The rain sure put a damper on one local event in Chico on Saturday. Local Vietnam veterans from chapter 582 held their 13th annual car show at the Elks Lodge. This is their biggest fundraiser they host each year but due to the rain they had fewer people show up than previous years. More than 70 show cars and 14 venders participated which this less than half that showed last year. According to Butch Frederickson president of the veteran chapter 582 of butte county, he has been putting this fundraiser on since they started 13-years ago and this is the very first year it has rained the day of the event.
All the money from the fundraiser goes to veterans and their families who are in need of food, medical attention or money for bills to help them get back on their feet.
