Car Show Benefits Local Charities


An annual show is boasting near record numbers with 63 cars in its 18th year.

Each of those years the Island Area Cruisers Car Show has helped a local charity.

In the past, it has been Habitat for Humanity, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Bikes and Tykes and Community Health Charities.

This year the GRACE Foundation will benefit.

"All the money that we collect for entry fees and raffles, etc. all goes to the GRACE Foundation for the charity of cancer–related things. They do motel rooms, gas, things like that that insurances don't pay for," said Steve Manolidis, president of Island Area Cruisers.

Manolidis said the good weather boosted their numbers from last year.
