The 2012 Friends of Steve McQueen Car show was a great success, there were many beautiful vehicles on display and most importantly, it was to benefit Boys Republic.
About Boys Republic: Boys Republic was founded in 1907 in an effort to treat troubled teenagers without sending them to jail with adult criminals. A Los Angeles-based program was later formed with the founding principles that would require youth to become responsible for their own actions, earn part of their way through a program of meaningful work, respectful of the rights of others, and accountable to their peers through a system of student self-government. A start-up grant of $10,000 established the program in an old hotel, located in the San Fernando Valley. Two years later, in 1909, the facility opened at the organization's present 200-acre site in Chino Hills. Despite a gradual expansion and evolution of its offerings, Boys Republic's programs continue to embody the core values upon which the organization was founded over 100 years ago. From state-of-the-art vocational training in computer science to daily group counseling and interaction, great care is taken to assure that these experiences teach young adults the personal qualities needed of a citizen in today's society - responsibility, diligence, respect for the rights of others and respect for himself.
Steve MaQueen Bio:
" Steve McQueen left an indelible imprint as one of Hollywood's sexiest leading men. His balance of masculinity and sensitivity made him both a man's man and a ladies' man all at once. His revered roles in films such as Bullitt, The Great Escape, The Thomas Crown Affair and, Papillion have been often imitated but never repeated. An actor, race-car driver, and father, McQueen was the epitome of the American dream, rising from hardscrabble circumstances to become one of the most famous movie stars in the world. "
