  • National Hot Rod Association
    Celebrating its 60th anniversary, the NHRA’s top pedal grinders compete for the checkers as Lucas Oil Raceway hosts the high-octane conclusion to this year’s NHRA Mac Tools U.S. Nationals, one of drag racing’s most prestigious events. The ghosts of former Model-T drivers race alongside novice and veteran speed demons such as champion Larry Dixon as they try to secure enough points to propel their teams into the Countdown playoffs and Full Throttle championships. The legendary track lives up to its reputation for smoothness as cars glide towards the finish line like sticks of butter on a bunny slope.

  • Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce
    A multifarious but rarely nefarious array of local wineries, restaurants, artisans, crafters, and entertainers fortifies the stomping grounds at the Grape Harvest Festival, the oldest fete of its kind in California. But the main attraction is, without a doubt, the myriad buckets of squishy, sweet violet spheres waiting for aspirant tap dancers and resentful vegetable farmers to engage in one of the few remaining traditional grape stomps open to the public. Once you've finished gleefully purpling your heels, you'll get to taste the fermented fruits of local labor and celebrate the Rancho Cucamonga community’s vineyard heritage by sampling sips and nibbles from fine neighboring eateries, with each bite soundtracked by live music and other performances populating the various festival stages. Meanwhile, palates preferring motor oil to wine can salivate over the careful craftsmanship and luscious vroom-vrooms of the fest’s Saturday motorcycle rally and Sunday car show, which showcase a wide sampling of motos, including wine-powered Harleys and the rare ’82 vintage Ford Zinfandel. And with more than 100 arts and crafts options, the artsy-flatulentsy of any age can both make and take home handcrafted treasures.

  • Maloof Foundation
    For more than half a century, internationally renowned woodworker Sam Maloof remained a leader in his field by crafting furniture that included rocking chairs for four US presidents. While some of his pieces now grace permanent collections at acclaimed sites such as New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, more than 100 pieces are exhibited at the Maloof Foundation museum. Housed in Sam's hand-built 16-room residence, the museum showcases rotating exhibits in gallery spaces such as the Pyramid Room and the Jacobs Gallery. Before becoming a museum, the residence was relocated from its original lemon grove to a 6-acre site, where it's now nestled amid lemon trees and a 4-acre Maloof Discovery Garden that features sculptures and native California plants. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the residence opens for docent-led tours twice a week and doubles as a gathering place for programs such as crafts workshops.

  • MUZEO Museum and Cultural Center
    Through its rotating lineup of exhibits and engaging events, MUZEO—which means “museum” in the international language of Esperanto—fosters diversity and cross-cultural understanding by making culture accessible to every member of the community. The 25,000-square-foot complex encompasses the original 1908 Carnegie Library as well as a brand-new art-gallery space, and it plays host to three different traveling exhibitions per year. One current offering, Spies, Traitors, and Saboteurs: Freedom in America, produced by the International Spy Museum and running through Monday, September 16, 2013, mines the rich history of international espionage and its current role in our nation. Though two free docent tours are offered with admission on Saturdays and Sundays, most visitors peruse the exhibits at their own pace. Check out the calendar of events to view museum goings-on by date. See how Groupon helps you discover local causes and lend a helping hand at the Groupon Grassroots blog.

  • Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center
    In an effort to create violence-free homes, Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center (CAPC) works to stop the generational cycle of child abuse. Through in-home visits and mental-health counseling, it teaches at-risk families how to replace parenting that may lead to abuse and neglect with healthy, positive parenting styles, promoting self-sufficiency and nurturing parent-child relationships. CAPC caseworkers use 14 intervention-style programs to alleviate family stress and eliminate negative parenting techniques that could lead to child abuse. They work with high-risk families to promote positive parenting with infants and toddlers, teach teens about healthy dating choices, and reach out to families in which abuse is suspected. Parent-to-parent workshops connect families to help them learn from one another, whereas in-home mental-health services and crisis stabilization for suicidal or homicidal children help reduce violence in already fractured homes.

  • MeoowzResQ
    MeoowzResQ rescues cats and kittens and raises them in private foster homes until they can find forever families. The more than 200 cats available for adoption range from bottle-fed babies to senior citizens, many of whom have been abused, injured, or found abandoned in boxes on the sidewalk or as survivors of fire. Volunteer foster families provide litter, a warm bed, and food for the cats, and each feline receives full vaccinations, de-worming treatment, and a spay or neutering treatment. Many of the cats come from shelters with rampant disease and require veterinary care and medications. In 2012 alone, MeoowzResQ placed 1,485 cats and kittens in loving permanent homes.
