BERKELEY COLLEGE CHARITY CAR SHOW
BENEFITS CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION
Classic and collector cars were out in force at the 5th Annual Charity Car Show at Berkeley College in Paramus, NJ. The show featured nearly 200 cars and raised more than $18,000, including a matching donation by the College to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
“It is with great pride that I report that the $18,303 raised at this year’s Charity Car Show broke our previous records,” said Robert Oddo, Berkeley College Paramus Campus Director of Admissions, who organized the event.
The event was supported by a team of volunteers and featured a blood drive, magicians, clowns, and a Halloween costume contest.
