Fueling Hope at the Melody Living Car Show to Benefit the Alzheimer’s Association

One of the best things about car shows is that you never know what you may find. One time it might be supercars, another time might be vintage muscle cars. A show might feature more domestic cars, but another might be filled with imports. Some shows feature particular models or styles, while others are just a free-for-all buffet of motoring goodness. And sometimes, the surprise isn’t in the cars, but in where the car show is being held, such as was the case with the Melody Living Car Show.

Melody Living, which operates an assisted living, memory care, and now newly-opened independent care living space in Lake in the Hills, recently held a car show to help raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.

This was definitely not your everyday car show, even beyond the location. Many of the residents worked on projects for the show, tie-dying purple shirts, sweatshirts, and other items to sell, as well as making bags of dog treats.

As car shows go, it was, not surprisingly, on the smaller side, but it was very well-rounded with a good variety of vehicles, both older and newer, domestic and import. Even if you frequent many of the local shows, you might have seen cars that you haven’t seen before as they did a good job of bringing car owners in from outside McHenry County.

A car show with the Batmobile isn’t unusual in our area, however, the replica Batmobile that was on display at this show was quite possibly the most pristine Batmobile I’ve ever seen. Needless to say, it provided a great backdrop for photos.

My hope for McHenry Life is to create a resource and destination for the residents and businesses of McHenry County alike. A place where residents can discover new places to explore, fun events and ways to spend time, and then share those experiences with others. A place where businesses can connect with existing and potential customers, and not simply market their businesses, but share their own unique stories.
