Mi Vida car show

Car buffs show off their vehicles in last year's benefit exhibition hosted by the Yuma County chapter of Mi Vida Car Club. The show takes place again Saturday.

Mi Vida Car Club will showcase classic cars, motorcycles, bicycles and other modes of transportation Saturday in downtown Yuma to benefit a local family in need.

The third annual show takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Main Street.

The show is free to the public, but a registration fee will be charged those wishing to show a vehicle. The fee for entries of cars and motorcycles is $20 before the show and $25 the day of the event. The fee for bicycles is $15 before the show or $20 on Saturday

“As with every year, we have a show to help families,” said George Raygoza, treasurer of the Yuma County chapter of Mi Vida. “We bring in cars, bicycles, pedal cars from within or outside the club, and we raise funds that are given to families that have lost a home in situations like fires, or where someone in the family is sick.”

Plaques will be given out to the three cars judged as best in each category, with an overall first-place prize also awarded, he added.

Raygoza said people do not have to be members of Mi Vida to enter the competition.

He said funds from Saturday’s show will be given to a family that will be selected in January or February.

“In this time of year there are always families that lose a house or a trailer because of a fire, or they have someone in the home who is sick and needs help. We choose a family when we find out about its situation in the newspaper or other media, and we give them the assistance.”
