The show, characterized by a $10 entry fee, succeeded in raising approximately $1,500. A significant portion of the proceeds is earmarked for the Putnam County Food Pantry, though the exact amount is yet to be determined.

An “If it rolls, it shows” committee orchestrated the event, aiming to support the Putnam County Food Bank. Given its success, plans are already in the pipeline to make the vehicle show an annual affair.
