On Saturday, May 4th, several hundred Jeep enthusiasts, as well as families and vendors, came together for Midwest Jeepfest at John Vance Auto Group in Guthrie. The event was free, but a donation of just two dollars to God’s Food Bank was recommended. The event raised almost $7,000 with John Vance Auto Group presenting a check for $6,476.07 last Friday.
“We are really proud to be a part of Midwest Jeepfest and it is our honor to raise almost $7,000 for God’s Food Bank. We couldn’t name a more worthy cause. Thank you to everyone who made this possible,” said Megan Vance vice president of John Vance Auto Group.
According to Doug Cramer, God’s Food Bank Board President, $2.40 will feed a family of four for one week. This donation represents over 2,900 meals for families for a week.
“We want to thank John Vance Auto Group. This represents a huge part of money we need to operate. This is a huge donation,” said Cramer.
