PIQUA — The First Annual Edison State Car Show will be held on Saturday, July 14, from noon to 3 p.m. at the college’s Piqua Campus. Proceeds from the event will help support the Edison State women’s softball team. In the event of rain, the show will be held on Sunday, July 15.
Registration for the show will begin at 10 a.m. and the first 50 vehicles in attendance will receive dash plaques. Cost is $10 per vehicle and motorcycles are also welcome.
The event includes music, food, door prizes and a 50/50 drawing. Thirty trophies will be handed out at 3 p.m., including the President’s Choice Award, presented by Edison State president Dr. Doreen Larson.
The Edison State women’s softball team had their first season this year, in a very brisk and snowy spring, which held them at a disadvantage. “A lot of the teams that we played went to Florida and played before coming back here and starting the season,” stated head softball Coach Dan Cain. “We didn’t do that, so it was tough.”
Proceeds from the Edison State Car Show will go toward a trip to Georgia in February so that the ladies can play before the start of their second season.
If you have any questions about the event or the women’s softball team, please contact Coach Dan Cain at (937) 570-2630.
