One of the top rated car collections in the world will be opening its doors to the public for one special day. The unique vehicles will be available for viewing as money and awareness is raised to support the programs of the American Cancer Society during an open house on Saturday, April 29, 10 am – 5 pm.
“We are thankful for the generosity the Lingenfelters and their ongoing support of our mission,” said Cheryl Donohoe, senior director corporate relations for the American Cancer Society. “The donations raised at this event will help the Society provide critical support to cancer patients through the many programs and services we offer, fund lifesaving research to save lives from cancer and enable us prevent cancer in our community and across the nation.”
The Lingenfelter Collection is a private collection of Ken and Kristen Lingenfelter. Over 200 distinctive vehicles, comprised of Corvettes, Muscle Cars and Exotics, fill the large, 40,000 Sq. ft., facility in Brighton. Each spring and fall, the Lingenfelters open the Collection to the public while raising support for important nonprofit organizations. This is the second consecutive year that the American Cancer Society has been chosen to be the recipient of the proceeds from the spring event.
The American Cancer Society relies on more than 100 years of evidence and proven results to prevent cancer, save lives, and diminish suffering from cancer. The organization provides the funds for cutting-edge cancer research that can lead to better treatments; advocates for better laws to help people locally and across the nation who are threatened by cancer; and helps patients and their families with their most pressing needs, including getting rides to treatment, navigating the health care system, and dealing with the side effects of treatment. Thanks in part to the Society’s work, there are nearly 14.5 million people alive in the United States alone who have survived cancer. In fact, more than 500 lives are being saved each day that would have otherwise been lost to cancer.
Guests attending the Open House will be able to support the Society by making a monetary donation at the door. Throughout the afternoon, Ken Lingenfelter will be signing a limited edition event poster, the 2017 Indy Show Car used to promote the Detroit Grand Prix will be on display, Dream Maker’s Automotive will have an exhibit and special show car for viewing, and door prizes will be awarded. Refreshments and food vendors, including Tony’s Dogs and Marconi’s Pizza, will also be available as guests browse the showroom. All open house proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
New to the event this year is an Adam’s Polishes Detail Clinic. Adam Pitale, Founder of Adam’s Polishes, will share tips and advice on proper/safe washing, machine polishing/swirl removal, and proper protection and maintenance.
