MISSION STATEMENT OF VENICE RGION AACA

AIMS AND PURPOSE

The local vehicle resource for promoting and educating the public and collector car community on the historical value that the automobile has had on our society.

The aim is to foster camaraderie, sportsmanship and good will among members and the

the local community with activities that can raise funds to support our local charities.

Our region is an operating franchise of The Antique Automobile Club of America International of Hershey, Pennsylvania a 501-C-3 corporation as designated by the IRS code. The Venice Region is registered as a non profit (501-C-3) Corporation both in the State of Florida and with the Internal Revenue Service which allows your contributions to be TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Our major fund raising event is an Annual Car Show that has been historically held a Centennial Park on the Isle of Venice for the past thirty–two years (32).

The benefits from this show have historically gone into the Venice AACA scholarship fund which had provided scholarships of $1,000 / ea. to graduating Seniors of Venice High School.. In 2018 our charitable committee was established with the idea of expanding our community donations and exposure. We now support South County Food Pantry, In Stride, South East Guide Dogs, All Children’s Network, Fishing for Hero’s, Operation 2nd Chance, South County Technical School and many others.

Contributions would not be possible with out the support of our business partners in the community who through their contributions to our sponsorship program and our advertising, make it possible for us to award them.
