Family hold a memorial car show to benefit Memorial

SANBORN – Robert Steinjan Sr. was always into cars - classic cars, drag races, NASCAR, and more.

His family decided the best way to honor his memory would be to hold a car show in his name. But it is also a car show for a cause.

The Robert O. Steinjan Sr. Memorial Car Show will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday on the grounds of Hoover’s Dairy, 6035 Ward Road. Registration will be held on the day of the show between 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. All proceeds will benefit Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center’s new cardiac and stroke care unit.

Steinjan had chronic heart disease and was treated at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. He died in July 2015 at age 76.

William Steinjan said his father was in and out of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, and the hospital staff did what they could to extend his father’s life.

“The staff took great care of him,” said William Steinjan in an announcement of the event.

He said his family wanted to give back to the staff at the hospital who helped the family in their last days with their father, as well as do something in his name.

An estimated 200 automobiles are expected. In addition to the classic cars the show will feature sponsor plaques, stock cars from Ransomville Speedway, face painting for kids, music, food, a basket raffle, a 50/50 drawing, and animals from the Wild Kritters Niagara County sanctuary.
