East Texas Crisis Center Auto & Cycle Show
Prothro, Wilhelmi & Co. was honored to volunteer at this year’s 2019 East Texas Auto and Cycle Show held February 15th-17th benefitting the East Texas Crisis Center in Tyler, Texas. Each year this show features a wide range of classic, antique and specialty cars, trucks and motorcycles of every decade.
From humble beginnings in 1991 the first show and car raffle raised $20,000 and this year the show and car raffle generated approximately $173,000. Tyler Ford has donated a raffle car for the past sixteen years and this year’s 1962 Thunderbird Roadster Convertible, generated $73,300 from $10 raffle ticket sales. This revenue helps support emergency shelter and crisis intervention services for victims of family violence and sexual assault.
