We need your support at the Classic Car Show!


Once again, the WRBA will be coordinating the Classic Car Show at RidgeFest. Last year, it was a huge success, and this year is going to be even bigger and better. As part of the car show, we give away many door prizes to participating car owners. Last year, WRBA members were extremely generous and donated many prizes for the show. We are asking for your help again this year. If your business would like to contribute, please email Ashley Holland at aholland@wearelocalworks.org by August 31. We’ll recognize your business for your contribution, and it’ll help make this year’s car show the best one yet. Thanks!

How powerful is Scientific Hand Analysis? It is so accurate, profound, and life-changing that FORBES wrote an article about Jayne and her work.  Jayne’s other passion is riding Darby, her Arabian-Appaloosa cross she rescued a few years ago.
