2018 Fuelfed Cocktails & Classics Recap

The 2018 Fuelfed Cocktails and Classics brought a record number of members out for an evening of good cheer and camaraderie. C&C is our traditional start to the new driving season. This year we had hoped for an early spring snow to show off what Continental had in store for party goers. 

Before that, we want to thank our member volunteers for helping set-up, check-in, serve-up, tear-down and clean up. For without them, non of our events would be possible.

We arranged the Hayes collection in the Ravenswood Event Center so that classics where interspersed in the space and positioned the dining tables and chairs among them. We had Marco from La Macchina Cafe serving his addictive lasagna (seriously), salads and cannoli and Will from Fuelfed’s neighbor Spiteful Brewing and volunteers serving Spiteful’s IPA and Pigeon Porter. Volunteers also teamed next to Will to serve wine from The Bottle Shop in Wilmette.

Half way through the party, the alley doors opened and in roared the new Ferrari GTC4 Lusso in what was to be a demonstration of the new 4WD Panamera eater. But, Mother Nature spared us more salt and extra clean up. Special thanks to Avlet for setting up audio system and mic allowing Continental AutoSports’ Dave and Scott to make the Ferrari introduction to party goers. They happily let the curious explore Ferrari’s finer points.

This year we added Timothy Owens Photography to make sure the event was properly captured by a discerning eye.

Finally, Fuelfed always gives back and this year for our Cocktails & Classics charity we give $700.00 to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Fuelfed events are far more than just a party with classic collections, They are experiences that more and more couples are enjoying…as it should be.
