On August 11, we had a fun day in the sun, centered on the things we love most here at Friendly Ford: cars and people. Our annual Car Show & Customer Appreciation Day started at 9 AM and finished up at 3 PM.
Around 700 people made it out to the car show that boasted 150 individual cars from old to new. These included Model A’s, Model T’s, modern-day vehicles and even some motorcycles.
Besides excellent cars, we also had a grill-out. For the whole event, we grilled 700 hot dogs. All food and beverages were free to our attendees. In return, we asked for donations toward Phil’s Friends in Roselle from people who were able and willing to make donations.
Phil’s Friends is a faith-based nonprofit organization, founded by two-time cancer survivor Phil Zielke, “committed to bringing support and hope to those affected by cancer in the United States.”
The Car Show and Customer Appreciation event came and went like a Ford Mustang going from 0-to-60 mph, and we are already looking forward to next year’s event.
Besides all who attended and the ones who provided the classic cars for the show, we’d like to thank Chris Bryan and his from State Farm, Phil’s Friends, and the Roselle Police Department.
