Homeless Houston Veterans to Benefit at the Ninth Annual Guitars N' Cars Auto Show


Houston. September 12, 2019.  Start your engines and save the date for the ninth annual fundraising extravaganza, the Guitars N' Cars Auto Show. Scheduled for Saturday, October 26th at the Sam Houston Race Park, this big Houston family event celebrates classic cars, vintage guitars, live music and most importantly, our local veterans, with funds directly benefiting U.S.VETS — Houston.

The Guitars N' Cars Auto Show kicks off at 12 p.m. and runs until 6 p.m., showcasing American classics, exotics, hot rods, muscle machines, cars, trucks and motorcycles galore. It's a rain or shine, family-friendly gathering, with live music, vendors, silent auction, food trucks and a kid’s zone.

Guitars N’ Cars was founded and presented by Houston Construction Industry Charities (HCIC), and the Clunn family in 2011, to bring the Houston community together to support U.S.VETS — Houston, the largest nonprofit serving homeless veterans in our community. Each year, U.S.VETS — Houston serves more than 500 veterans per day. Today, Guitars N’ Cars serves as U.S.VETS — Houston’s main annual fundraiser and HCIC now consists of hundreds of dedicated volunteers, united in one cause ensuring that no man or woman who served our country is left sleeping on our Houston streets.

“Houston Construction Industries Charities has generously donated $1,546,327 to U.SVETS — Houston for homeless veterans,” said Executive Director of U.S.VETS — Houston Oudrey Hervey, Commander, USN (Ret.). “Here in Houston we have the nation’s second-largest concentration of homeless veterans, with numbers increasing as our population ages. We thank Houston Construction Industry Charities, Clunn Acoustical Systems, the entire Clunn family, the generous community volunteers and the Guitars N' Cars Committee for nine years of service to our veterans.”

“By continuing to support Guitars N' Cars, you are taking a stand to help ensure that our veterans successfully transition into civilian life. They fought for our country, our liberties, and our freedom. The least we can do is fight for them and give them the unwavering support they deserve. While we are proud of our past contributions to U.S.VETS — Houston, we look forward to many more years of continued success for this great Houston event,” said Gordon Clunn.

All makes, models and years of vehicle are welcome, with move-in from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Vehicle registration is $25 and available online or onsite day of.
