11th Annual Virginia Fall Classic Nets Over $44,000 for Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters
Proceeds from the 11th Annual Virginia Fall Classic Charity Events held in the City of Newport News during the weekend of October 25-27, 2013 were donated to the Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters (CHKD).
A fantastic weekend with gorgeous weather and Dennis Gage of "My Classic Car" helped bring out a very large group of enthusiasts and spectators. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The Car Show and many other charity events held this past year were a resounding financial success, and the proceeds were donated to CHKD.
On behalf of the Virginia Peninsula Car Club Council, the Newport News Police Department, and the Newport News Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department, we would like to donate to CHKD $44,100.00. The eleven year total from these events is $375,866.67!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the sponsors, vendors, the dedicated hard-working volunteers, all event participants, and the citizens of our community who support our Annual Virginia Fall Classic Charity Events and the many other events though out the year for CHKD. With the help and support of these fine people we are proud and able to make this donation.
In addition, we would like to express our thanks to the administrators, doctors, nurses, staff, and volunteers at CHKD for the wonderful work they do for the children and families in times of medical crisis. We wish each of you a Happy Holiday Season. Thank You.
We hope to see you at our 12th Annual Virginia Fall Classic!
Harold "Hal" Hartel
President, Virginia Peninsula Car Club Council
