipient of this year’s show proceeds.

“Many of our members are older, and Hospice of Amador & Calaveras services have been used for some of our family members. We know they do a lot for the community and we try to give back to some organizations that sometimes get overlooked. We do what we can for the community and [Hospice] is really great.”

Hospice of Amador & Calaveras Executive Director Ariane Debien said, “Our agency is again blessed and honored to be named as a recipient in this fun event. These funds will go to patient care services and serve in a multitude of ways. We are excited and truly grateful for the support of the Motherlode Cruisers each year.”

Amador Community Foundation is proud to fiscally sponsor Motherlode Cruisers. Motherlode Cruisers is a vintage car club with members primarily based in Amador County and surrounding Sierra foothill communities. Their sponsorship of the annual vintage car show is held each year on the third Saturday in May.
