Since inception as a club in June 2014, the Midwest Blue Oval Club has donated over $39,800 to various charities in several communities.

Thank you so much to everyone who attended, supported, or donated! This was a record breaking year for the Midwest Blue Oval Club. We were able to donate to 12 charities in 5 different communities with a total of $15,085. We can’t tell you how much each of these charities appreciate their donations from the club and from people who came out to one or more of our shows. Several of them were either close to closing or in one case was closed.

Without your support, we would not have been able to have a record breaking year. We are already hard at work planning for this up coming year shows. Please come out again and help us support even more charities in these communities.
