The first annual Hometown Helps Car Show, sponsored by Christ Community Church recently raised over $2,800 for Food for the Poor and Haiti Relief. The event, which was held on Saturday afternoon on March 27, drew in 65 registrations from all over the East Metro Atlanta area.
"We were thrilled with the turn-out we had and look forward to this being an even bigger event next year," said Dave Crandall, pastor of CCC. "The main goal of the event was to raise money for those much less fortunate than us. The people of Haiti lost so much in the earthquake and we wanted to do something to help."
The idea for a car show came from a CCC member who is an AMSoil distributor and a regular participant of other car shows. Church members went to several other local car shows and invited car owners to come and show their cars and help a good cause. They responded whole-heartedly. There were cars of many different types represented at this event — classic muscle cars, modern sports cars, California-type low-rider hydraulic cars and even a few trucks and motorcycles. There were vehicles from the last six decades present. To view pictures of the participating cars go to www.facebook.com/CCCeastmetro.
Other sponsors of the car show were The Beech Foundation, Smyrna Presbyterian Church and Social Circle Kruizers.
Christ Community Church is on the Conyers/Covington border. CCC is a congregation of regular people with a renewed and refreshing concept of what the Christian life can be.
