A group of Chevrolet Camaro car owners raised $2,436 for the Community Connections food bank and Christmas hamper programs.

The more than 110 participants gathered in Revelstoke for Revyfest on August 18–21 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Camaro. This is the sixth year the event has taken place. In the past two years Revyfest participants have donated more than $3,550 to help stock the shelves at the Community Connections food bank.

Revyfest is the largest get-together of Chevrolet Camaros and their owners in the Pacific Northwest, including those from Washington, Idaho, Oregon, B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan. This year’s gathering saw participants in Revelstoke for four days of events including a car show, poker tournament, group dinners, and fundraisers for Community Connections.
