WHIPPANY – From devoted automobile enthusiasts to casual onlookers and families, there will be something for everyone at the 10th annual Two Kids Foundation Charity Car Show, which once again will draw hundreds of classic and custom cars to Morris County to raise money for families of pediatric cancer patients, on Sunday, Aug. 7.
In addition to classic antique vehicles, muscle cars and sports cars, entered by owners from throughout New Jersey and the region, the show will also feature specialty cars such as the Batmobile (from the 1960s TV series), the Scooby Doo Van and the Dracula Car.
New to the show this year will be an appearance and autograph signing by actor Butch Patrick, best known for his role of “Eddie Munster,” on the classic television series “The Munsters.”
Atlantic Health System’s Goryeb Children’s Hospital will again sponsor the car show, joined by Wigder Chevrolet and Warnock Automotive Group. 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 find pediatric patients whose families are in need of assistance to benefit from the event.
The event, as well as an annual dinner dance held in the fall, has allowed the Two Kids Foundation to assist numerous families since the group’s creation a decade ago. The foundation was inspired by the community support for the son of foundation executive director Woody DeTrolio, who was diagnosed with leukemia at age 17, as well as his son’s fascination with classic cars.
“We’re so happy with the enthusiasm that the event has been shown year after year, from the car owners to the spectators and families who come out to see them, to all of the volunteers and sponsors who make the show happen,” DeTrolio said. “Their support over the last decade has helped us create a legacy of kindness that will be remembered by so many families. We look forward to continuing this legacy for many years to come.”
Radio personalities and the street team from WDHA 105.5 FM, along with live musical performances and a DJ will be featured at the event, as well as fun activities and games for kids.
The event will take place at The Birchwood Manor, 111 North Jefferson Road in Whippany from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Day-of-show registration for car and driver is $25. There is a $5 charge for spectator parking, but admission is free.
