June 3 auto show near Milton to raise money for Shriner's hospital The Eighth Annual Car, Truck andMotorcycleShowwillbeheld from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, June3,atthecornerofRoute1and Route 5 near Milton. Rain date is Sunday, June 4. All proceeds will go to the Shriner's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. The hospital's highly trained team of medical specialists care for the most routine to the rarely seen pediatric orthopedic conditions and spinal cord injuries. Children up to 18 are eligible for care at Shriner's hospitals. Acceptance is based solely on a child's medical needs, regardless of the families' ability to pay. "It's a great cause and it helps kids," said Rick Aydelotte, chair- man of the event, sponsored by Endeavor Lodge #17 of Milton, which has raised over $60,000 over the past seven years for charity. This will be the second year the proceeds have gone to the Philadelphia hospital. The money raised this year will be used to help purchase a mobile X-ray unit for the hospital's op- erating rooms. According to Aydelotte, the car show offers something for everyone in the family. The main event is the auto show, with vin- tage cars, trucks and motorcycles on display. "Some of the en- tries in the past included vintage cars that have been rebuilt from the ground up. It's not like they bought the car in 1962 and then stored it away," he said. "The event includes a motorcycle pro- cession with police escort from Rommel's Seaford Harley to the event on Route 1." Trophies will be given for top finishers as well as cash prizes for Best in Show. Judges will choose winners based on select criteria including condition of cars. All cars must be driven to the contest. Towed vehicles will not be eligible. Cars, trucks and motorcycles can register for $15. There will be food vendors, a DJ and cornhole competition. Arts and crafts will be for sale, and there will be 50/50 draw- ings and an auction of donated items.
