Third Annual D-3 Event raised $20,000 for the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit

Detroit . . . Car enthusiasts saw a dazzling collection of exotics, Corvettes and muscle cars and got a jump on the Woodward Dream Cruise at the third annual D-3: Dream Cars, Dream House, Dream Cruise, a charity event held at the Lingenfelter Collection in Brighton to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit.

The event raised $20,000 through admissions; a raffle for gift baskets and travel packages; and a live auction that included two round-trip tickets for domestic travel, courtesy of Southwest Airlines; and private tours of the Lingenfelter Collection with owners Ken and Kristen Lingenfelter.

The event drew fans of classic cars who support the House’s mission to provide a home away from home for parents of children who are hospitalized. Guests enjoyed appetizers and drinks as they viewed a world-class collection of cars that include a Bugatti Veyron, LaFerrari and Lamborghini Reventón.

Ken Lingenfelter was on hand to talk with guests about cars and answer questions about his impressive collection. Ferrari Enzo and the 6.0 liter, V-12 engine with 660 hp let out a roar to the crowd’s approval.

“Ken and Kristen Lingenfelter have graciously opened their collection for three years now to help us raise funds for the expansion campaign,” said Jennifer Litomisky, executive director of the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit. “This year’s event further boosted our expansion campaign as we enter the final stretch. With longtime friends and supporters and new ones who learn about our mission, we will reach our $3 million goal by the end of this year.”
