REDDING, Calif. - Kool April Nites is not only about classic cars. With $1 million brought in by the event over its long-run, some track students got brand new gear this year.

The week-long car show has raised $1 million dollars in its over 30-year run and all that money is staying right in the town where the show got its start.

"We are going to push it over $1 million dollars this year. We are at $950,000 - close to - and we all feel that it's going over a million dollars this year," said Debra Fox, the President of Kool April Nites.

This year, the car show, which is known for its classics, has donated funds to the local Boulder Creek Elementary School.

"I got to use the amount for a very nice pit you see here because the other one we had was about 15 years old and it was a hand me down," said the school's track coach, Erleedawn Eoff.

The new pit, which was completely paid for, was courtesy of Kool April Nites, along with a 3D-printer for the science department.

"It's actually huge because with the little school that we are, there is not a lot of funds for athletics and it was a nice thing because it would have taken us a long time for us to fundraise for this," Eoff said.

"So now, having something that is the same as the other meets, gives the kids a lot more advantage of doing better," Eoff went on to say.

July began on a seasonably hot note for northern California with plenty of sunshine, and fortunately very little wind. We'll have a minor cooling trend through Friday before more heat arrives for the holiday weekend.
