Vintage Motorcar Series to honor dads June 19

The Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Series is offering a new way to honor fathers and father figures this Father’s Day while giving back to the children and families served by Klingberg Family Centers.

An array of fathers’ smiling faces will line Fatherhood Drive at the Klingberg Motorcar Drive-Thru Event on Saturday, June 19, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 370 Linwood St., New Britain. For a donation of $100, individuals can send in a photo of a dad, grandfather, or a significant father figure to be turned into an 18-inch x 30-inch sign and posted along Fatherhood Drive during the event (two or more signs: $75 each). The sign will be available to pick up after the show.

“The Vintage Motorcar Series is all about families,” said Mark Johnson, vice president of Klingberg Family Centers. “We are excited to celebrate Father’s Day weekend by honoring dads at our show in this new, fun way.”

Show cars will be positioned throughout the campus, and spectators will drive their own vehicles along a predetermined route to view the show. To learn more, visit

Funds raised by the show benefit Klingberg Family Centers, a private nonprofit providing help to thousands of children and families throughout Connecticut each year whose lives have been traumatized by abuse and/or neglect. For more information, visit
