It’s an event that gives some of the biggest car enthusiasts in the area a chance to show off their pride and joy- their vehicles. But the car show does much more than just give owners a chance to display their cars, it helps a worthy charity.
It’s the annual Weston car and motorcycle show. It’s hosted by Dale's Weston Lanes, and invites car and motorcycle enthusiasts to come out and display their most cherished vehicles. Something those on hand take very seriously
Pat McCarthy, showing his Corvette says, "It’s nice to see everybody taking care of all these old cars and putting them in the show like this."
As great as the cars look, there is something bigger going on at the show. Just what happens to the $8 entry fee each participant pays. It goes directly to the Ronald McDonald Houses- both the Marshfield- and Madison locations.
Organizers say attendance plays a key role in what they raise, and this year, they think they may be a bit down from past years.
Show organizer, Sarah Dickinson says, "This year we are down a little bit. We have 102 car and we usually have 150. But there are some other car shows in the area."
The lower turn out is not holding the show back though.
Organizers say the show gives people a chance to see some pretty cool machines. Dickinson says, "Basically its just a good time, everyone is here checking out cars. Even if you don’t know about them you can at least say their pretty. There is just alot of money sitting in our parking lot its a good time."
Sunday’s goal is to either match- or surpass last year's show earnings. That number is $1500, all of which was donated to the Ronald McDonald House.
Those in charge say they are confident this year’s earnings will be similar.
