3rd Classic Car Festival in Randal Park
Goal: Fighting a Fatal Childhood Disease
One fine Sunday summer afternoon in 2010, the sun shone gloriously over the park next to Randel restaurant in Wellingsbüttel. Together, the service organization Old Table 300 and the NCL Foundation invited guests to a classic car festival to benefit children with NCL. A contingent of more than 40 vintage and classic cars drew pure enthusiasm and fascination from the numerous visitors. These classic cars from decades past drew over 500 visitors this year.
The opportunity to take a ride in one of the classics included such beloved automobiles as Ford Model As, Mercedes SEs, Lamborghinis and Jaguar E-Types.
A Prester motorcycle from 1925 was this year's oldest item on display, just a bit older than a Ford Model A from 1928, belonging to a member of the Schnauferl-Club. In addition to quality built Mercedes models, a Karman Ghia in Pampas yellow from 1969 and the original red lacquered 1976 Corvette Stingray drew many glances. Younger visitors in the audience were also keen on the Renault 5 Sport racing car from 1984 and a Lamborghini Superleggera.
Similar to last year, there was a well-attended raffle. This year, the raffle was able to raise €1,400 for research into NCL. We heartily thank actress Leonore Capell, who with wit and charm encouraged new and old attendees to take part.
Visitors were also greeted this year with the sweet musical notes of the band Serenaders. Their performance encouraged many to linger and dine on the terrace. Meridian Spa returned for another year as well, whose massage lounge pampered visitors for a good cause. Face painting was also an important draw for younger visitors, and JoJo the clown from Klinik Klown Hamburg e.V. enjoyed great popularity with the youngsters.
The NCL Foundation thanks the Old Table 300 for hosting this very successful event.
Our thanks also goes to all sponsors and supporters who have helped us in this magical classic car festival in Randel Park, which is just one of many events that funds research to develop a treatment for NCL.
