In the fall of 2020 a group of individuals came together with the idea to put a non judged local truck show together to raise money & help cover treatment costs for a fellow driver in West Michigan who had been battling cancer for several years. The show was so well received within the community that what we had planned to be a “one and done” show, had several requests that it be continued the following year.

Great Lakes Pride & Shine was officially formed the following year with 5 active board members from the trucking community made up of mechanics, drivers, instructors, and salesmen and remains 100% volunteer based.

Unfortunately, the trucking community lost Luke “Cool Hand” Tanis who this event originally started for in February of 2022, but are blessed to have his family continue to come and support the event along with displaying Luke’s truck, “Miss Katie.”

Great Lakes Pride & Shine is a registered 501(c)3 non profit organization dedicated to working with other organizations in West Michigan to make a positive impact within our community as well as shining a positive light on the trucking community.
