The mission of the the MHRV Show Association is to promote the RV lifestyle--“Creating Lifetime Memories” with family and friends. The message of the Washington State Parks’ Association is “Adventure Awaits”. Together, these two Washington institutions offer fun and discovery to everyone in the state.
“Owning an RV wouldn’t nearly be as fun if you couldn’t spend time in our state parks—they’re beautiful”, says Dave Helgeson, MHRV show director. “But we’re in danger of losing some of them. In fact, over 40 Washington State Parks are at risk of closure due to massive budget cuts so we felt we needed to help in some way”. Helgeson adds, “ The MHRV Show Association hosted two very successful RV shows this year and we’re donating a portion of the gate to the state parks.”
During both MHRV Shows, The Seattle RV Show held in February and The Puyallup RV Show held in May, a portion of the money collected at the at the box office was designated to be donated to Washington State Parks. “It’s their 100th Anniversary and this is our small way of saying ‘Happy Birthday’”, states Helgeson.
A special presentation was held in Olympia on Monday, June 10, 2013 when the MHRV Show Association presented a check of $7,188 to Assistant Parks Director, Mike Sternback.
