The 9th Annual CHEER Car, Truck and Bike Show will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 3, at the Warren L. & Charles C. Allen CHEER Community Center in Georgetown. The public is invited to enjoy this free event. More than 100 vehicles entered last year’s event.
This year’s theme will be Wheels for Meals. Last year, the CHEER Nutrition Program provided more than 314,000 meals to more than 4,500 seniors across Sussex County. This event will raise money for CHEER’s Cooking for Sussex Seniors Capital Campaign to build and equip a new kitchen to provide healthy meals for senior citizens for decades to come.
CHEER is also featuring its famous CHEER Gourmet Champagne Brunch during the show, featuring steamed shrimp, prime rib, vegetables and breakfast foods. Brunch tickets are $25. It is open to the public. To purchase tickets, go to www.cheerde.com or buy at the door.
Trophies will be awarded in several categories, and the first 125 cars registered will receive dash plaques. All entrants will receive goodie bags filled with items and information. Anniversary ribbons will be given to any entry of a vehicle model made from 1968.
Cost of car registration is $25 a vehicle or for $50, participants can register a car and get two free champagne brunch tickets, a cost savings of $25. Registration for vehicles is open until Saturday, July 27. To register, go to www.cheerde.com. For more information, contact Florence Mason at 302-515-3045.
