8th ANNUAL BERKELEY COLLEGE CHARITY CAR SHOW
RAISES MORE THAN $26,000 FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION
AND BOOMER ESIASON FOUNDATION
Car enthusiasts from across the tri-state area visited Berkeley College in Paramus on October 21 for the 8th Annual Charity Car Show. The show featured more than 375 classic and collector cars, and it raised more than $26,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Boomer Esiason Foundation.
“Thanks to a donation from Berkeley College and the involvement of many volunteers, this year’s Charity Car Show surpassed records from previous shows and raised a significant amount of money for this worthy cause,” said Robert Oddo, Berkeley College Senior Director of Enrollment, who organized the event.
The Charity Car Show featured more attractions and initiatives than in prior years, and included a blood drive, clowns, live music and a Halloween costume contest. The show was supported by a team of Berkeley College associates and students along with their families and friends.
Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States, and 70,000 people worldwide.
