The Omaha Masonic Lodge recently hosted a unique event, “Classic Cars for a Cause,” in the heart of Millard, Nebraska. The inaugural charity car show was a spectacle of automotive history, featuring 99 classic cars that roared back to life in the Hobby Lobby parking lot.
The event, a brainchild of A.J. Madsen and his team, was not just about showcasing vintage cars but also about giving back to the community. The chosen beneficiary for this year was the Nebraska Humane Society, a cause close to the hearts of the lodge members. “Our lodge is filled with animal lovers. What better way to express our love for animals than by supporting a cause that directly benefits them?” said Madsen.
The event was promoted extensively on various social media platforms, drawing a large crowd of car enthusiasts and animal lovers alike. The cause was even more pertinent given the recent flooding that has affected the region, putting additional strain on the resources of the Humane Society.
While donations from the public were entirely voluntary, the event managed to raise significant funds. All proceeds, along with collected items such as towels, blankets, and animal toys, were donated to the Nebraska Humane Society. This gesture of support underscores the lodge’s commitment to the welfare of animals and the community at large.
In conclusion, the “Classic Cars for a Cause” event was a resounding success, combining the love for classic cars with a noble cause. It served as a platform for the community to come together, appreciate the beauty of vintage automobiles, and contribute to a worthy cause.
