The hilarious and poignant 1973 hit movie American Graffiti is set in Modesto, Calif. in 1962, a time and place of early rock n’ roll, drag races and diners. Directed by George Lucas, the movie follows four friends over the course of one summer night as they navigate relationships, their futures and the decisions that will impact both. American Graffiti has been recognized for helping to launch or further the careers of Richard Dreyfuss, Ron Howard, Paul Le Mat, Harrison Ford, Cindy Williams, Mackenzie Phillips and Wolfman Jack.

This year’s event will also feature a showing of classic cars provided by members of local group, the Roamin’ Angels. Imagine yourself in the 1960s as you peruse several vintage automobiles parked on Mill Street in downtown Grass Valley.

Event proceeds will benefit the new Infusion Center at SNMH, which is scheduled to open late fall of 2017. Infusion therapy plays a vital role in the health of our community, delivering intravenous medication to patients who are battling diseases such as cancer, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, anemia and congestive heart failure, to name a few. This new center will feature state-of-the-art equipment and a calming environment that includes ample natural light and a view of the surrounding foothills.
