Simmons Island was a destination for car enthusiasts on Sunday, but it was also one that served to raise awareness and funds to help wounded military veterans.

“It’s the biggest one we’ve ever had,” said Nick Pulera, the chapter’s chairman, referring to the number of vehicles that turned out for the event.
