Sharing Larry OÕs passion for cars
Submitted By Ed Rivera
Local senior citizens will be proudly displaying classic and custom cars, trucks and hot rods from the 1920s to 1970s at the third annual ÒLarry ÔOÕ Car ShowÓ on Saturday, August 8 at Ruggieri Senior Center in Union City.
Formerly known as ÒA Hot August Day,Ó the annual car show was renamed to honor Union CityÕs own Larry Orozco, a former supervisor for Union City Leisure Services who worked for the department for over 30 years. Among his contributions to the community include creating the Union City Teen Work program and Bike Shop located in the Decoto District, supervising Ruggieri Senior Center and creating many of the long-standing programs that it offers for seniors, and supervising the Kennedy Community Center and all of its programs.
Other car show activities include raffle drawings and prizes, food and vendor booths, bounce house and face painting for kids, fundraiser BBQ, and a custom bicycle show. Billy London & the Lucky Dice will play live music for a genuine Rockabilly experience. Union City Mayor Carol Dutra-Vernaci will attend to present raffle prizes. Admission is free at this family-friendly event.
The Larry "O" Car Show is accepting pre-registration for vehicles. The cost is $20 per vehicle which includes a T-shirt. Car owners may register on the event day depending on availability, so please arrive early. There are only 50 spaces available.
The event is sponsored by Union City Leisure Services. All proceeds benefit Ruggieri Senior Center. For additional information, call the senior center at (510) 675-5495.
