“Our main motivation for this event initially started for child abuse prevention. The first seven years of hosting the Thunder on the Lot, all the funds were raised for that specific cause and our main goal was to change the image of the Antelope Valley community at the time,” said Thunder on the Lot founder Yvette Emard.
“It is now our 19th year of doing this and we’re glad to say that our efforts have shown tangible results in the Antelope Valley community and its entirely image has reformed. Now we extend our event to generate donations for other charities,” according to her statement.
Each year Thunder on the Lot generates around $250,000 for over 25 local children’s charities in the Antelope Valley such as Antelope Valley Christian School Scholarships, AV College Foundation, AV Guild of Children’s Hospital, Antelope Valley YMCA and much more.
