American Heritage Credit Union and BIG 98.1 on Sunday held the 19th Annual Car Show and Member Appreciation Day. Over 250 cars and more than 7,000 attendees came out to support the event, which raised $25,000 for the Kids-N-Hope Foundation.

The day featured hundreds of classic, muscle and modern show cars. Trophies were awarded to the top cars in the following categories: Antique, Modern, Muscle, Street, Stock, Modified, Imports and Exotics. Attendees enjoyed the 40-vendor craft show, visited the petting zoo and listened to BIG 98.1’s live broadcast.

All proceeds from the event support the foundation and its mission to enhance the lives of pediatric patients through health and life services, specifically music therapy. Since its inception more than 25 years ago, the foundation has donated over $3.1 million to these programs through area hospitals, including Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and other nonprofit organizations within the American Heritage Credit Union workplace partnership program.

“It was an exciting day, having the community as well as our members on campus to enjoy the festivities,” said Bruce K. Foulke, president and CEO of American Heritage and founder of the Kids-N-Hope Foundation. “Our Member Appreciation Day is a longstanding tradition which highlights our commitment to serving our membership as well as the local community. In addition, we are able to bring awareness to the Kids-N-Hope Foundation’s mission to positively impact child life services and provide creative outlets like music therapy to children undergoing medical treatment.”
