Executive Team

Gardner Altman, Jr.,  Co-Founder

Gardner Altman, Jr.- As a Co-Founder of Hogs & Rags, I am proud of the many individuals and families that have been supported and served by funds donated by H&R.  A hard working team and generous sponsors have  dedicated time and contributed resources that have resulted in more than $275,000.00 in support of the operation of the event and donations to organizations that serve families in need.  It is a great source of pleasure for me to be a small part of a great H&R team and a member of the Hogs & Rags " family " of riders and drivers that gather each Spring to have fun, make memories and help families in need.
