The San Juan Capistrano Rotary Club welcomed more than 1,500 guests and their four-legged companions to San Juan Sports Park for the 11th annual Rotary/CARe Car Show.

Guests and their dogs were able to check out more than 300 classic and modern cars and trucks on display. The event also featured food, drinks, music and live entertainment, including the return of popular Disc Dogs in Southern Californian Frisbee team.

The Rotary Club raised around $40,000 for their year-round charitable efforts, including the Capistrano Animal Rescue effort, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley, local Marines and their families, The Shea Therapeutic Riding Center and Great Opportunities.

Mayor Sam Allevato was on hand to select this year’s Mayor Award winner, which went to Sam and Donna Rindskopf and their 1957 Chevy Nomad.
