Mt. San Jacinto College (MSJC) will once again team up with Local Car Scene on Sunday, Aug. 8, to host its Coffee & Cars event at the college’s Temecula Valley Campus, drawing more than 600 cars.
The college and Local Car Scene are bringing back the popular event from 8 to 10 a.m. at the college’s newest campus at 41888 Motor Car Parkway, just off Ynez Road in Temecula. The first car show was held on July 11 and attracted a large audience to come look at the hot rods and classic cars that were featured.
“We were thrilled to partner with Local Car Scene and offer a family-friendly event at our newest campus before we open our doors to students on Aug. 16, the first day of our fall semester,” said Rebecca Orlauski, director of the MSJC Foundation, who worked with the car show group to host the event. “We know the MSJC Temecula Valley Campus is new to the community and we wanted to provide a unique and inviting opportunity for residents to be on our campus, get familiar with our location, and enjoy the car show. It was so popular, we knew we had to bring Local Car Scene back again.”
Together with generous donors and the MSJC Community, the MSJC Foundation works to support Mt. San Jacinto College students through scholarships and grants that aid students, faculty and support services.
The MSJC Foundation disbursed more than 374 scholarships, totaling $356,296, and 159 emergency scholarships totaling $41,750 to MSJC students in the 2020-2021 academic year.
