Cars for Kids – Virtual Car Show

October 1-31, 2020

Over the last 2 years, our annual Cars for Kids Car Show has not only been a way to bring our community together through fundraising efforts, but also a way to raise crucial funds for Children’s Miracle Network of New Mexico. Due to the current restrictions on large group gatherings, State ECU has decided to go virtual this year with Cars for Kids. In carrying on with the spirit of this event, we will showcase cars online through our social media channels.
