A Cruise-In For A Cure event is planned for Friday, June 8. Rhonda Noah of Key Bank says this is the first time they’ve hosted a show like this, and they’re proud to welcome cars, trucks, motorcycles, and all other types of vehicles to compete in the cruise-in. A $15 donation is required per vehicle, and all proceeds from the event will go directly to the Starke County Relay For Life.
Cancer survivors will judge the cars and pick a top three, and Noah says they’re hopeful this event brings in some new faces.
“We’re going to have the cancer survivors themselves judge the cars. So they’re going to pick a top three, and we’ll give plaque awards to the top three. We’re hoping we can get a lot of people out there – people who don’t normally come to relay. For a new kind of thing, they can come see the cars and the different things while they walk around the track,” said Noah.
Each Relay for Life team will have a tent set up to sell food, bracelets, and other items to raise money for the cause.
The cruise-in will take place from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on June 8 at the Starke County Fairgrounds in Hamlet, with awards to be presented at 8:30 p.m.
