Our heartfelt thanks to the hundreds of people who took part in The Charity Car Show with proceeds benefiting the Children’s Christmas Fund, Heartbeat of Lima, Our Daily Bread, and the Veterans Food Pantry. So many people volunteer their time to help put on this extraordinary car show. This year the show was enhanced by the American Bombshells professional trio who sang patriotic songs from past and present and mingled with the crowd. The entertainment was underwritten by J’s American Pub and the Kriegel family who also treated all the volunteers to a special dinner the night before.
The many sponsors who generously donate the event are too many to mention, but they make it possible for all the proceeds to go directly to the charities. Special thanks also to Westgate Entertainment Center, The Lima News, Your Hometown Stations, Time Warner Cable, Maverick Media, Clear Channel, the billboards and The Cheap Sign Company, Merri Hanjora, the judges who had a very tough time narrowing down the winners, the participants who brought their great vehicles and all who came out for this community event.
