9th Annual Cruise-In Raises $21,000 for UH Rainbow Babies

We had another great turnout for our 9th Annual Cruise-In for Rainbow Babies on Saturday, July 30th! We had so many great people and Northeast Ohio’s coolest cars come on by. We hope everyone had fun voting on their favorite vehicles, participating in the raffles, listening to music, and enjoying delicious food. We sure did!

This year, we are pleased to match and donate all proceeds to Rainbow Babies Hospital again. The event itself raised $10,500 and D&S matched 100% of the proceeds from the event to donate $21,000 to UH Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. It is so rewarding to hold this event year after year and continue to donate to a cause that holds a special place in many Northeast Ohioan’s hearts, including ours! D&S is thrilled to continue to give back through the Annual Cruise-In. Our total donation to the hospital has now grown to $102,500!

We were even featured on Channel 5 News!

We are delighted to be able to put on this community event and look forward to hosting our Show again next year. Save the date for July 29, 2023.
