Update, From Jim, 7/3/2015: This group travels to enjoy our cars-Get recognition and most of all the pride to say I have done this for our Veterans.
To me driving Pintos to support the Wounded Warrior organization is most important. Pinto Stampede founded by Norm Bagi chose WWP as the charity for our group. We have raised over $30,000 since 2011.

Every year I donate a gun for us to sell raffle tickets to help reach our goal. This year I donated a Kimber 380 Concealed Carry Stainless Pistol. The Winner can get the gun or $500 cash. Tickets cost $10 each-3 for $20 or 10 for $50. I will have the tickets with me when I travel. I can mail these to anyone and encourage EVERYONE in our group sell tickets. Please contact me and I will see to it that you get some to sell. The drawing is Veterans day 2015 (Nov 11).
