Each June, Ovation is proud to sponsor the Klingberg Family Center’s Vintage Auto Show in New Britain, Connecticut. The show serves as a crucial part in Klingberg’s mission to help build healing relationships that empower children and families to reach their full potential. Each year, sponsors and hundreds of vintage car owners, raise significant funds to support the 2,500 persons Klingberg serves.
This past Saturday, nearly 5,000 people converged on Klingberg’s 40-acre campus to enjoy hundreds of amazing vintage cars, classic cars, and supercars, delicious food, great music, and entertainment.
