As many as 600 motorcycles, vintage cars, boats, planes and military vehicles will be showcased at the Cutrano Rods & Haws Charity Car Party from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 1 at WestWorld of Scottsdale.

The event is free to attend.

“If you can ride it, drive it, race it or fly it, we’ll have it on display,” stated Cutrano AZ Troop Run President Aaron Cutrano, in a press release. “We’ve had amazing support from individuals, business owners, classic car and bike enthusiasts, and so many others, which has allowed us to move to a larger venue and expand this event to include just about anything with two wheels, four wheels or propellers.”

Now in its third year, Rods & Hawgs will feature more than eight acres of family-friendly activities, including a Kids Zone, food trucks and live music.

Event organizers are aiming to raise $10,000 for the educational needs of the children of Arizona-based military service men and women who have been killed during Middle East conflicts, the release stated.

“We hope to help the children of fallen heroes continue their education. It’s our honor to be part of supporting the educational dreams these parents had for their children,” Mr. Cutrano stated in the release.

Sponsors for the 2015 event include Fast-Trac Designs, Raked Magazine, Financial Security Group of AZ, Kids R Kool Pediatric Dentistry, AZ Tech Roofing, National Automotive Repair, Heavy Metal Television, Premier Graphics, and Scott Waste Services.

Vehicle registrations, vendors and sponsorships are still being accepted. For details about costs and applications, visit the event website.
