LACONIA — The Lakes Region Rotary Club has announced that O'Reilly Auto Parts has signed-on for a second year in a row as Presenting Sponsor of the Lakes Region Rotary Car Show, to be held Saturday, July 25 at Faro Italian Grille in Weirs Beach.
Lakes Region Rotary's first two shows proved enormously successful, welcoming more than 150 vehicles in 2013 and 200 in 2014, in addition to nearly 1,000 spectators -- raising over $10,000 each year for local charities.
Several local non-profit organizations will benefit from the 2015 Lakes Region Rotary Car Show. This year's featured charity is Camp Resilience, a local program that brings wounded warriors and injured first responders to the Lakes Region to recover their physical, mental and emotional well-being. Program leaders consult with Veteran's Association staff to thoughtfully select individuals who have endured serious injuries or conditions including limb amputation, traumatic brain injuries, and post-traumatic stress, and might benefit from this opportunity.
Three to five-day sessions take place several times throughout the year here in the Lakes Region. Small groups of 8-15 participants are trained on life skills including: how to effectively communicate in order to build stronger familial and community relationships; resume, job search and interview strategies; and financial management. Certain sessions may focus on sleep management or healthy living; an upcoming session in June will incorporate Equine Therapy.
Camp Resilience is a non-profit organization run by the Patriot Resilient Leader Institute. The program relies on donations and grants to succeed, and each session runs over $5,000. Lakes Region Rotary members are honored to help out by raising funds through their upcoming Car Show.
"O'Reilly Auto Parts has been a great partner to the Lakes Region Rotary these past couple of years," states Lakes Region Rotary President Scott Wilkinson. "Their support as Presenting Sponsor of the Car Show will go a long way in helping Camp Resilience and several other important charities in the Lakes Region to thrive. We're proud to partner with O'Reilly, and with the Camp Resilience program."
O'Reilly Auto Parts recently signed-on as the $2500 Presenting Sponsor of the Lakes Region Rotary Car Show, to be held on Saturday, July 25th at Faro Italian Grille in the Weirs. Proceeds will benefit several local organizations including featured charity Camp Resilience, a local program that helps wounded warriors and injured first responders to recover their physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
