The Mid Valley Chevy Club was founded years ago, but incorporated in 2013 as a 501(c)(7), non profit organization social club. The purpose of the club was established for the enjoyment and restoration of classic automobiles by its memebers, dedicated to the following:
- To promote and participate in car related events sponsored by community organizations, car clubs, or individuals promoting a charitable cause as related to the restoration and preservation of pre-1975 vehicles or pre-1990 limited productions:
- To raise funds at the car related events via contributions from business groups, corporations, foundations, and individuals at large, who wish to contribute to further the purposes of this Corporation:
- To distribute those collected funds, not necessary to the operations of the Corporation, to a nonprofit fund, foundation, or corporation which is organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes and which has established its tax exempt status under Section 501)c)(3) of the internal revenue code; and
- To undertake other projects, programs, and activities consistent with Sectgion 501(c)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 or any successor code as the need to do so presents itself in the opinion of the Board.
In keeping with its incorporation policy and its proud tradition, the Mid Valley Chevy Club annually supports all Valley area car shows with both sponsorship and participation by its members. The Club also hosts four free car shows, called "ParknShine" shows including, American Chevrolet, Vintage Fair Mall, Graffiti Downtown Event, and Cool Hand Lukes, all leading up to the Graffiti Parade and Graffiti Festival weekend sponsored by the North Modesto Kiwanis Club. Mid Valley Chevy is proudly instrumental in assisting the staging and organization of cars downtown at the Graffiti Festival Parade, and maintains its own location for its members at the Graffiti Festival Car Show.
Mid Valley Chevy Club also supports local community service locations with member car displays that have included Bethel Retirement Village, Childtime Daycare Center, Modesto, Graffiti Dogs Grand Opening, Shelter Cove Church Car Show, homecoming vehicles for Modesto Christian High School, and the Marine "Toys for Tots" drive at Regal Theater, Modesto, and many others over past years. The Club continues to search for new ways to help and serve the community through self developed and manned car events.
As a Mid Valley Chevy Club member, the Club has several committees that plan events including car tour events to points of interest, valley car shows, and hosts fun events annually honoring our Executive Board Changeover Breakfast in January, an Ice Cream Social in July, the Club Anniversary Brunch in October, and finally, our annual Christmas Party which has been held the past few years at Del Rio Country Club.
