The Two Kids Foundation Charity Car Show will roll into Morris County for the 11th year, drawing hundreds of classic and custom cars and throngs of families and onlookers to raise money for families of pediatric cancer patients, on August 5, 2012.
In addition to classic antique vehicles, muscle cars and sports cars, entered by owners from throughout New Jersey and the region, the show will also feature specialty cars such as the Batmobile (from the 1960s TV series) and the Scooby Doo Van.
All proceeds benefit the Two Kids Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises money to help children that have been diagnosed with cancer and other serious diseases. Atlantic Health System’s Goryeb Children’s Hospital will again sponsor the car show. Each year, the Valerie Fund Children’s Center at Goryeb Children’s Hospital, which treats children with cancer and blood-related diseases, helps the Two Kids Foundation find pediatric patients whose families are in need of assistance.
Since the organization was founded more than a decade ago, the Two Kids Foundation has been able to assist numerous families through the car show, as well as an annual dinner dance held in the fall. The foundation this year also began holding charity cruise nights every Wednesday evening in the parking lot of the Mount Olive A&P.
“The support of the exhibitors as well as spectators has helped make the annual car show not only an exciting, fun family event each year, but a much-needed source of support for families of children who are going through difficult times,” said Glenn Wiederman, executive director of the Two Kids Foundation.
Along with fun activities and games for kids, the event will feature live musical performances as well as noted oldies DJ, “The Golden Gup.” All vehicles are welcome – cars, trucks, motorcycles and military. Dash plaques will be given to the first 600 vehicles, and more than 150 sponsored trophies for entries 25 years or more. A customized banner will be awarded to the club with the most registered participants.
