This will be the 6th Annual Cops & Rodders Show & Shine, Car Show and Fly-in event located on Boeing Ave in the Cameron Park Airport.
Prior to last year, the fees were minimal, $50 to $100, but last year they were told the fees would be approaching $1,000. It was with significant concern that their benefitting charitable organizations would be shorted some much needed funds, so they requested a fee waiver which was granted by the CAO for the 2019 event.

The balance of the funds raised will go to local organizations. Past recipients have been El Dorado High School, Ponderosa High School, El Dorado Food Bank and Tahoe Coalition for the Homeless. Some of these organizations assist the event with parking, and the culinery classes assist with food preparation for example. The CHP Foundation's volunteer leadership works directly with the El Dorado Community Foundation to ascertain the identities of local organizations that are in the most immediate need of funds.
The 2018 event raised $18,000, distributed as follows:

$500 to EDHS Interact Club
$500 to EDHS Culinary Arts Program
$500 to CHP Senior Volunteers, Area 245 (Placerville)
$5,000 to CAHP Widows and Orphans' Trust Fund (CA Highway Patrol)
$2,500 to Cente...
