Proceeds of 10th annual event to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association
CLEARFIELD, Pa. – The Leonard Street Car and Bike Show will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Sunday, May 20 with proceeds to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
Colonial Courtyard at Clearfield once again will host the popular event, which traditionally has featured as many as 20 classifications of cars and bikes. Most years, 50 or more vehicles participate in the show held in the parking lot of the senior living community.
Registration will be from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with the show set to run until 2:30 p.m. Awards and trophies will be presented at 3 p.m. The show is open to the public and car clubs are welcome.
“We are excited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of this great event,” said Rebecca Dale, Executive Director of Colonial Courtyard at Clearfield. “The car and bike show generates support for a cause that is very important to the residents and team at Colonial Courtyard at Clearfield.”
“During the previous nine years, the show has attracted so many outstanding vehicles and brought many car enthusiasts to our community,” added Sandy English, Director of Sales and Marketing at Colonial Courtyard at Clearfield. “Whether you visit to see the vintage cars that reveal a bit of history regarding the auto industry or if you’re here to check out the motorcycles, there is something for everyone. We have muscle cars and more modern cars and bikes. There is a lot to take in.”
Last year’s car show raised $1,622.75 for the Alzheimer’s Association. The total continued a trend in which the event has increased its fundraising efforts over the past four years.
In 2016 the show raised $1,047.15, an increase over the $931 raised in 2015, and $925 on a rainy day in 2014.
In the past seven years, Colonial Courtyard at Clearfield and the Leonard Street Car Show helped raise $7,401.90 for the Alzheimer’s Association.
The vehicle entry fee is a donation of $5. Concessions will be sold from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with all proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Association.
“The Leonard Street Car Show has evolved over the years and continues to be a successful fund-raising event for the Alzheimer’s Association,” said Joanie Taylor, Business Office Assistant at Colonial Courtyard at Clearfield and one of the event organizers. “Car enthusiasts look forward to the show each year and it continues to grow.
