The Georgetown Texas Area Car Club (GTACC) is an IRC 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt Social and Recreation Club dedicated to promoting the enjoyment of classic, antique and special-interest vehicles and a proud member of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce. The Club is a regular participant of the Red Poppy Festival parade, and supports local festivals, promotions and charitable events whenever possible. The Club was formed in 2005 and has a membership of 132 automotive enthusiasts.
The majority of the funding for the scholarships and other charitable causes supported by GTACC is raised at the Club’s Annual Car Show and Charity Benefit. Our 16th annual show will be held on May 6, 2023 at the Sun City Social Center parking lot. This event continues to grow every year and has rapidly developed a reputation for one of the best organized and enjoyable car show in the central Texas area. The 2022 show had 240 vehicles entered with a spectator attendance approaching 700.
GTACC awards the "Bob Olofson Memorial Scholarship" to graduating Georgetown and East View High School seniors who have successfully completed the Automotive Technology Program and have committed to continuing their formal education. In the past 14 years GTACC has donated $63,500 towards the scholarship fund from the annual car show proceeds.
GTACC has also contributed $32,500 over the past 14 years to various local charity organizations as additional support to our community. GTACC made a special donation of an additional $6,000 to the relief efforts in LaGrange as a result of Hurricane Harvey.
GTACC continues to support the Williamson County Brown Santa program to provide assistance to families in Williamson County living outside the geographical city limits of any town or city within Williamson County that does not provide a similar program. Brown Santa donations are utilized to purchase toys, books and other items needed to make the children's Christmas brighter. GTACC members have contributed an average of $1,025 for the past six years to make the Christmas season joyous for families in need.
