Newburgh - The Annual Richard Jacob Rudy Memorial Car Show was held on July 18th and 19th, 2009 at the Orange County Choppers World Headquarters in Newburgh, NY.  The car show fundraiser, which raised $6,500, is held annually to celebrate Richard Jacob Rudy’s passion for cars, motorcycles and helping others.  The Orange County Choppers hosted the weekend event which featured a memorial bike ride, car show, live music, trophies, raffles, food, and children’s activities.  Representatives from the Army National Guard, West Point, Tuxedo Ridge (sponsor), the Veterans Association, Lincoln Tech, and Monster Mini Golf were also on hand.

All proceeds from the event benefited the Richard Jacob Rudy Memorial Fund, which provides a scholarship to an Orange-Ulster BOCES student who participates in the C-TEC Automotive Technology Program, makes grants to the Brian Ahearn Children’s Fund and Make A Wish Foundation of the Hudson Valley.  The Richard Jacob Rudy Memorial Fund was established by Katie Rudy through the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, in memory of her brother, who was tragically killed in a car accident. 


The Richard Jacob Rudy Memorial Fund is facilitated through the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan, a 501(c)(3) public charity that was created to help individuals, organizations, and businesses establish charitable endowments within their community.  To create your own charitable endowment or to make a contribution to this fund or another charitable fund within the Community Foundation’s umbrella, please visit or contact Karen VanHouten, Executive Director at (845) 769-9393
