Car Show at DACC to Help Student’s Family

Alex Dinger Memorial

The Danville Area Community College Automotive program faculty and students are mourning the loss of a young Auto student over the weekend. Alex Dinger was killed in a car crash Saturday, October 15, on his way home.

In Alex’s memory, his professors and classmates have planned to host a Car Show at DACC, October 29, 2022. At the request of his family, proceeds from the competition will benefit the DACC Auto Program in Alex’s memory. Additionally, the students started a GoFundMe account to help his family with funeral and related expenses.

Registration for the Car Show competition will be from 9:00 to 11:00 am with awards announced at 2:00 pm. Registration is $10 with awards given for Students’ Choice; Top 20 Anything on Wheels; Top 5 Imports; and Top 5 Youth. The first 50 cars to register will receive dash plaques.

In addition to the car show, there will be vendors on site, a 50/50 Raffle, and a Trunk or Treat from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm. Attendance is free and everyone is welcome.
