MORRIS – The Fall Classic Car Show put on by the Morris Lions Club drew more than 1,000 cars, which were displayed for thousands of spectators who came to the event.
The Car Corral offered deals on cars for sale, and the Swap Meet area was sold out, with vendors offering a wide variety of goods for sale, according to a news release from the club.
The raffle tickets for this year’s Morris Lions raffle car, a 1963 Chevy Impala, sold out before the winner, from Bolingbrook, was drawn at 3 p.m. The 50/50 tickets also sold out before the lucky winner, from Peru, was called at 3:15 p.m. This year, the 50/50 proceeds will be shared with the Grundy County Housing Authority.
Groups that helped organize a successful car show will receive donations at the car show appreciation dinner scheduled for Nov. 7.
The proceeds from the car show and raffles enable the Morris Lions to help the community. Last year, nearly $60,000 was donated by the Morris Lions to local groups or causes, or used for Lions projects to help people, according to the news release.
