Calling All Car Enthusiasts: Forgotten Teens Car Show September 24

Do you have a car you like to show off? Or a vehicle you’ve invested a lot of time and money into you want to show off? Are you a car enthusiast who enjoys exhaust fumes or enjoy talking to people about their rides? East Aurora DECA will be holding their third annual car show to benefit the Forgotten Teens Project on Saturday, September 24 at Goody’s Restaurant in Aurora. The show will run from 9 am until 3 pm with registration ending at 12 Noon.

DECA started the Forgotten Teens Project nearly 20 years ago as a way to make sure their fellow Tomcats would have a Merry Christmas. Students who are homeless or facing other hardships are anonymously presented with Christmas gifts purchased through funds raised by East Aurora DECA members as a way to remember the season is about giving. Last year we were able to assist 70 students with $45 gift cards. This year we will focus on assisting our homeless population which has grown from 10-25 students in the past three years as they are truly forgotten by society.

DECA will hold the show at Goody’s Restaurant on the corner of North Farnsworth and East Indian Trail. Parking for show participants will be available in the field next to Goody’s and entry through the Old Second Parking Lot on Reckinger Street is available. Motorcycles are welcome, and trophies will be awarded to the Top 10, Best of Show, Club Choice, and Best Holiday Theme. Cash giveaways and prizes will be awarded and food available. Registration is $10 per registered vehicle and donations are accepted. Spectators are welcome to come out and enjoy the event! For more information please contact DECA advisor Mark Lyons at mlyons@d131 or by phone at 630-997-6982. Come out and enjoy music, food, and cars with DECA’s Forgotten Teens Car Show at Goody’s Restaurant in Aurora on Saturday, September 24.
