Brought into existence 15 years ago by social interaction between a small number of people joined by their enthusiasm for cars, the Palm Springs Cruisin Association has grown from a small group to well over 100 club members and as many as 125 cars on average, at each monthly cruise. Started by Bob Hunt and Loren Orcutt as a means for connecting with other car enthusiasts, this association has grown in both size and reputation with their charitable fund raising activities. Known mainly for their annual benefits for the Bread of Life and Dr. Sebastian George Cancer Foundation charities, this group excels in their enthusiasm for helping mankind and their own community by hosting fund raisers geared at raising money for a number of valid causes.
The group activity schedule includes a monthly cruise night located on the corner of Calle Encilla and Amado at the exotic Spa Resort Casino gracing downtown Palm Springs. For a night of fun, friends, and an enjoyable atmosphere, these cruises are normally scheduled for the first Saturday of each month from September to June. Welcoming everyone and anyone, the collection of over 150 spectacular cars ranging from hot rods to corvettes, street rods to classic cars, and many more are available for free viewing, accompanied by a variety of activities that include the entire family.
Kids and adults alike are welcome to try their luck in the slot car racing, coloring and model car contests, and for those risky enthusiasts, a hula hoop contest lures contestants with the promise of fun and laughter. Interspersed between the entertainments that accompanies each cruise night are 50/50 drawings and a raffle, giving you a chance to help support the clubs endeavors to aid their fellow man.
A pit stop at their spectacular website gives you a variety of options to choose from through a list of click-able links that make user navigation a breeze. Leaving the competition in the dust, the club devotes an entire page to explaining their purpose driven continuity of a tradition started fifteen years ago, and provides numerous links for additional information or help, depending on your interest. The list of links includes, but is not limited to Hot Rod Hotline, Palm Springs Corvette Club, Dr. Torch Designs, and several others. For you enthusiasts looking for a sister site that offers more thrills, activities, and cars, the links page is designed entirely with you in mind.
Race over to the Members Rides page for a glimpse of the club members and their individual choices of motor masterpieces. Sporting a broad range of makes and models spanning a wide selection of the early years, these vehicles have been lovingly cared for, restored, and kept in mint condition with a meticulous dedication that can only be the result of being a die hard car enthusiast.
Even if you have no understanding of cars, attending one of these amazing events is a must-do, so grab your friends and family, visit the website for the Palm Springs Cruisin Association and get the date for the next monthly cruise night and become a part of something big, fun, and unforgettable.
