Well, it's getting close to that time of the year again! This year's cruise we're going back to the roots, back to the dam route. The date for this year will be December 11th. Finalizing the starting and finishing locations and then they will be released.
For those of you who don't know us, we are a small group of automotive enthusiasts who enjoy giving gifts to the children stuck in the hospital during Christmas. Especially with the financial burdens these days, it feels good to make sure that these kids can at least have a small amount of joy during a stressful and possibly scary time.
All we ask if you attend is a donation of one new, unwrapped toy. That's it!
We donate to Children's Healthcare of Atlantahttp://www.choa.orghttp://www.facebook.com/ChildrensHea...Atlanta?ref=mf
