The Lucky 7 Casino will be the site of a memorial for Dayle Niemie, longtime founder and promoter of the Lucky 7 MDA classic car show, who died February 25.
He put on the car show for 22 years at the Lucky 7, so it’s appropriate that his memorial will be there in the front parking lot where most of his car shows were located. He put on the car show from a scooter and later a wheelchair as he was a victim of Muscular Dystrophy. His daughter Heather also is a victim and was beside him at most of the car shows. All of the proceeds from the shows went to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The car that he loved for over 25 years will also be there, a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner.
The car show will go on without him this year as the Lucky 7 Casino still would like to continue honoring him by sponsoring and supporting the MDA.
There will be a show and shine for all of his classic cars friends, so everyone is invited to come and bring their cars. It will be held June 26 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
