Fourth annual interact car show, fundraiser for Mrs. Lewis

Fourth annual interact car show, fundraiser for Mrs. Lewis

On May 6 from 3-6 p.m. in the Seaman High school south parking lot, the car show is adding a new twist.  Interact will be holding a fundraiser for Mrs. Laurie Lewis, an SHS teacher in the midst of cancer treatments.

Counselor Patty Allacher explains, “We are doing this because she is in a situation where financial support would be helpful, so Kate Scarborough and I put our heads together.”

The goal for the silent auction was to receive 15 baskets; fortunately, there are currently 32 baskets. Along with the baskets, some money has been donated, and they are hoping to use this money to create even more baskets.

While they are hoping to raise as much money as possible, Mrs. Allacher says, “We don’t have a goal because any little bit helps, and we are hoping that the baskets create enough interest.”

Interact is putting on their fourth annual Drive Out Hunger car show.

“Each year the Drive Out Hunger show strives to raise awareness and funding for Meals on Wheels by asking automobile enthusiasts to place their vehicles in the car show,” explains Tim Collins. “We also sell raffle tickets for incredible gifts, have concessions available, and this year we will be selling shirts to commemorate the event.”

The car show is free to the general public and a registration fee of $15 online or $20 the day of the event. All participants will receive a tote bag with goodies, a small drink and 1 piece of pizza, and a chance to win one of five plaques.
