17th Annual Cruise-In Benefit to Support Holland Family

HOLLAND, Mich. – August 24, 2018 – Trendway Corp. will host its 17th annual Cruise-In Benefit from 5-9 p.m. on Friday, September 7, at its headquarters at 13467 Quincy St. in Holland.  The annual event features an array of vehicles, including street rods, customs, motorcycles, trucks, and restored cars.  In recognition of Trendway’s year-long 50th-anniversary celebration, this year’s event will include a special collection of 1968 cars.  All proceeds from the 2018 event will benefit the Appledorn family and help defer the accumulated burden of a two-month hospital stay and ongoing medical services related to treatment for 13-year-old daughter Chloe, who suffers from Anorexia Nervosa.   


“Chloe is an excellent student who is involved with softball and band at Macatawa Bay Middle School,” said Don Heeringa, Trendway chairman. “After identifying her condition in the summer of 2017, it required a two-month in-patient hospital stay and involves outpatient services for an indefinite period, so this event will help defer the accumulated burden of the hospital stay and ongoing medical services.”  


Over the past sixteen years, Trendway’s Cruise-In Benefit has raised nearly $400,000 for individuals in need, who have ranged from family members of Trendway employees to others from the greater Holland community.  


Chloe’s father, Scott Appledorn, is a manufacturing technician at Trendway. 


Anyone who wants to show a vehicle can enter for $5 per car. Dash plaques will be given to the first 50 vehicles to register. The Cruise-In Benefit will include food, entertainment, raffles, kids’ activities, and more. There is no entry fee for spectators, free parking is available, and the event is open to the public.  


“Our annual Cruise-In Benefit has earned a positive reputation for the support it has provided for members of our company and the community,” said Heeringa.  “Trendway employees have always been supportive of our Cruise-In Benefit, and we expect many employees to volunteer as part of our Give 50 Challenge.” 


Trendway announced its Give 50 Challenge in January 2018, a companywide initiative that encourages all employees to participate in 50 hours of community service throughout 2018. The Trendway Give 50 Challenge coincides with the company’s 50th anniversary.
