Cars and CoptersNew England's most unique charity car show began in 2009 as a spin off of Boston Cars and Coffee, but in a relatively short amount of time the event has grown into a great event in its own right. There are few events that can boast 750+ cars, there are even less that can do so and manage to get you up close to a dozen different helicopters. Cars and Copter's home can be found at The Plymouth Municipal Airport.
Since our event in 2009, Cars and Copters has become the largest event Yuppieracing.net hosts. With the help of Driven Perfection, Heliops LLC, Plymouth Municipal Airport management, B and L Productions, and The Beantown Sound; Yuppieracing.net presents an event opened to all makes and models of cars and motorcycles to benefit The Jimmy Fund in honor of Ricky Hoffman.
In past years, almost all marques have been represented, from modern day super cars to vehicles dating back to the Pre War era. In addition to an amazing display of cars, people have the chance to get up close to some amazing flying machines as well as have the oppurtunity to go for a short helicopter ride around Plymouth Harbor.
Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has supported the fight against cancer in children and adults at Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, helping to raise the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. All proceeds from the show are donated to Dana Farber's Jimmy Fund to honor Ricky Hoffman. Ricky was our special guest in 2009; he lost his battle to brain cancer shortly after the event. With our help, hopefully one day, the outcome will be different for another child.
