Last month, the team at Lange & Fetter Motors hosted our first-ever Annual Ford Car Show & Fundraiser. Folks from Trenton and the Quinte West community joined us right here at the Lange & Fetter dealership to enjoy music, BBQ, giveaways, and to check out some very cool vintage Fords.
To say that the event was a success is an understatement. We were excited (and heck, maybe a little nervous!) leading up to the big day, but the overwhelmingly positive energy and enthusiasm from the Trenton community truly helped make our Ford Car Show & Fundraiser a massive hit. Today on the blog, we’re sharing a few highlights and favourite moments from the event - and dreaming about when we can do it all again!
We welcomed a wide variety of vintage and custom Ford vehicles to the car show, and they (along with their owners) paraded onto the Lange & Fetter lot ready to strut their stuff. From extremely vintage (think 1920s and 1930s - nearly 100 years old!) to iconic 1960s to modern-day monster trucks and beyond, we were treated to some unique Ford vehicles that were the talk of the evening. And needless to say, the Lange & Fetter Customs crew were in their glory!
Grandview Pastures was on site treating attendees to mouthwatering BBQ hamburgers during the event. Grandview is a local, family-owned and operated farm with a mission towards sustainability, regenerative farming practices, and supplying Southern Ontario with nutritious (and delicious) animal food products. There is nothing quite like checking out vintage and custom cars with a juicy burger in hand - thanks for adding to the atmosphere, Grandview Pastures!
The Lange & Fetter Ford Car Show was free for all participants and attendees, but we asked that folks consider making a donation to our fundraiser for SickKids Foundation. On donations alone we raised $858.25 during the event, and the L&F team raised another $2,241.75, for a grand total of $3,000 going directly to SickKids Foundation. Well done, Trenton!
As an added bonus, we held a SickKids Donation draw, where one lucky winner took home a basket full of exciting prizes, all graciously donated by the local Trenton businesses. Thank you to DeeVa Spa Esthetics & Relaxation in Quinte West, Starbucks Trenton, and Trenton Deli & Bakery for your generous contributions to our prize basket.
More than anything, the Lange & Fetter Ford Car Show & Fundraiser was an opportunity for us to connect with our fellow community members, particularly after a tough year spent mostly apart. We laughed, talked, enjoyed food together, and looked under the hoods of some pretty cool cars. The entire team here at Lange & Fetter is proud to be a part of the Trenton and Quinte West community, and we would like to thank all of our participants and sponsors for helping to make our first-ever car show so spectacular. Until next year!
