TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Car lovers showed up and showed out as they showcased some of their vintage cars to help raise money for charity.
Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church and Vigo County CASA joined together to put on their 2nd annual car show Extravaganza as they looked to raise funds to help take care of their community.
“Last year we had 92 cars and this year I think we’re going to surpass that so I think it will be really good,” CASA June Edington. “All the money goes to CASA and the Mount Pleasant.”
John Gee attended the event as he pulled in with his 1981 Camaro Berlinetta, but for him giving back to the community is the most important thing in mind when attending this event.
“It’s great to go to these car shows. They’re all great charities that we support. The Fellowship, meeting everybody here,” Gee said. “The biggest thing is supporting different charities.”
For many church members, making sure they put on an event that allows the community to take part in fun with each other as well as giving back to the community is something they always strive to do.
“We believe in the lord and we believe the lord is there to protect us and to guide us and this is what we have to do,” Mount Pleasant church member Linda Agresta said. “This is our calling. This is what we’re supposed to do.”
