The 11th Annual Fort White Cystic Fibrosis Car Show, held last Saturday, at the Fort White Community Center drew hundreds of car enthusiasts with big hearts as they admired 79 cars and trucks showcased for the event. The Fort White Community Center was jam packed with standing room only as everyone gathered for the live and silent auctions, eager to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis.

Chris and Shelley Brown manage the event hoping one day there will be a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Sadly, they lost their son, David, in 2017 to Cystic Fibrosis and this event was in his honor. This year they raised over $11,000 for the CF Foundation.

Shelley Brown said the weather kept many away as rain poured down, beading up on the shiny, freshly waxed vehicles on display. Last year they had around 100 cars and trucks and were able to raise $18,000, she said. Next year their goal is $20,000 as they pray for better weather.

Many trophies and plaques were given out after the auctions. Each had a story to tell. Visit their Facebook page for more information and photos.

The Browns wanted to thank everyone involved in helping raise $11K for CFF this year. They said they could not do this without the sponsors, volunteers, spectators, donations from the community and the fabulous drivers of these amazing vehicles.

“We love you all more than you’ll ever know. Doing this all in David’s memory as we race for the cure for others.”

received a plaque for bringing her ’94 red

Mustang Convertible. She also received a

plaque for the best themed car, being

presented by Brown. Diett had planned to

come to the show with her father, Robert

Diett, this year.Unfortunately, he passed

away in January from a pulmonary embolism.

In honor of her father, she came to the show

and had all of his trophies displayed in her car

along with a sign she wrote out honoring him.
