Newton, NC – PACE@Home will host its second annual “Mark White Legacy Cruise In” antique car show on Friday, June 17, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the organization’s day center, located at 1915 Fairgrove Church Road in Newton, N.C.
This fun, family event, formerly named Dudes and Donuts, was begun by PACE@Home’s Activities Department as a Father’s Day event. The event was later renamed in honor of Mark White, the father of PACE@Home’s Rehabilitation Director, Jason White, because of his love for classic cars.
What began with just a few antique cars parked outside of the organization’s day center now draws people from all around to enjoy this nostalgic community gathering. Those who would like to bring their antique cars to the event are encouraged to call (828) 468-3980 to register.
Big Byrd’s Smokehouse Food Truck will be on site to offer tasty barbeque. Free donuts and water will also be available.
“We’re excited about this event because it will be an opportunity to celebrate the history behind these antique cars, while remembering the good old days,” says Emily Jones, Executive Director of PACE@Home. “It will also give our community a chance to gather with family and friends for a time of fun and fellowship.”
