Currently Sponsoring: Rotary Club of Lancaster’s Wings & Wheels Festival and 5k
The Rotary Club of Lancaster is getting ready to host their 4th annual Wheels & Wings and 5k Festival! After taking a year off due to the pandemic, flyers, drivers, and runners alike are keen to get out and show some support for this nonprofit. On July 24th, the Lancaster Airport will host vendors, live music, food trucks, and of course participants to raise money to go towards programs for Lancaster County youth. These programs aim to prevent the “summer slide” by teaching kids academic, social, and leadership skills. After a year of online classes and staying safe inside, we hope that more kids will be reached than ever with these programs. The last event raised almost $21,000! The Rotary Club along with the United Way of Lancaster took this to award grants to other nonprofits, like the Lancaster Science Factory, Community Action Partnership, and SWAN. These grants directly assisted 776 Lancaster city students in summer learning and club participation.
Ville Painters is a Gold Wheel Sponsor, donating $1250 to this year’s drive. Even though we are a small professional painter’s business, community action is important to us. We strive to find new, fun ways to give back to the community and with our President being a Rotary Club member, we were more than happy to have this opportunity. We have participated in previous years as well, shown below was the 2018 car show Steve participated in.
If you would like to be a part of this one of a kind festival, there are multiple ways to participate. Most importantly, this is a free event to the public to come and enjoy! If you’re looking to get active, sign up to run or walk for the 5k, starting at 7:30am. Got a cool set of wheels to show off? Enter in the car show where trophies will be awarded. Even if you don’t have the time but would like to give back, you can donate to this event or to the Rotary Club of Lancaster Foundation.
