On June 14th 2017 I attended the Cars For A Cause event at Iron Gate Motor Condos as a guest of my friends and event sponsors Chicago Motor Cars. The event was put on by Dave & Dawn Kelsch and George & Julie Mann, benefiting Loaves & Fishes Community Services along with 360 Youth Services.
Founded by local commercial building developer Tom Burgess, Iron Gate Motor Condos is a community of garage condominiums where collectors and enthusiasts can store their vehicles and enjoy the comradery of other car nuts. The perfect setting for an amazing evening.
This was the 3rd year for the Cars for a Cause event. “This year we raised over $110,000” reported event organizer Dave Kelsch. “We want to raise awareness for two very worthy community organizations and allow people to just enjoy themselves in a unique venue.”
The night was filled with fine wine, local beer and hors d’oevers but I was there for the amazing vehicles! Some of the cars included:
