This past year, the Midwest Blue Oval Club has helped twelve charities in five different communities of various sizes and in two states. The total amount of all the donations combined is $15,035. This has been the most successful show seasons so far for the club and we could not have done it without all the sponsors that supports each show and the people who came out to show their vehicles and support our efforts to help the communities.
The Midwest Blue Oval Club wants to personally thank you for the most successful year to date. So please come out to one or more of our shows next year so we can thank you in person.
The Midwest Blue Oval Club was formed in 2014 by a group of Ford enthusiasts with the sole purpose of putting on All-Ford events around America’s heartland, and using the net proceeds of each to benefit charities within the townships or cities in which the events take place.
The Midwest Blue Oval Club will be hosting a car show along with an arts and crafts show on September 8th at the Dent County Courthouse square. Like previous shows, there will be a lot of activities going on during the and after the show and for the adults and kids. Proceeds from this event
