Auto club, sponsors, help local charities

On behalf of the Tappet Twirlers Automobile Club I would like to thank all of our sponsors for our Friday night cruise-ins at St. John’s Church and also our car show. Money and canned goods are donated to the Rome Rescue Mission. We raised over $1,000 for the mission. Proceeds from our show went to the Golisano’s Children’s Hospital in Syracuse this past November. We donated $1,800 with the Rite Aid distribution center’s help. Without our sponsors’ support, these donations could not have taken place.
