BURKE MOTOR GROUP HOSTS SUCCESSFUL VIRTUAL CAR SHOW, RAISES FUNDS FOR LOCAL VETERANS

Published Tuesday, July 28, 2020

CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – Due to the challenging situation surrounding COVID-19, Burke Motor Group decided to take its annual Car, Truck & Cycle Show virtual for 2020. In the spirit of community service, this format enabled Burke to continue to support local Veterans, as the show does every year, and provide car show enthusiasts with a way to take part and enjoy this great tradition. 

This year's event benefitted Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 955, raising a total of $5,460 for the organization. The event included a virtual view of 135 cool cars, trucks and cycles, a virtual concert by renowned musician Keith Hickman, virtual vendors and a virtual auction. Participants were able to vote for Best In Show, Best Motorcycle, Best Truck and Top 10. Sturdy Savings Bank continued their role as presenting sponsor. 

Burke Motor Group’s innovative concept received national attention from the car show listing company Car Show Safari, headquartered in California. The virtual nature of our event allowed participants from all over the country, including California, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Massachusetts, Colorado, Nevada, South Carolina, North Carolina, Connecticut, Kansas, Michigan, Louisiana, Illinois, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. 

Francey Burke, Founder and Director of Burke Motor Group’s Car, Truck & Cycle Show, shares, “We were very pleased to continue our Car Show tradition and present this innovative virtual format while preserving our ability to raise funds for our local Veterans.”
