On Sunday March 7, 2017 the Corvette Club of South Florida presented our 6th annual Corvette and Open Car & Truck Show at our sponsor’s dealership – Lou Bachrodt Chevrolet Coconut Creek. Once again, this year’s show was “spectacular” to say the least. We registered a record 321 cars and trucks, as well as one of the largest number of spectators in attendance to enjoy the day with us. Jumpin’ Jack Productions was again on hand with his assistance, as well as a great feature show by the “Blues Brothers”. The best DJ in all of Florida – “Scott the Music Man”, was there as usual for the day’s music & special announcements. An additional attraction again this year was a special dance presentation by the “South Florida Cloggers” – a group of young ladies who performed an entertaining dance repertoire. We had numerous vendors. We awarded 162 trophies in addition to over 400 door prizes, raffled 34 beautiful gift baskets, gave away a big screen TV, and had a great 50/50 raffle. Goody bags & dash plaques were given to all registered vehicles. Our amazing sponsor, Lou Bachrodt Chevrolet Coconut Creek, had a raffle with 2 chances to win a car – a pull on a slot machine to win a 2017 Corvette and a raffle ticket to win a beautiful 1974 red Jeep CJ5 – WHICH WAS WON! How many car shows do you go to where the dealership gives away a car!! They also provided free hot dogs, hamburgers, chips & waters which were served throughout the day for everyone attending our show to enjoy. The photo gallery of the day’s event can be viewed on our website under the Event Photos tab.
On Friday March 17, 2017 the Corvette Club of South Florida visited the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, FL. We were extremely pleased to present this great hospital with a donation check in the amount of $20,000. Our six year contributions have totaled $65,450. Once again we exceeded last year’s contribution and surpassed our goal. We are extremely proud that Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital has installed a plaque acknowledging the “Corvette Club of South Florida” in their hospital lobby. This recognizes our club for our contributions to their capital campaign. How very proud and thankful we are to donate to this great hospital for the children.
We are already moving forward with our plans for next year’s car show. We are extremely pleased to announce that on Sunday March 4, 2018, from 11 am – 5 pm the Corvette Club of South Florida, with its continuous support of our dedicated club sponsor, Lou Bachrodt Chevrolet Coconut Creek, will proudly present its 7th Annual Corvette and Open Car & Truck Show. We will continue to present one of South Florida’s premier and outstanding car shows. We will put the flyer up on our website once it has been finalized.
In closing, we continue to thank our proud & dedicated sponsor, Lou Bachrodt Chevrolet Coconut Creek, for all their continuous support and dedication in helping our club achieve its goals. We have a great partnership together. Please visit their showrooms in Coconut Creek and Pompano for the best deals on cars & trucks. You will be extremely pleased with their professionalism.
On behalf of myself, my fellow founding members – Vice President Howard Goldberg, Treasurer Tony Sotallaro, as well as our Board of Directors, club members & junior members, a special thanks to all of the car clubs and individuals who registered for our show. We could not have achieved our goal without your full support.
