Oct. 16, 2010 – American Performance & Classic Car Show A Major Success By Don Fenton DAPA and Sewell really know how to throw a party.  Well in this case it was a car show that had a party feel.  On top of all of the fantastic weather, burgers and brats hot off the grill, and a wide array of fantastic American iron we were able to generate a little something for the effort. I would normally start to thank each and every person who was involved, both in the planning and then execution of the event, but just like last year we had so many people step up to help I would be afraid of missing someone.  We did manage to raise over $2200.00 for the American Cancer Society.  Much of the money raised was from a rather large donation from the Dutton family.  The other person who deserves a little shout out is Mark Waterman for donating the air compressor for the raffle from his NAPA Auto Parts store in McKinney.  We took in almost $600 for the raffle alone. The kids band Black Jack came out again to provide the live entertainment.  They were even better this year than last.  If there was one negative it would be that the representative from the American Cancer Society did not arrive until right before the awards.  I am pretty sure they would have pulled in another $400 in donations with just an hour of effort.  Something to remember for next year I guess. Thanks again for all who attended and made this show another glowing example of why we are simply the best.
