The family of the late Zachary J. Stump will hold a “Forever 18” benefit car, truck, and motorcycle show in Stump’s honor on the anniversary of his death.

Stump died following a no-fault accident on April 14, 2022, when a car passed into his lane of travel and struck his motorcycle. Stump succumbed to his injuries on April 15, 2022, while being treated at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

The auto show will be held on Saturday, April 15, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Tulpehocken Manor, 648 W. Lincoln Ave. Advance registration for car, truck, and motorcycle owners who wish to exhibit at the event closes on April 12. The cost until that date is $15, with same-day registration available for $20 starting at 9 a.m. on April 15. Trophies will be awarded on event day at 2:30 p.m.

The event is free for the public to attend, with food trucks, live music, and a 50/50 raffle planned in addition to the lineup of prized cars and motorcycles.

His mom, Kim Sherman, told LebTown that the family plans to host the show annually to continue remembering and honoring Stump.

Stump was an ELCO senior and Lebanon CTC student at the time of his death, and had plans to enter the United States Marine Corps. He was also a graduate of the Pennsylvania State Police’s Camp Cadet program.

In his obituary, Stump was described as an adrenaline junkie who enjoyed driving fast cars motorcycles, shooting airsoft guns, gaming, and fishing, crabbing, and camping.

“He was brave, smart, strong, and had a heart of gold,” the obituary continues. “Zach would drop everything to help anyone in need.”

Sherman said that proceeds from the auto show will benefit one ELCO senior and two CTC seniors, as well as Camp Cadet.
