The VA Fall Classic is an annual VPCCC sponsored event that benefits CHKD. Yesterday, I received the following "press release" from the President:

Proceeds from the 5th Annual Virginia Fall Classic Charity Events held in the City of Newport News during the weekend of October 26-28, 2007 were donated to the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD).

A little rain doesn’t stop great people from giving! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The Car and Bike Show and many other events held this past year were a resounding financial success, and the proceeds were donated to CHKD to assist with their Peninsula projects, in particular a pediatric X-ray unit.

On behalf of the Virginia Peninsula Car Club Council, the Newport News Police Department, and the Newport News Parks, Recreation and Tourism, we would like to donate to CHKD $47,146.22. ($35,519.07 was donated in 2006, $30,084.80 was donated in 2005, $18,454.31 was donated in 2004 & $9,100.00 was donated in 2003. The five year total is $ $140,304.40!

We would like to take this opportunity to personally thank all the sponsors, vendors, the dedicated hard working volunteers, all event participants, and the citizens of our community who support our Annual Virginia Fall Classic Charity Events. With the help and support of these fine people we are proud and able to make this donation.

In addition, we would like to express our thanks to the administrators, doctors, nurses, staff, and volunteers at CHKD for the wonderful work they do for the children and families in a time of medical crises. We wish each of you a Happy Holiday Season. Thank You.

This year, my wife and I were fortunate enough to be able to volunteer at the show. Next year, we will be on the Executive Planning Committee, so you can bet I'll be pushing the event.
