Driven To Raise Money
Lake County’s No Name Car Club again partnered with Bruno’s Shop Smart in Lakeport to hold a car show which raised $412 for the Lakeport Senior Center. The free “Show and Shine” style car show was held in Bruno’s parking lot on October 12 with Bruno’s donating a variety of opportunity drive prizes. The No Name Car Club sold raffle tickets for the donations and the community anted up with the $412 in ticket purchases.
“Bruno’s is really generous,” said Club President Tony Barthel, “Once again they gave some terrific prizes including an entire New York Strip, a surf & turf dinner and more. They’re great people to partner with.”
“We’re really happy with the fact that we can hold a free car show and raise this much money for the Senior Center,” said the show’s founder and coordinator, Neil Dolce.
The No Name Car Club is a non-profit club that simply celebrates vehicles of all types and the enthusiasts that love them. The club has monthly open meetings for anyone who shares these feelings towards cars, trucks, military vehicles, classics, modern tuners, vintage trailers or anything else on tires. The open meetings are held each month on the Second Tuesday, generally at Woody’s Restaurant in Kelyseyville Lumber.
For more information about membership or the club, the public is encouraged to visit their website at www.TheNoNameCarClub.com.
The No Name Car Club has several events throughout the year including a car show alongside the Wood & Glory event in summer and the Bruno’s show in the Fall.
Club members celebrate the automobile in a variety of ways, from meticulously restored classics to wildly modified hot rods to trucks, tractors, military vehicles, modified modern vehicles, stock modern vehicles and simply just old cars. The diversity of vehicles among the membership is incredible.
In addition to the two shows every year, the club has a number of road trips and other participation events where members cruise to unique destinations, often in celebration of the automobile but sometimes just for picnics or other enjoyment.
For anyone who enjoys vehicles of any type, the open and friendly No Name Car Club is a great place to share that love.
