In 2006, under the leadership of Christi Edelbrock, Rev’ved Up 4 Kids was founded. At its inception, Christi led a group of just 5 volunteers through the planning and logistics of the very first event that was attended by over a thousand people and more than 200 cars.
Over the past 7 years, Rev’ved Up 4 Kids has established itself as a one-of-a-kind charity event that is fun for the whole family and community. Rev’ved Up 4 Kids has continued to draw in cars of every variety including street rods, muscle cars, classic cars, trucks, specialty vehicles, motorcycles, private collections and more!
Collections: Rev’ved Up 4 Kids has been fortunate to have many private, museum quality, car collections on display over the years, including that of Bruce Meyer, Nicholas Colonna, Parnelli Jones, Dave Parker, The Petersen Museum, The Historic Trans Am Group, Star Cars, Shelby Automobiles, Hot Wheels, Overhaulin’, Chip Foose. West Coast Customs, Deuce of Spades, Roy Brizio, Ed Pink, Gene Winfield, Rich Evans, George Barris, Brandon Weaver and more!
Show Cars: Hundreds of show cars fill our lot and winners across many classes are selected and receive trophies from our gracious sponsors.
Organizations: Some of the major organizations that participate in Rev’ved Up 4 Kids include The Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge, Ohio Technical College, Edelbrock Performance Academy, Campus Cruisers and The Henry Ford. With the focus of Rev’ved Up 4 Kids being education, the collaboration between these institutions has become that much more important.
Vendors: Over 50 vendors are on display introducing their products to a unique and diverse crowd at Rev’ved Up 4 Kids.
Volunteers: Rev’ved Up 4 Kids could not be made possible without the generosity of those in our community and beyond. Nearly 300 people a year come to the event and volunteer their time to make this event a success.
The ultimate goal of the Rev’ved Up 4 Kids charity event is to create greater awareness on the local and national levels for The Center For Learning Unlimited, a Torrance, California based institution. Founded in 1985, The Center is a small, highly specialized day school that serves both publicly and privately sponsored students in grades 3-12 from Los Angeles South Bay communities. Students at all grade levels participate in an enriched California state curriculum, adapted to meet their learning style needs. The Center is a best match for bright students identified as Asperger’s Syndrome (ASD), Bipolar Disorder or PPD/PPD-NOS (Pervasive Developmental Disorder/-Not Otherwise Specified).
