Design Engineering Inc. (DEI) teamed up with the City of Avon Lake in Ohio to host a day-long cruise-in on June 10 that was deemed by organizers as a huge success. Mayor Gregory Zilka and the team at DEI reported that over 500 attended the event held at Weiss Baseball Fields located across the street from DEI headquarters.
The Cruise-in raised more than $500 for the Love-A-Stray Animal Shelter through a 50/50 raffle and a product give-away raffle.
This was our second Cruise-in event and we were ecstatic that this year the City of Avon Lake wanted to make this a co-hosted event and offered the use of Weiss Fields for the cruise-in. We couldn’t have been more pleased at the turnout,” said Tom Miller, DEI vice president of sales and marketing.
The Cruise-in began with a convoy of classics rolling in to Avon Lake from throughout the Midwest. A local band, The GeezCats played music from the ‘50s and ‘60s, followed by It’s Show Time DJ Services playing tunes from noon to 6 p.m. Revolution Pie, a Beatles tribute band that has opened for Paul McCartney at Rock N Roll Hall of Fame, played from 6 to 9 p.m.
“We appreciate so much all that made this event a success,” Miller said. “Already, we have ideas on how to make next year’s event even better.”
