On Sunday, August 12, 2018, the 5th Annual Northeast Mustang Show and All Ford Show took place on Staten Island in memory of Skylar Milagros Fonseca. They raised $3,500 for CHERUBS/CDH International.
Skylar’s grandparents had this to say about their event and fundraiser, “On Sunday, August 12th, we proudly hosted our 5th annual Northeast Mustang Meet and All Ford Show on Staten Island, in memory of our Granddaughter Skylar Milagros Fonseca and all of the other angels we have lost to CDH. This event is made up of multiple car clubs and individuals as well, who come together to showcase their love and passion for their cars while at the same time, donate to a great cause. With each admission paid or raffle ticket purchased, proceeds are sent to Cherubs with the intention on being able to help other families who may be going through the same issue we did back in 2013. During our difficult time, Cherubs was there not only for our expecting daughter Brianna and Skylar; but for our family as a whole. This event is our way of giving back the comfort, compassion and understanding for other families living through CDH.
If it were not for the support of our club members along with local businesses, family and friends, this event would never be. We are proud to have partnered with Dana Ford, who provided us with the location and sponsorship of the tee shirts and trophies. DJ Evil Lou keep the music going all day, providing an upbeat feeling for our attendees. We even had a special guest appearance by the current reigning Ms. Staten Island, who walked around and greeted the attendees and took some great pictures with the cars. It was a great day had by all and we look forward to doing it again next year. Stay tuned for more information on our next event coming soon.”
Thank you so much to Skylar’s family for giving back to help others affected by CDH and to all the amazing people that make the Mustang Meet happen yearly. A truly special event in memory of cherub Skylar.
