The Wheels on the Waterfront Car Show committee on Oct. 3 presented a check for $6,600 to the Providence General Foundation to benefit the Cancer Patient Assistance Fund.
The donation represented the proceeds of the Sept. 7 classic car show — nearly four times what the group raised last year, and $1,600 above its goal.
The car show was created last year to promote the Port of Everett marina and waterfront, as well as to benefit a charity.
Event organizers credited participants, vendors, volunteers and sponsors. Major sponsors were Brien Ford, Dwayne Lane’s Family of Auto Centers, Pignataro Volkswagon, Verne Allen and All Battery Sales and Service, Scuttlebutt Restaurant and Brewery, Harbor Marine, Ron May Towing, Hoglund’s Top Shop, KRKO Radio (1380 AM) and Jeff Shade’s “Talk About Cars” show, Columbia Bank, Country Farms, Bayside Marine, Ed Rubatino, Holiday Inn, H&L Sports, Screen Printing NW, Marysville Awards and Gifts, Port of Everett, and the Providence General Foundation.
