Each summer, the Friends of Steve McQueen Car and Motorcycle Show brings thousands of spectators to the Boys Republic campus. This campus Steve McQueen spent his summers at a student in 1946. Since its start in 2008, the event has raised over $2,000,000 and attracts corporate interest from throughout the community. This has resulted in the donations of skilled labor and building materials through the Lowe’s Heroes community improvement project. The efforts of this are valued at more than $100,000.00. A Friday night fundraising dinner will also be available to attend this year.
