The event featured a DJ, The Big Beat Band, food, activities for the kids, and dozens of hot rods, classics, customized, and stock vehicles ranging from vintage to a gull wing DeLorean complete with its space age “flux capacitor.” Mr Marcuccio, who has been organizing car shows since 1997 for food pantries in the communities served by his stores, said his event in Newtown raised $10,000 in food and cash donations.
