Members from the Olympic Vintage Auto Club braved the cold last week to attend what has become an annual event — donating funds to the Central Kitsap Food Bank at its Silverdale location.

The CK Food Bank was one of four food banks that received a check for $1,000 from the car club.

The others were North Kitsap Fishline, South Kitsap Helpline and the St. Vincent DePaul food bank.

Hoyt Burrows, executive director of the Central Kitsap Food Bank accepted the donation last week.

Denise Agee of the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank also was on hand to receive a check for $1,000.

Representing the Olympic Vintage Auto Club were Cig and Bonnie Chrey with their 1949 Cadillac, Ted and Charline Austin with their 1934 Packard and Jim and Val Barnes with their 1941 Buick.

Also on hand were Don Janssen and his 1966 Cadillac and Fred and Ann Sears with their 1940 Buick.

The car club oftens shows vehicles at local events and some share their antique cars by riding in parades.

The group raises funds to donate through car shows and community events.
