Havens & Sons Trucking has always been an outstanding sponsor to the California Mid-Winter Fair for over 50 Years.
Tommy has continued his parents (Lee & Betty Havens) support of the community by providing trucks for any needs required on the fairgrounds. Tommy has been a 4H livestock leader as well as a member of 4H in his youth. His love of livestock and the children that he mentored have continued the tradition of community support.
Roger has continued his parents (Lee & Betty Havens) support of the community by providing trucks for any needs required on the fairgrounds. Both for the youth in the livestock area and also for the car races for the community to enjoy. It all started with his time in 4H as a youth and has continued support with providing our foundation with donations, leadership and knowledge to help improve the Imperial Valley Raceway.
CMWF Heritage Foundation was proud to honor Tommy & Roger Havens with the Distinguished Philanthropist award at the National Philanthropy day held annually by the Imperial Valley Community Foundation.
Mid-Winter Fair Races
The California Mid-Winter Fair Heritage Foundation (CMWFHF) is a nonprofit organization established in 2011 by local members of our community who are dedicated to supporting and improving the IV Fairgrounds and the California Mid-Winter Fair and Fiesta. We received our 501C-3 status in the summer of 2014.
The mission of the CMWFHF is to solicit, accumulate and disperse funds to maintain a standard of excellence in the California IV Fairgrounds facilities, and infrastructure, assist with the development of long-term year-round uses of the fairground facilities to aid in the sustainability of the California Mid-Winter Fair for future generations. In addition, we support Agricultural Scholarships for Trade School, College or University and a Youth Livestock Mentoring Project that was new in 2023 Fair Season.
In 2022 the Foundation started a racing series, at the Imperial Valley Raceway to utilize the fairgrounds racetrack not just for events during the Fair. In 2023 we held racing events in September and in October we finished a two-day event that included Lightning Sprint, IMCA Modified, Non-Wing Sprint, and local sport compacts which we refer to as Heritage Cars.
Congratulations to all the 2023 National Philanthropy Day recipients. Your support to our community has continued to improve our Valley.
