Warwick, Rhode Island – September 21-23, 2018
The 2018 “Pontiac Celebration” Eastern Regional Meet was a huge success, setting all new records. Once again, our event has grown in the number of great Pontiacs showing, and the number of Pontiac hobbyists enjoying this special weekend gathering.
Not forgetting the purpose of this event– “Pontiacs with a Purpose”– many gave their time, energy, and contributions to our children’s cancer charities: Alex’s Lemonade Stand foundation for childhood cancer and The Tomorrow Fund helping children and families affected by cancer. To date nearly $50,000 has been donated by “A Pontiac Celebration” from 2010 through 2018. All because of our generous Pontiac enthusiasts. Proving how great Pontiac people are!
While a few Pontiac lovers arrived as early as Thursday to help with the event, many more rolled in Friday to participate in our area-wide “Teddy Bear Cruise” that evening. Live music, food, and drink attracted many great cars of all types, makes, and models cruising in for the fun.
The big event was the All Pontiac Car Show on Saturday. Sunny Fall weather made for a great day. We were happy to see 255 beautiful Pontiacs on the show field. Once again many local and surrounding area Pontiac Clubs came in force to make our event a huge success. We thank everyone for their support. As our event has grown in cars showing, so has the Saturday banquet awards dinner. The evening’s sprawling BBQ dinner spread was enjoyed by a hungry crowd after a full day of fun and activities. But the high point of the banquet was when the many awards were given out to all who worked so hard preparing their cars.
Top award of the evening– People’s Choice– went to Keith Bailey with his beautiful 1910 Oakland. In addition, the Vacation Raffle saw a lucky winner heading off to a luxury condo vacation in the mountains of New Hampshire.
