CrusinÕ for a cause: no ordinary car show
Submitted By Sharene Gonzales
Looking for an out-of-the-ordinary event? Bring the entire family to Capitol Avenue in downtown Fremont on Saturday, May 3, for Cruisin' for a Cause. This classic and custom car show not only features vehicles, including emergency service vehicles, but adds a fun spin on receiving a traffic ticket - donors are ticketed for their generosity. That's right, when cash donations are made in the "Charity Lane," donors receive a mock "ticket" and coupon for a free donut. The entire family can enjoy a little rock-n-roll with the beats of Cold Storage, a five member band playing hits of the 1950s and 60s. And if you've got little ones there will be kids' activities to keep them entertained.
This event is designed to provide a nice outing for the entire family, but more importantly to raise money and awareness for Drivers for Survivors (DFS), a local non-profit organization providing no cost transportation services for cancer patients who reside in Fremont, Newark or Union City. A $25 donation will provide a DFS client one day round-trip transportation to a treatment facility for medical care.
There is no cost for this event but donations are welcome.
The event is organized by Leadership Fremont 2014 on behalf of Drivers for Survivors. Leadership Fremont is a coordinated program through the Fremont Chamber of Commerce.
