15th Annual Still Saving Lives Car Show

June 30, 2018

More than 200 classic, vintage and antique vehicles rolled into Warner Center Park during the early morning hours of Saturday, June 2nd. But there were plenty of officers from the Valley Traffic Division on scene to handle the bedlam and the 15th Annual “Still Saving Lives Car Show and Safety Fair” was very soon up and running.

LAFRA Trustee Ken Breskin has been known for coordinating car shows to benefit ailing LAFD members in the past, but this is the first time he’s teamed up with the LAPD. Under Ken’s direction, the proceeds from this event were split between the Valley Traffic Advisory Council and the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firemen’s Fund.

In addition to the automotive eye candy, show goers were treated to displays by LAPD’s Motorcycle Drill Team, Bomb Squad and K9 units. Mark Kriski from KTLA’s Channel 5 News was brought in as the emcee. There was also live music provided by “The Original Gumball factory.”

Valerie Lawrence and her volunteer cadre provided a raffle with more than 100 items up for bid. Vic Villa from FS 18 also had a booth selling wares to benefit LAFD member Henry Munoz, who is working through a serious illness.

Breskin never shows up alone at these events. This time he was assisted by Steve Canchola and Steve Hall (along with their better-halves), Steve Ravitz, Mano Gonzalez, Jeff Harvey, Fernando Pattison, Steve Perez, Mike Kammerer and the LAFD Cadets from Posts 81 and 87. Rick Godinez was also on hand, representing LAFRA and the WODFF.
