The Sin City Mini Club (of Las Vegas of course) got together for some good clean fun while raising over $5 grand for the SAFE House Domestic Violence Shelter.
A good time was had by all. All 500 of them. That’s – at least – how many MINIs showed up to support the SAFE House Domestic Violence Shelter fund-raiser in Henderson, Nevada… and all of them were unique.
There were MINIs with hydraulics, MINIs with suicide doors, low rider MINIs and custom paint and body kits by the score. Sin City Mini Club President Agro Ross, who brought his bright orange 1978 Mini, said the endless possibilities for customizing and personalizing a Mini is what draws people to them.
Henderson Mayor James B. Gibson, who was invited to help present the checks, recognized the car owners for their dedication to their cars and to the community. "The mission of SAFE House is something that can't be duplicated by government," Gibson said. "We really appreciate the great load that you are lifting from all of us."
"I think that our first year has been a huge success," SAFE House Executive Director Julie Proctor said. "I think we're going to get bigger every year we do it. With the economy being the way it is, it's just phenomenal to see this kind of community support."
To the larger point, she continued, "Not only are we raising some money, but we're raising awareness of the issue of domestic violence and the services we provide."
