Car Show at Hy-Vee Helps Out in More Ways Than One

By  | 

Many car buffs came out to the Hy-Vee on 48th and Leighton to show off their cars and take a peek at what others have done to theirs.

Jimmy Brown of Lincoln, makes it a family event, “I brought all my family, I always bring them out to car shows, they can see different things, different vehicles.”

“It’s a really good feeling to know that myself and all the guys that help and volunteer can take the few week of work to get this together and raise money for such a good cause,” says Mark Nagengast, who is a produce manager for Hy-Vee.

They raised nearly $2,000 for the juvenile diabetes research foundation and rebuilding of Norris High School, which was destroyed by tornadoes. Some agree that car shows like this should happen more often.

“Instead of just goofing off on the weekends, do something, do something valuable with your time,” says Connie Davison.

Davison is planning a benefit car show of her own, she ’s raising money for a new playground in Malcolm. Everyone is glad they could be a part of this successful event.
