Traditional fundraiser in Joplin continues for Camp Corral’s kids

Money raised sponsors military children's summer camp experience

JOPLIN, Mo. – The 11th Annual Cruisin’ for Camp Corral’s Kids fundraiser kicked off on Sunday afternoon, drawing car lovers from across the area.

Dozens of automobiles, old and new, lined Golden Corral’s parking lot in Joplin.

The goal is to raise funds for the children of injured, ill, and fallen military heroes.

All of the money raised helps send these kids to Camp Corral, providing them with a unique summer camp experience so they can enjoy a fun escape.

“We average about 8 kids per year to go to it, and the great thing is they’re all located right here in the 4-states, so all the way from Joplin, to Parsons, to Baxter, we’re helping them all,” said Max Hill, Co-founder of Car Buddies Cruises, which hosted the event.

In addition to the car show, the event also included a raffle, silent auction and other activities, with all proceeds going to Camp Corral kids.
