Cars For Cancer Car Show

Date: August 31 - Sept 1, 2014
Where: Mercy Health Partners, 6291 S. Harvey St., Muskegon, MI 49444
This will be year 10 of doing the show and have raised more than $120,000.00 for patient care at the Johnson Family Center for Cancer Care in Muskegon Michigan. We are a small family based car club called Different Strokes Car Club and joined with the Knights of Columbus #13035 which I am a member to help do something good for our community. We had almost 800 cars, bikes, and a few old trailers. I am working with the hospital to see if we could set area up for just trailer and overnight camping with no power for the show. The car show is Labor Day, but the event has turned into a two day show with the Sunday night as a Cruise night and entertainment tent. It is a low cost of ten dollars for both days. We would really love to see a large group from TCT club.
