WHIPPANY, NJ - The annual Two Kids Foundation Charity Car Show, one of the area’s premiere events of its kind, will mark its 13th year of drawing spectators throughout the region to see hundreds of classic and custom cars while supporting families of pediatric cancer patients on Sunday, Aug. 3.
In addition to the hundreds of classic, muscle, sports and TV specialty cars, the event will feature fun activities and games for kids, live musical performance and DJ, vendors, and a food court.
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 identify pediatric patients whose families are in need of assistance.
The car show is the foundation’s primary fundraising event, and has allowed the organization to assist numerous families during difficult times in their lives and the lives of their children for more than a decade. The foundation also hosts an annual dinner dance.
“The support we receive throughout the year, especially at the car show, is a great source of relief to the many families we help,” said Glenn Wiederman, executive director of the Two Kids Foundation. “The turnout from car owners and spectators each year is both humbling and motivates us to serve these families in need.”
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.
The show will take place on Sunday, Aug. 3 or on Aug. 10 as a rain date and will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Birchwood Manor, 111 Jefferson Road, Whippany.
Registration starts at 8:00 a.m. and ends at noon. Pre-registration for car and driver is $25 and day-of-show for car and driver is $30. There is a $10 parking fee for spectators.
