Rodgers Chevrolet Hosts Camaro Show To Benefit Wounded Warrior Project

WOODHAVEN, Michigan Rodgers Chevrolet expects one of its biggest crowds ever at its 7th annual Chevrolet Camaro Car Show on May 9.

The show will benefit the Wounded Warriors Project.

The dealership believes it will capture excited muscle-car owners as they gather for a celebration of the May 16 launch of the sixth-generation 2016 Camaro on Belle Isle in Detroit, Angela Osborne, customer service specialist at Rodgers, told Edmunds.

It also marks the first time the dealership is donating the proceeds from its bake sale and silent auction to the Wounded Warriors. It raised $5,000 for Relay for Life last year.

"Everyone likes to rally around soldiers and cars," Osborne said.

More than 150 Camaro and muscle-car owners are expected to register to win one of several trophies up for grabs.

The food, bounce house, face painting, car registration and music are all free.

There will be engine music as well, as Rodgers Chevy is bringing in the dyno to gauge a car's horsepower.

The showroom will be hopping, Osborne said.

"A lot of cars are sold that day, especially Camaros, and often guests drive up their old Camaro to trade it in for a newer model," she said.

Osborne added: "We like giving back to the community and with all the activities we have, it reminds our neighbors that we're here and it piques their interest."

Edmunds says: Just a little local preview of the even bigger Camaro event set for next weekend.
