TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Hundreds of residents gathered Saturday at the Terre Haute Quarter Midget Track to help raise money for a good cause.
The Deluxe Car Show was started by the Hatcher family in honor of their love and passion for cars. It is also to raise money for Team of Mercy, which is a company that supports families that go through the tragedy of suicide.
This show had a lot to offer with their being prizes for the voted by overall car, top 10 best cars, best truck, best custom, and a special award that was even a special award given out by the Vigo County Fair queen.
There were also many retail and food vendors on scene for people to enjoy while witnessing all the cars at the show.
Cayne Hatcher is the founder of this show, and he expresses his continued gratitude for the Wabash Valley.
“It feels great. I love seeing everyone come out. I’ve had a couple people come from two or three hours away for this event. A lot of it is for the foundation and charity for our buddy. It’s amazing to see how a small community like this can come together for such a good cause.”
Hatcher also added that they chose this cause because of how they helped their family after the passing of his brother.
“This event is being held to honor my brother who also had the same passion for cars that I have. The people at Team Mercy have helped us a lot in the past and we want to do anything we can to return the favor.”
