First Edison State Car Show to benefit softball team
The first Edison State Car Show will be held from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday at Edison State Community College on Looney Road in Piqua. 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 July 15.
Registration begins 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.
Greenville’s Lauren Baughn and Bradford’s Victoria Smith are members of the Edison State women’s softball team which had its 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,” head softball coach Dan Cain said. “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 women can play before the start of their second season.
Any questions about the event or the women’s softball team, please contact Coach Dan Cain at (937) 570-2630.
