RCC to Host Sixth Annual Anthony Amoros Car Show

6th Annual Anthony Amoros Car Show

RAMAPO, N.Y. – Car owners who take pride in showing off their vehicles – classic, antique, late model, any style – are invited to participate in the sixth annual Anthony Amoros Car Show, set for Saturday, August 11, 11 am to 4 pm, at Rockland Community College. Proceeds benefit the Anthony Amoros Scholarship Fund, overseen by the RCC Foundation.

Admission to the event is free. The cost to show your car is $20, and $25 for other vendors. To pay entry or vendor fees, contact Ivette Amoros at 845-480-1156, or Al Amoros at 914-434-2391. The rain date is Sunday, August 12.

Anthony Amoros was a first-year student at RCC when he died in a one-car accident on Thiells-Mt. Ivy Road in Haverstraw in January 2013. A 2012 North Rockland High School graduate, Amoros loved working on cars and attended Rockland BOCES for auto mechanics. His family established the car show in 2013 as a tribute to Anthony and his automotive passion. The Anthony A. Amoros Memorial Scholarship at RCC awards two $500 scholarships each year to new and continuing students at the college.

“The Amoros family has turned a deeply tragic event into a cause to support students' ability to seek their dreams through earning a degree in higher education,” said Elizabeth Kendall, Interim Executive Director of the RCC Foundation and Associate Vice President of Resource Development.

Trophies and prizes will be awarded for the best-shown cars, as judged by a panel of car experts. The day will also feature a DJ and entertainment, an Elvis impersonator, raffles, 50-50, and refreshments for sale.
