VW event to benefit Rescue Mission
Wendy Alexander/The Madera Tribune Hundreds of VWs were on display during the annual Madera VW Spring Fling on April 30. A VW event is scheduled for August to benefit the Madera Rescue Mission.
Fans of classic Volkswagen vehicles will have the chance to enjoy admiring the Bugs, as they are known to those who love them, and also to help the Madera Rescue Mission.
According to spokesman Paul Yocum, Feed the Bug Volkswagen Weekend is an ongoing celebration that brings people to Madera from all over the world. From Mexico City, Australia and even Germany, contestants have traveled to compete and shop at this event.
The show, No. 8 in a series, will be held at Lions Town and Country Park.
The Deutschlanders VW club gathers food and othere items for the Madera Rescue Mission and puts them into a VW bug. The items then are donated to the Rescue Mission. Also donated are all the monies from car show entries.
“Last year’s campout was safe and a great family time,” according to Yocum. “The Madera City Council recognized our Feed the Bug show for an outstanding job for bringing in cash and people to the city of Madera and for all the cash and food that the club donates to the Rescue Mission.”
