TSRA Car Show a Hit at Pima

PCC’s Downtown Campus hosted the Tucson Street Rod Association Annual Rodders Days car show on April 28. It was the 44th year of the event, but the first time at a PCC campus. Downtown Campus proved an ideal location thanks to plentiful parking under the shade. The event raised $4,000 for Pima programs. Next year’s car show returns to Downtown Campus, this time on April 27.
