EUGENE, Ore. – There were 30 classic cars and a good cause to boot at Sunday's Concours on the Green event, which has been featuring cars since the 1980s, organizers say.

The event took place at Lavelle Vineyards in Elmira.

Although most of the cars are restored classics, organizer Hal May says this year they added a classic boat.

“We enjoy doing it; it's a lot of fun to tell people about the boat. You know, they don't make them like this anymore."

The boat in question is a 1930 Chris Craft.

The owner says there are very few wooden boats like it left.

The money from Sunday's show goes to Casa of Lane County, a group that advocates for abused and neglected children.
