The car show will take place in the East Lake parking lot at 10057 Broad River Road in Irmo. Missions Pastor John Heflick is looking forward to the largest fundraiser to date for church missions.
“Thanks to the generosity of people from all over, we were able to send Mission ‘Go Teams’ to Belize, Rwanda and Norway, SC,” he said. “As we continue to expand the love of Christ globally, we are excited about the entire community having fun and lending a hand at the same time.”
Andy Ailes, organizer of the car show, said there will be something for everyone.
”We will have food and fun for the entire family,” he said. “The car show has featured everything from classic cars to newer models. We would love for anybody with those kinds of cars to enter and see if it is a winner. In addition, we continue to add more entertainment for the kids.”
Auction Organizer Andy Rauch is looking forward to another successful year.
“This has been a huge event for East Lake in the past and we’re looking forward to an even bigger one this year,” he said. “We will have everything from cultural arts and gift certificates to top-of-the-line jewelry and fashion. I guarantee everyone will be able to find something that interests them. We will continue to accept donations through October 7th with online bidding beginning on the 16th. People throughout the community are encouraged to take a part by donating any goods that they can to the auction."
