Shifting Gears Rally and Gala Raises $167,000 for Roots of Peace
The Shifting Gears Rally occurred October 9 – 11 – 2014 and featured nearly 40 vintage and exotic cars traveling the scenic back roads of Marin and Sonoma Counties to raise awareness and funds for Roots of Peace (ROP). The weekend concluded with a sold-out Gala, successful live auction, and “Fund-A–Need” paddle raise. The events raised net proceeds of $167,000 for Roots of Peace, which was subject to a 100% matching grant from the U.S. Department of State, making total proceeds raised by the Shifting Gears efforts in excess of $330,000, which will fund the removal of landmines and installation of sustainable farmlands in Vietnam.
