RODRIDES EVENTS

Hot Rod Taxi Tour - Boerne, TX

Sounds cool, huh? But, what does it mean?  Think of this event as a horse and carriage ride, but you just get to ride in the best cars and trucks around. Yes, that’s right, you will no longer need to admire sweet rides from a distance at a car show. At this event, you can actually pay to get in them and cruise.

RodRides is bringing the plan, Hot Rod Garage and Soda Pops are bringing their local love of cars, and the AgriCultural Museum and Arts Center is bringing the space to help raise funds for the nonprofit,  Girl with Grit Program and give the people of Boerne, TX the coolest tour of our town possible. 100% of proceeds will go to the nonprofit.

WHAT CAN A DRIVER EXPECT?

Rather than sitting and showing your ride at a traditional car show, you’ll be driving passengers for a 25 minute trip showing the town. You’ll share some stories and give them a cool experience. RodRides will organize the event, bookings based on your schedule, and payment.

Driver Payments: For fundraising for our affilated nonprofit programs, RodRides donates 100% of the proceeds to the cause. For rides where the driver keeps the fare, they get 70% of the fare.

Requirements:

All vehicles must be registered with the state, insured, and street legal.

We have a passenger code of conduct and terms and conditions to protect our drivers. Our goal is to make this an event that is fun for everyone, all while benefiting the Girl with Grit Program.

Outside of your name and vehicle, your registration information will remain confidential.

You can cancel your registration anytime.

Can’t participate April 3rd at the AgriCultural Museum and Arts Center? Still register, we have more events planned.

Girl with Grit Program

Girl with Grit Program is a nonprofit in Boerne, TX that has gotten the attention of strong women, car lovers, and many more around the country as the girls work on their 1935 Chevy Truck and launch their own businesses.

The program seeks to teach young women and girls “We can do it!” through real life experiences and examples. Girls do everything from design and sell products to art and artisan work to skilled trades.

The program originally was developed by Blythe Zemel (Blythe Arts and Safety Sasses) and has garnered board members Staci Andrews from the locally famed Soda Pops and Ashley Robertson from ToyMakerz on History Channel. The board is filled with other strong and impressive women from all walks of life.

We believe that strong girls grow up to be strong women!
