This year we raised $70,000
for the Ronald McDonald House.
Special thanks to all these great artists for making it happen!
This year's party was held on July 18th, 19th, & 20th and as always part of the Syracuse Nationals car show. We've added some cool new features this year which will make the party even better. Once again the Winfield Award finalists will be on display and competing this year for $15,000 in prize money!
Once again we will be supporting the Central New York Ronald McDonald House with our charity auctions this year. We're really looking forward to raising a bunch of money for them to help support these seriously ill children and their families.
We're proud to announce that the title sponsor for this year's Artie's Party will be 1 Shot Paint Company!
Again this year, the "Gasoline Alley" nostalgia race car display will be in the building. We'll have a great display of cars from all forms of motorsports. Things are going to get louder outside because along with the Frantic Ford Mustang funny car we'll have Brian Darcy's top fuel dragster and Ed Pearson's AA/Fuel Altered on display. Plus, they will be starting them up and we will be allowing people to bid on "seat time" for the startup procedure. This should raise some good money for the Ronald McDonald House. BlueTiger Racing simulators will be back and you pinstripers get a chance to go for the Artie's Party Top Eliminator trophy again! Practice up!
Trane Corporation has agreed to come back and cool us all off with those portable air conditioning units. Our hotels this year will be The Crowne Plaza in downtown Syracuse and the Candlewood Suites. Both hotels have agreed to continue last year's prices for us.
Once again the REAL Artie's Party, sponsored by Xcaliber Corporation will be on Friday night. Returning this year to entertain us is the band Donna Colton and the Troublemakers! If you were here last year, you will remember their great sound, but if you need a reminder, be sure to visit their MySpace page. or check out their YouTube videos.
