Presented by David Dick and Brian Beatty of the Limestone City Car Club
Founders David Dick and Brian Beatty organized the first Limestone City Car Classic in September 2013 with all proceeds to benefit the Kingston Melanoma Cancer Clinic in memory of Brian’s daughter Melonie, who passed away from this disease at the age of 35. It was their intention to not only bring car enthusiasts together, but to bring awareness to the public about the prevention and detection of this disease, as well as assist in funding the KGH clinic. 125 cars attended the show in the first year.
With much determination, loyal sponsors and many dedicated volunteers over the past 6 years, this car show has become an important annual event, outgrowing its humble beginnings.
Car attendance has grown to approximately 400 vehicles, ranging from early 1900’s to present day, from both sides of the border, in 24 different classes. Trophies are awarded to the top three in each category. Spectator numbers have increased to 2,000 people, who have enjoyed the cars, raffles, food, vendors, music and the beautiful grounds of Lake Ontario Park.
Since 2013, the Limestone City Car Club has donated in excess of $50,000 to the Melanoma Clinic, under the guidance of David and Brian, as well as the continued support from main sponsors Petrie Ford, Kingston, Keystone Automotive Products and several local businesses who have kindly donated thousands of dollars in raffle prizes.
In 2018 a patient room at the Melanoma Clinic was dedicated in Melonie’s name on behalf of the Limestone City Car Club and the incredibly generous donations from both car show participants and spectators over the past 6 years. This event has truly become one of the premiere attractions in the Kingston area for all car enthusiasts.
