10th Annual JDRF Charity Car Show

The 10th Annual JDRF Charity Car Show was another huge success! Thanks to all of those who came out and all of those who supported! We raised just over $3,000 dollars for JDRF! Check out all the coverage below!

 

 

It was our first year as a two day show, Friday night we had a BBQ rib dinner along with a concert by Limited Distance. It was gloomy but never rained, we had about 40 cars along with some spectators, a great time was had! We will be back next year again on Friday night!

9th Annual JDRF Charity Car Show

Another JDRF Charity Car Show is in the books! First off, I’d like to say thank you to all the sponsors, volunteers, spectators and especially to everyone that brought their cars out! Even with a chance of rain dozens of first class cars showed up! All in all we had 191 cars. A new record! Still shy of our overall goal of 200, but we will get there!

Before I start with the event coverage, I’d like to say a word about the awards, first off, if you didn’t get your award and won one, I’ll be getting it to you either in person or via the mail in the next week. I know alot of people left or couldn’t here us when the sound system died. Second, there was about six awards in some of the classes that I skipped, I apologize to those people and will announce those winners in a few minutes. We were in a hurry up all day with the judging process and awards, but there is just so much hurry you can put into judging almost 200 cars. As always we take a look at our process and make changes every year, next year, major changes will be made to the awards and judging process including a move to a computerized process to prevent human error. I apologize to those few that I skipped and ask everyone to be patient with us as with the whole show, even in the 9th year its a growing and learning process! But please don’t loose sight of the overall reason we are all there, to raise money for JDRF! And raise money we did!!

The final total isn’t in yet, but we raised somewhere in the neighborhood of 5800 bucks!!! That is a record for us!! That puts us at OVER 30,000 dollars for 9 years!!!! That is out of this world!!! Thank you!!

I mentioned there were a few award winners I overlooked, again, my apologies and here they are.

Ford Car 64 & Older 3rd Place: #56 Tony Allen 1934 Ford 3 Window Coupe

Open Class Car 90 & Up 1st Place: #26 Adrian Martinez 1994 Honda Accord

With over 100 awards, I’m not going to take the time to list them all, but I will list the top awards. For the first time we had specific classes this year instead of just top 25 trophies and I will be the first to admit it’s a work in progress, turnouts were better in some classes than we expected, worse in others, so we will be adjusting next year! Like always, its hard to judge a show, every car and truck there deserved a trophy!!

7TH ANNUAL JDRF CHARITY CAR SHOW EVENT COVERAGE

Another year and another awesome show! First off let me start of by personally thanking each and every volunteer, sponsor, and person who brought out their awesome cars and trucks. Without you all, this event would not be! 2013 was yet again our biggest and best year ever! We had 115 cars registered and over 130 on the show field! Little by little we just keep on growing! We also raised $3260 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation! What an awesome amount! That puts our 7 year total over $20,000 dollars by $300!! The weather was nice and hot, it finally felt like summertime! Even though we did have a quick rain shower to cool things off, I didn’t here anyone complaining about the weather!

The awards get tougher and tougher to give out each year.
