The inaugural Sobrato FFA Car Show was a resounding success on May 20, with 113 classic cars entered and more than $4,000 raised for the local high school’s chapter of the Future Farmers of America, according to Sobrato High School Agriculture teacher Kayla Erath.
The event took place in the parking lot of Ann Sobrato High School on Burnett Avenue. The festivities included a classic car show as well as a silent auction and food trucks.
Proceeds from the event will go directly to the Sobrato FFA chapter, which includes more than 530 Sobrato students. The funds will help pay for leadership conference travel around the state and support student competition teams—such as Ag Mechanics, Vet Science, Floriculture and Dairy Judging—and pay for supplies for classes and other student events, Erath said.
“We are extremely happy that this event went well and loved being able to see the community come together to support our youth,” said Erath, who is already looking forward to the second annual Sobrato FFA Car Show in spring of 2024.
