There is no charge to display your Cobra, but you must preregister for the Cruise-In by calling the Washington Township Government Center at (937) 433-0152. Come on out and support Deputy Fulwiler and his cruise-in on July 27th.
During 2001, a small group of fun loving and benevolent car enthusiasts, each with a cult-like passion for the Shelby Cobra and a desire to help sick kids, joined together to form The Ohio Cobra Club.
The purpose of the club is to promulgate admiration for the Cobra Automobile, regardless of make or type; to support the City of London with the London Cobra Show and to support and raise money for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In an effort to assist with the fundraising part of the mission, during 2006, the club attained 501(c)(3) non-profit status.
Throughout the year the club organizes social events such as club meetings, parties, dinners, cruises through various scenic areas in Ohio and helping other club members with their Cobras. Each year, a beautiful Cobra replica is raffled off as the club's main fundraiser. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased by club members at car shows and events. Raffle tickets can also be purchased online.
Every year since 2005, the club has hosted the London Cobra Show. Although the show is called the London Cobra Show, or simply LCS, most of the events take place in and around Columbus, Ohio due to lodging needs in London. The show is always held in June, following the week of Father’s day, and spans the entire weekend. The main show takes place on Saturday in downtown London.
LCS is a combination of car show, social event, and charity fundraiser. Show attendees have the opportunity to see hundreds of beautifully crafted Cobras, buy t-shirts, memorabilia and visit the many vendors that exhibit at the show each year. The winning raffle ticket, that fulfills one lucky person’s dream, is drawn each year at our Saturday evening dinner.
If you love Cobras and want to help sick kids in need, come join The Ohio Cobra Club.
The 2019 raffle car was won by Anthony “Tony” M. from New Castle, PA and he was extremely excited about having the winning ticket. His first words, after hearing he had won, were HOLY S@$T! Tony said he purchased a single raffle ticket last year and another single raffle ticket for our 2019 raffle.
Congratulations on another successful London Cobra Show! On behalf of everyone at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, it is my pleasure to thank you for your generous support and for being a part of our CF community. The Ohio Cobra Club is truly helping us make enormous progress in fighting this terrible disease, and it was a pleasure to share the latest CF research update with you and your wonderful audience. It was a special experience for me to stand on your stage and share the recent advancements with all of the people you have engaged in our mission -- I could see the care and concern in their eyes, and many of them stopped me after the event to tell me how much it means to them to support our important work.
Congratulations to Stephen J. from Fletcher, OH as the winner of our 2019 Diane Combs Commemorative Chocolate Chip Cookie Contest. Stephen had some formidable completion as he was competing against 11 over extremely delicious chocolate cookie bakers.
The Ohio Cobra Club is proud to announce that our 2019 London Cobra Show raffle has allowed the club to donate an additional $90,000.00 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for research. The 2019 donation raises the club’s total donations to $1,423,000.00.
