“Krusin Klassics is a non-profit organization founded in 1985 by a few local automobile enthusiasts. Beginning with just a few cars as an informal meet at a local auto dealer’s parking lot, we have grown to 150 members and draw nearly 650 automobiles with our annual Fun Run parade and Car show.
Our Fun Run car show proceeds are distributed throughout the county in forms of donations to local charities, scholarships, etc. A few examples would be the Salvation Army food bank, Walk For Warmth, Upper Peninsula Honor Flight, Bay De Noc Community College, and many many other well deserving recipients.”
