"Look, you work your side of the street and I'll work mine"
These are the words of Frank Bullitt as portrayed by iconoclastic actor Steve McQueen in the movie "Bullitt". This year, McQueen's celebrated role in the film will be honored as cars, motorcycles and fans converge on June 2, 2012 at the campus of The Boys Republic of Chino Hills to celebrate the fifth annual Steve McQueen Car Show.
This year's festivities will also feature the International Mustang Bullitt Owners Club as they create awareness and promote the event with a cross-country drive across Route 66 beginning in Chicago and culminating with participation in the June 2 show
Attracting enthusiasts from throughout the United States, attendees will have an opportunity to get into the chase on Friday, June 1 at The Bullitt Dinner, which will include guest speakers from the movie. The fete will begin with a reception from 5:00 to 6:30, dinner from 6:30 to 7:30 with the program beginning at 7:30. Tickets are $100.00 per person and can be purchased at www.boysrepublic.org.
Established in 2008 by members and friends of the Porsche 356 Club of Southern California, the focus of the annual event is to raise funds for the Boys Republic, a private, non-profit, nonsectarian community for at-risk teens, a community McQueen was a member of as a 16-year old student in 1946.
Since it's start in 2008, the gathering has raised over $135,000 as well as donations of skilled labor and building materials through the Lowe's Hero's community improvement project valued at more than $100,000.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Boys Republic, 1907 Boys Republic Drive, Chino Hills, CA. Parking is free and admission is $10.00 with children under 12 free. For those wishing to enter the car show, an entry fee of $50 is due with pre-registration by May 15.
