What’s better to do on a lazy summer day in July than attend a car show! Even better, a car show that benefits a local cause. This is a family, fundraising event!!!

There will be 100+ classic, exotic and antique cars on display. Entertainment, food trucks and a silent auction too. Police cars, fire engine, SWAT truck will be provided by the local police department will also be on site for kids, young and old, to check out.

Cars for a Cause chairman Patrick Droste MD is a pediatric ophthalmologist practicing in Grand Rapids for over 30 years. He not only has a love for his patients but for cars. AJ Dufendach, co-chair, is the owner of Garage Kept Motors and has partnered with his father-in-law to host this event at their new showroom.

Proceeds will benefit Opportunities Unlimited for the Blind (OUB). OUB is an organization that assists blind and visually impaired children and adults be successful in the sighted world by hosting summer camps, teachings skills of daily living such as cooking, navigating the work world, learning how to manage the bus system, etc. Proceeds will also benefit the Pediatric Retinal Research Foundation. This organization, located in Michigan, conducts research on blindness; causes, prevention, treatment, and potential restoration. We will have informative representatives and booths set up to demonstrate/explain the various eye diseases that cause blindness, what the foundation is currently involved in, and what resources we have in our community. The members of the Grand Rapids Lion’s Club will also be our partners in putting this event to together.

Entertainment will be provided by not only a lively local DJ, but very talented musicians who are blind or have low vision.

Keep checking back for updates. And please share with any and all family and friends. Thank you.
