The Vintage Car Club (VCC) of Castle Rock is proud to have supported a variety of charities over the years through donations made by the club. The majority of VCC’s revenue for donations is generated from two annual car shows the group hosts. The largest is the Classic Rock Cruise In Car Show held in June the Saturday before Father’s Day in downtown Castle Rock, CO that brings in over 300 classic cars and trucks for the car show.  Hot Rods in The Park Car Show is a smaller more intimate car show with about 100 classic cars and trucks held in August (moved from Castle Pines Village to Larkspur Community Park, Larkspur, CO in 2024).  The entry fees collected from the car shows goes through the Vintage Car Club of Castle Rock to supporting various local charities. 

The Club manages a student scholarship program and makes available Automotive Technology Scholarships to senior students located in Douglas County or Elbert County that have access to automotive related skills classes and planning to attend a college or trade school in Colorado pursuing a certification or degree in the automotive industry.

The scholarship program is designed to help selected senior students build a successful career and rewarding life in the automotive field.  Each year, VCC determines a scholarship amount to be awarded and partners with Douglas County High School, Ponderosa High School, and Elizabeth High School.  The VCC approved application and review process is managed by the Vintage Car Club.  The students applying for the scholarship must be (1) in good standing with their high school, (2) have maintained passing grades, (3) plans to register for college or trade school in Colorado during the next fall or spring semester following high school graduation, and (4) submits an essay addressing the following two questions – “Why do you want this scholarship?” and “Why do you want to be involved in the automotive industry?”  The students are selected prior to graduation and are recognized by VCC during the award presentation at the Classic Rock Cruise In Car Show in Castle Rock in June.  The awarded scholarship funding is sent directly to the college or trade school to be applied towards the tuition costs of the selected students. In 2022, Chip Foose supported the Club’s scholarship program by congratulating the two scholarship recipients. In 2022 and 2023, the Vintage Car Club partnered with Wheel Pros and donated $20,000 towards four separate $5,000 scholarships.
