Press Release – For Immediate Release
Grand Junction, Colorado – IntelliTec College held their second annual Car Show and Expo on April 28th. Approximately 500 attendees enjoyed such highlights as the honoring of the National Guard. Around 25 cars ranging from brand new models to classics, muscle cars and rock crawlers entered the judging. Each academic department featured an exhibit, demonstration or giveaway. Money was raised for local charities and an on-site bone-marrow drive was held.
Guardsmen from 3 local military units stood up to accept plaques, made by Snyder Memorial and presented by IntelliTec College, to honor their military service. In addition, each military serviceman and woman was presented with a certificate of appreciation for their service. Dean of Students Shelby Maloney says that “the event provided a wonderful opportunity for the staff, faculty and students of IntelliTec College to thank the brave men and women who honor us each day in their selfless pursuit and protection of our freedoms.”
Each program provided tours and demonstrations throughout the day. Massage therapy students provided free chair massages, medical assisting staff performed dissections, dental technicians demonstrated cleanings, and automotive program trainers set up a demonstration of the inner workings of vehicle electronics and fuel systems.
Though the event was free to the public, there were plenty of opportunities for attendees to give back by providing voluntary donations. A collection can posted at the free food table raised about $115 for the local 4-H Club. There was also a bone marrow drive where people could register to save a life by becoming donors.
The Student Ambassadors Club, which provided face painting and a dunk tank, raised approximately $250 for their charitable operations. Shelby Maloney explains that “these funds are slated to buy food and basic necessities to start their new “Food for Friends” program on campus, which provides either gift cards or a bag of nonperishable items to students in need once a month.” The AMT Club also gave their time to charity by playing host to representatives from “the House”, a local resource for homeless teens.[boilerplate about-grand-junction]
