Holy Smoker raises $1,500 for City of Refuge
According to Archie Walker of the Trinity Lutheran men’s ministry, the second annual Holy Smoker Grill and Car show was a huge success.
“There were 45 vehicles on display in addition to the Town of Minden’s vintage fire truck,” organizers said in a press release. “In addition to the car show, Trinity’s men grilled Scolari’s tri tips for sandwiches for the onlookers.”
The Town of Gardnerville blocked off Douglas Avenue for the May 4 event so guests could safely walk around all the cars on display. The event raised more than $1,500 which will go toward completion of a guest house at Dave and Diane Gamble’s City of Refuge. The Douglas Alpine Chapter of Thrivent Financial also participated in the event, donating $300.
“The men of Trinity wish to thank the towns of Minden and Gardnerville for their participation as well as Thrivent Financial for their contribution,” organizers said. “Thanks also go to Archie Walker and Bruce Darling for their work in making this event so successful, and to Trinity’s Child Care Center and youth for their assistance.”
