The Burgiemen Car Club was founded in 1959 and stayed active until 1976. The club was reactivated in 1999 by Bruce W. Risley, Don Honstein, Bob Taylor and Glenn Boulware. The founding fathers named the club after the Northern California Burgermeister Beer Company’s mascot – the Burgieman. The newly organized Burgiemen are a social club and specialty car club. The club now has over 30 members, including 15 original Burgiemen. Of the 15 original members currently in the club there are two founding members, Larry Andreuccetti and Gary Straughn. Club members participate in many weekend trips and dinner day trips and shows, particularly those shows sponsored by other car clubs.
The Burgiemen have raised money for many causes including Make a Wish Foundation, Special Olympics, Shriner's Hospital and the SPCA. The Burgiemen invite you and your club to help these charities either on your own or through the Burgiemen.
