Get geared up for the 33rd annual Willows Car and Bike Show.
Each year, the show raises money for a scholarship fund for Glenn County high school students, said Colleen Worthington, secretary treasurer of the show. They also donate to other local programs.
Over the last 10 years, Worthington said they’ve been able to donate $31,500 in scholarships and $16,500 in other donations.
Last year, they were able to donate $7,500 in scholarships and donated $2,500 to a program where the Glenn County Office of Education takes students to other states to look at colleges, Worthington said.
“Since we’ve been putting as much focus on the fact that we’re doing this for scholarships, we’ve had amazing sponsors,” she said. “We couldn’t do it without our sponsors.”
Once all of their expenses for supplies are covered, everything else goes into the scholarship fund, Worthington said.
This year’s show is in memory of Bob Pasero, Worthington said.
Pasero died last year. He served as a police officer in Orland and then as chief of police from 2004 until his retirement in 2010.
“He was just an all around good guy, great support of all of us,” Worthington said.
