Classic car show helps Empowering youth

Dave Niley, Kenny Erwin and the Rolling 50s Classic Car Club wrapped up their 35th Annual Fall Cruise-In Car Show with donations to three deserving entities: The Shriners Hospitals, Cancer Association of Darke County and Empowering Darke County Youth.

Coming off a successful event Sept. 9, the Club was able to improve on its donations the previous two years. Its first support was given to an “idea” in 2015; in 2016, the club supported the official Empowering Darke County Youth organization as its inaugural After School Program was about to begin.

“Hopefully we can do even better next year,” Erwin said. Once again, Empowering is preparing for its second After School Program to begin.

The 2017 Rolling 50s Classic Car Show featured over 500 vehicles, with excellent weather bringing out major crowds. One of the organizers noted early in the afternoon that they were running out of spaces for the entries.

The car club holds several shows a year for classic car enthusiasts and, according to Niley, all proceeds go to deserving organizations. “We love what we do and we love helping the community,” he said.

The Empowering Darke County Youth Mission: Empowering Darke County Youth provides After School and Summer Tutoring programs to assist students in the areas of language arts and math with the goal of Strong Students for a Strong Community.
