DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
This event is held in September each year and should have been the 7th annual event in 2021, but due to COVID the 2020 event did not happen. The CHP Foundation will be hosting the 6th Annual Cops & Rodders Show & Shine, Car Show and Fly-in event at the Cameron Park Air Park.

The volunteer leadership works directly with the El Dorado Community Foundation to ascertain the identities of local organizations that are in the immediate need for funds.

· $1,150 to the Cameron Park Airport District
· $500 to EDHS Interact Club
· $500 to EDHS Culin...
