EVENT DATE: Jul 11, 2015
We want to change the view of the general public on what kind of "people" cruisers are. We are not bad people, we just all have a hobby that we love. A few seem to ruin it for the rest of us, so lets have the rest of us show the community that we are good people, and that we are here to help the community by donating money and canned/boxed food items to local charities.

- * First Meet Summary *
- Date: Friday - June 5th, 2015
- Location: Sturdevant's Parking lot by Wal-Mart (west side)
- Event Started @ 8pm
- Event Ended @ 11pm
Donation money raised: $211
Food+Canned Items Raised: Over 70 boxes crackers, 1 box ramen noodles, over 30 canned food items.
Charity donated to: Sanford's Children Hospital
The event went as planned, turn out was around 70-100 people. We met up around 8pm, and we cruised the loop around 9pm. The donation truck unfortunately broke down at BP, so we had to bring it home early -- the event continued on until about 11pm.
The donation money was unfortunately stolen from Nick's truck while he was asleep, but him being the good person he is -- donated $225 out of his own pocket, which was actually $19 more than the donation money that was taken. You can rest secure knowing that the money you donate WILL goto charity.
Goals for next meet: Have more money and canned/boxed food items to donate to charity, we hit the $200 level, lets see if we surpass that at the next even coming up on July 11th, 2015.
Thank you to all who made this first meet a great success!
