On Sunday March 1, 2015 the Corvette Club of South Florida presented its spectacular 4th annual Corvette and Open Car & Truck Show at our sponsor’s dealership – Lou Bachrodt Chevrolet in Coconut Creek. This year’s show was “spectacular” to say the least. We registered 289 cars and trucks, as well as one of the largest number of spectators on hand to enjoy the day with us. Jumpin’ Jack Productions was again on hand with his assistance, as well as a feature show by the “Blues Brothers”. The best DJ in all of Florida – “Scott the Music Man”, was on hand as usual for the day’s music & special announcements. An added attraction this year was a special dance presentation by the “South Florida Cloggers” – a group of young ladies who performed an outstanding and most enjoyable dance repertoire. We awarded 100 trophies in addition to over 130 door prizes, raffled 26 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. We had numerous vendors as well as other special interest items. Free hot dogs, hamburgers, chips & drinks 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 20, 2015 the Corvette Club of South Florida again 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 $12,500. Our four year contributions have totaled $31,450. We exceeded last year’s contribution and surpassed our goal. We are extremely proud to announce that Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital will install a plaque showing “Corvette Club of South Florida” in their hospital lobby. This will recognize our club for our contributions to their capital campaign. How very proud and thankful we are to donate to this great hospital and the children.
We are moving forward with our plans for next year’s car show. We are extremely pleased to announce that on Sunday March 6, 2016, from 11 am – 5 pm the Corvette Club of South Florida, with its continuous support of our dedicated club sponsor, Lou Bachrodt Chevrolet, will proudly present its 5th Annual Corvette and Open Car & Truck Show. We will continue to present one of South Florida’s premier and outstanding car shows. Please continue to check our website for when we add our 2016 car show flyer which will cover all the details of the show.
In closing, we continue to thank our proud & dedicated sponsor, Lou Bachrodt Chevrolet, 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.
