WESTON, Conn. – For the second year, Weston High School will play host to more than 100 classic cars and motorcycles to support the Weston Senior Activities Center on Sunday, Sept. 22.
So far, more than 100 cars and motorcycles are registered, said Marianne Brunson Frisch, a spokeswoman for the event. “We don’t know dhow many unregistered cars will come,” but organizers are expecting at least 100, or a turnout similar to last year.
Named after Weston car collector, Alden Sherman, last year’s inaugural classic car show brought nearly 1,000 people to town and raised more than $26,000 for the senior center.
“Everyone that works on the car show are all volunteers and the $26,000 was net profit,” Frisch said. And the funds raised go toward increased programming at the senior center.
The idea of having a classic car show as a fundraiser came from the center’s executive director, Wendy Petty, whose husband Frisch said, is a car guy.
This year’s event will feature car club parking corrals, a silent auction, varied lunch offerings, and the public’s opportunity to vote for their favorite car and motorcycle with People’s Choice ballots.
The winner of the People’s Choice, will receive a trophy, Frisch said.
The event is open to families of all ages and will run on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a rain date of Sept. 29.
It doesn’t cost anything to go to the event but a donation is requested of $20 for a family, $10 for an adult, $5 for a child and $2 for a senior.
