Thank You To Everyone Who Helped Make the 16th Annual Car Show Benefit a Huge Success
On Saturday, August 6, Ft. Thomas Corvette Club hosted the 16th Annual Wood Hudson Car Show Benefit which supports the Undergraduate Research Education Program (UREP). An estimated 500 people attended the event to see over 177 cars, trucks, and motorcycles grace the parking lot at the Hofbrauhaus Restaurant and on Saratoga Street in Newport, KY. Guests also had an opportunity to take their chance on bidding on 39 silent auction packages. This year's event netted $20,875.
Wood Hudson wishes to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all members of the Ft. Thomas Corvette Club for your hard work for once again putting on this wonderful car show. Thank you also to the Hofbrauhaus Restaurant for opening up your doors and parking lot to this fundraiser.
