Restored Rusty Relics Donations to Charity
from the 2018 North Jersey Auto Show
at Bergen Community College in Paramus, NJ
The Restored Rusty Relics hold the 2018 North Jersey Auto Show partly to raise money for charity; traditionally, three or four charities are chosen. Some of the proceeds from each show are kept as “seed money” for the next show; if it rains on Show Day, charitable contributions will be smaller or may not be possible at all. The 2018 show was held under cloudy skies; enough people and vendors either pre-registered, attended, or acted as sponsors (Teterboro Auto Mall [Jeep, Ram, Dodge, Chrysler] • Doyle’s Auto and 4x4 • the Classic Car Hotel (indoor storage) • and LocoMotion PowerSports) to provide donations for three charities.

The Shelter takes in strays and lost pets from towns within Bergen County, and makes them available for adoption — providing inoculations and helping them to find new homes. The Shelter has a no-kill philosophy.
Every year, the shelter helps thousands of cats and dogs find adopted homes, and returns hundreds of lost pets to their owners.

Julie from Table to Table, one of the fine charities to gain from our North Jersey Auto Show, was kind enough to come to our meeting in person — here she is with Dick Naumann and a check! Table to Table is a highly efficient nonprofit which collects food that would normally be thrown out, and uses it to serve hungry New Jerseyans.
