Shiny new Lamborghinis, classic Corvettes, and timeless Mustangs were among the approximately 130 vehicles that took part in Saturday’s Bayland Classic Auto Show at Jim Olson Motors on Saturday. All of the proceeds of the annual event support D.A.R.E – The Drug Abuse Resistance Education program for students in Door County schools.
Door County Sheriff’s Department Juvenile Investigator Chris Neuville heads up D.A.R.E and the annual event. He says this year’s show went better than any he’s seen in his eight-year’s leading the D.A.R.E program.
In addition to the vehicles on display, Neuville and fellow officers were grilling up food and selling non-alcoholic beverages to show visitors.
Neuville says the D.A.R.E program isn't paid for at all by county taxpayers. Funds only come from events like the auto show.
D.A.R.E was first founded in Los Angeles in 1983, and is now present in about 75% of America’s schools. Its mission is to prevent the use of controlled drugs, membership in gangs, and violent behavior.
