Attendees were treated to a day of downtown Delaware fun as 675 classic vehicles of all makes and models lined the streets. In its 21st year, and 14th in the City of Delaware, the Vintage Auto Club’s “Blast From the Past” auto show continues to fundraise for Ohio Health Hospice while providing a day of family fun.
A daylong event, organizer Jim Clements estimates over $15,000 will be presented to Ohio Health Hospice in addition to the lifetime $209,000 already donated. Vintage Auto Club and its partners presented over 125 awards to participating cars, trucks and motorcycles.
A widely popular event, organizers struggle to count the number of attendees. “The number of attendees is something we are often asked but we have no idea of the count,” said Clements.
Another factor that is hard for Vintage Auto Club to put a number to is the amount of caring individuals and organizations that helped to make the event possible.
“The Vintage Auto Club members receive a lot of compliments on the Blast From The Past car show and a lot of that praise needs to be extended to all of our sponsors, the City, many volunteers, downtown businesses and the public for all the hospitality that is shown to the cruisers when they come into downtown Delaware. A big thank you to all,” said Clements.
