Club members Marlan Sharer of Geneseo and Glenn Winter of Moline presented the check to Tim Wynes, Black Hawk College president, and Maureen Dickinson, executive director of the BHC QC Foundation.

Since 1984, the car club has given more than $80,000 to the QC Foundation and has donated to the college for more consecutive years than any other organization.

The donation was generated by gate admissions to the group’s Sept. 29 car show at the college’s Quad-Cities Campus.

The donation supports the Vintage Rods scholarship, which is available to Quad-Cities Campus students with excellent academic performance. Fifteen BHC students received a Vintage Rods scholarship for 2019-20.
