Well Shoot Something! - Friends of Steve McQueen Car and Motorcycle Show

The tenth annual Friends of Steve McQueen Car and Motorcycle Show is set for June 2-3, at the Boys Republic in Chino Hills, California. This year’s event will revolve around the 1966 film, “The Sand Pebbles” starring Steve McQueen and Candice Bergen, and directed by Robert Wise, the movie for which Steve won an Academy Award nomination.

The action begins Friday evening, June 2, with “The Sand Pebbles” VIP dinner. The evening will include a silent auction and wine tasting, followed by a movie-themed dinner program and live auction. The meal is planned, prepared and served by the culinary students of Boys Republic. The car and motorcycle show is Saturday, June 3.

The Boys Republic was established in 1907, as a private, non-profit, nonsectarian community for at-risk boys and girls, ages 13-17. McQueen was a student from 1947-49. The actor credited the school with turning his life around and pointing him on the path to success. He never forgot, and remained involved, even after he became a Hollywood star and legend. The McQueen family continues that involvement today, with all proceeds from the event benefiting the Boys Republic.

Over the past nine years, the car and motorcycle show has raised more than $1-million, which helped create a new teaching bakery, renovation of the 60-year-old gymnasium, and complete renovation of the six campus living units. For students participating in the school’s auto-tech class, monies have been pledged to fund an annual scholarship to graduates continuing these studies at the community college level.

For more information on the event or Boys Republic, call (909) 628-1217
