ChoiceOne Bank backs Coopersville tradition

COOPERSVILLE, Mich.— Sparta-based ChoiceOne Bank is throwing its support behind a Coopersville tradition.

The bank announced Friday that it will donate $1,000 to the 23rd annual Del Shannon Car Show, held August 9-10.

About 800 vehicles from every decade will line historic Main Street during the car show, which is named after rock and roll sensation and Coopersville native Del Shannon. The event starts at 6 p.m. Friday with a cruise through downtown.  The car show is expected to attract up to 80,000 people downtown.

Proceeds from the Del Shannon Car Show will go to the NEO Forum and Del Shannon Scholarship Fund.  NEO Forum is a drug, alcohol and violence prevention program serving children in northeast Ottawa County, including those attending Coopersville Public Schools.  The Del Shannon Scholarship Fund is for Coopersville High School graduates who plan to study the arts in college.
