'Autorama success supports causes'

Print Article

The Beloit Evening Lions Club would like to thank the members, relatives, and friends of the Coachmen Street Rod Club, Blue Ribbon Classic Chevy Club, XLR8 Car Club and the Rock Valley Mustang Club for their time, talents and excellent work in helping to present a successful 42nd Annual Beloit Autorama.

A big thank you also goes out to the members of the Beloit Noon Lions Club, Beloit Lioness Club, Beloit Leos Club, and the South Beloit Lions Club for their fine support of the show. This year's Autorama had 1,123 show cars, 71 vehicles in the car corral, 176 vendor spaces sold and about 6,000 spectators attending on a day that was very hot and humid.

The members of all the clubs would like to give a big thank you to all the participants, vendors, and spectators who came out to support the show. It is your dedication to the show that makes it worth all the year long effort to present such a high caliber show.

The estimated net proceeds from this year's show will be donated to community organizations such as Beloit Meals on Wheels, Hospice, Caritas, Stateline YMCA/SYSA Sports Complex, Big Brothers/Big Sisters and also Lions programs to aid the visually handicapped and hearing impaired. The Beloit Evening Lions Club has received $897,066 from the past 41 Beloit Autorama's.

A big thank you also goes to the Town of Beloit for their use of Preservation Park to present the show and to the Town of Beloit Police and EMT's for their fine help at the show.

The Beloit Evening Lions Club would like to thank its members, their relatives and friends and anyone else who helped make this year's event a successful show.
