Rotarians from Arizona’s oldest clubs fuel their service through one of southern Arizona’s largest auto shows: the Tucson Classics Car Show.
The fall tradition returns to Gregory School from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 16 after a 2020 hiatus due to COVID-19.
“This is our 15th edition of the Tucson Classics Car Show and every year we try to perfect it a little more. We hope to have a fabulous day with over 400 fantastic cars and hope to raise at least $ 250,000 for the benefit of Pima JTED, our centenary beneficiary, ”said Joni Condit, president of the event.
