This year, Klingberg is expanding the opportunities for sponsors from one event to five events throughout the year. On five Saturday mornings from 9am to noon, antique vehicles through 1979 will be showcased. In addition, one of the Klingberg programs will be highlighted so that all can learn more about the Klingberg mission and the people we serve. This expansion to five events gives sponsors additional exposure plus date flexibility for their guests, volunteers, and staff engagement. The new Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Series website has been redesigned to be easy to navigate on all devices to accommodate sponsor recognition.
