Cars assist worthy cause

Heritage vehicle show benefits the Wounded Warrior Project

Mother Nature smiled on the Heritage Benefit Car Show on June 8 with a temperature of 74 degrees, a light breeze and a mix of sun and clouds. Many antique and classic cars graced the grounds of the Livingston County East Complex in Genoa Township. The vendors had superb food. There were amazing door prizes, many trophies and a wide variety of auction items.

Radio station B95, brought to the car show by Mary Otero, was an exciting opening to the day. Disc jockey Jared Jones followed B95 with music and announcements during the event.

An exceptional auction item was a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero, donated by Vern Brockway, owner of Regal Recycling. The automobile brought in more money than any donated item in the eight years since the car show began. The success of the event allows the Heritage Hope Foundation to donate all the proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project, Patriot Guard and the National Guard.

Prudential Heritage Real Estate, host of the car show, thanked the people and companies for making the annual event possible.
