CHICO, Calif. - Regardless of the smoky skies in Chico, it didn’t stop dozens of Chico residents from visiting the Chico Elks Lodge for the 15th annual “Hot August Day” Car Show Saturday afternoon.

More than 150 classic cars drove behind the lodge so they could be on full display.

Spectators could eat hamburgers, enter a raffle once they made a donation and just enjoy the smoky view.

Action News Now spoke to the organizer who says he’s an advocate for the future.

“We really want to try to encourage through our contributions and support for young people to go into the automotive industry. Because as a society we need automobile technicians and there’s a real problem in that area,” said Bruce Norlie, director of Sierra View Region of Vintage Chevrolet Club of America.

The donations made, also go to other charities such as the Butte County Sheriff’s K9 Unit, the Chico Museum and much more.
