Providing Peace Of Mind

K|H Quarterly Newsletter

Despite gloomy forecasts, we had lovely weather and a great turnout, with over 40 cars on display. Every year, 100% of show proceeds benefit a charity, and this year we raised more donations than in the history of our show! The charity chosen this year was Barrington Youth & Family Services, which provides a wide range of counseling, preventative programming, and education to improve the mental health of the community. The event also featured several booths featuring free wine, whiskey, bacon tasting stations, and delicious food and drinks were available courtesy of our host, The Club at Wynstone.

The Flora Family, with their beautiful 1960 Bentley S2, were the winners of the Best in Show contest which was voted on by attendees. Over 30 years ago, the Floras bought this automobile on their honeymoon in Europe. After their trip, they had it shipped back to the U.S. and have kept it ever since. Winning a car show was always on their bucket list and they finally achieved it – and this was the first car show they ever entered. They felt honored to have won among all the other prestigious vehicles at the show.
