Got a phone call the other day from Steve Plunkett who organizes the Fleetwood Cruze-In, the huge car show-cum-rock-concert event he holds at his estate near London Ontario every year. We covered this in Wheels a couple of weeks ago.
The numbers are in, and this year's event raised $345,000 for some 27 different charities, up from $305,000 last year.
Impressive, but doubly so considering the general state of the economy.
This brings his total to something like $1,328,000 for the event in its six years of operation.
Good on you, Steve, and on the generous car fans who attend this show.
Steve hasn't formally announced the date of next year's Cruze-In, but if you've got next year's Day Book or scheduler handy, pencil in the first Saturday of June 2011.
