MONTE VISTA — The Poor Boy Car Club and the OptiMystics Citizen Action Network put on their first-ever South Central Colorado Micro Brew Festival and Car Show in Monte Vista and due to its success donated nearly $5,000 to the Veterans Homelake Center.

This was the 10th year the Poor Boy Car Club has raised money to benefit the Homelake Veterans Center. The OptiMystics donated $500, and the Poor Boy Car Club donated $4,000. A check was presented to Homelake Officials on Thursday, Sept. 9.

The Aug. 21 event was a success, drawing crowds of people from all over The San Luis Valley, according to organizers. The car show had more than 80 vehicles and the festival had various food trucks, liquor vendors, and many booths available for kids and adults alike.

One of the highlights of the festival was the car parade at the Homelake Veterans Center. There were at least 60 cars that participated.
