Who Is Jim Taylor?
Jim Taylor is the former CEO and Chairman of Taylor Made Group--A company specializing in canvas products (for boats, awnings, etc.).
He is an avid automobile and automobile memorabilia collector who graciously opens up his "garage" to select groups. The Twin Rivers Council has been fortunate to hold our annual fundraising event with him for the past several years.
What is the Taylor Car Show?
The Taylor Car Show is an annual fundraising event to support the Scouts and Scouting programs in the local area.
The event is held for two nights allowing for more guests to enjoy the 30,000 square foot space. Jim gives a tour of the automobiles and memorabilia, sharing stories from his experiences collecting and road rallying his cars. Guests can follow along or can tour the collection on their own.
An Italian dinner of lasagna, salad, and pizza from House of Pizza and a variety of libations, coffee, tea, soda and water are provided.
How does this help Scouting?
Our Council is reliant on external methods for the funds used to run our programs and support our Scouts.
Our main methods of fundraising comes from investment income, friends and family donations, grants, products sales, camp revenue, and fundraising events.
Without these sources, we aren't able to fully support the needs of our program. Especially after COVID-19, a year in which many of our sources of income were canceled, we need support now more than ever.
With your participation in this and/or any other of our fundraising events, we are able to do more for or Scouts, including providing financial assistance to Scout families, offering support staff, providing a support facility, maintaining our camp facilities, and providing membership materials to the units.
We appreciate your interest in this event and your support of local Scouting!
