PRESS RELEASE — Georgetown Square will be filled with vintage cars, live music and talented painters on Friday, July 13, as the Fran and Bob Sebeika Memorial Classic Car show returns.
The fifth annual show will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. July 13 in the shopping center parking lot on East State Boulevard.
Expect to see everything from ’57 Chevys to ’65 Mustangs and even a McLaren and an Aston Martin at the event. Car owners may register on the day of the open show for a $10 fee. Special awards and trophies in a variety of categories will be given, and the first 100 cars will receive dash plaques. There is no charge to wander the lot and enjoy the fun.
Singers Brent Cooper and Jamie Klein will present their popular King & Country show, which features the songs of Elvis Presley and a variety of country stars.
And new this year, artists from the Fort Wayne Plein Air Painters will be on site with their
easels, brushes and canvases. Their incredible talents will be on display as they create paintings of some of the magnificent cars in the show.
The event is sponsored by Georgetown Subway and Georgetown Square in partnership with the Fort Wayne Corvette Club. Food and drinks will be available at the newly remodeled
Georgetown Entertainment. Proceeds from the event will benefit Turnstone and the Jackson R. Lehman Family YMCA.
Georgetown Subway owner Jeff Sebeika is proud to host the event in honor of his late parents, who were longtime members of the Fort Wayne Corvette Club.
“It’s been thrilling to see this show grow each year and become such a popular event in our
neighborhood for all ages to enjoy,” Sebeika said. “I’m particularly excited this year to add a unique new element: the participation of the Fort Wayne Plein Air Painters. The car owners and spectators will be able to watch these gifted artists create paintings live in front of them, as they wander the lot and enjoy the music.
“These exquisite cars, which are works of art in their own right, will be a terrific new subject for our painters to capture,” said Dave Broerman, director of the Plein Air Painters. “And we’re excited to be able to reach a new audience at this fun event.”
