This event will offer a variety of family oriented activities throughout the event. It’s more than just ‘chrome and fancy engines,’according to Sherry Sperring, event coordinator.
Their mission statement is the “Power to make a difference,” the “Passion to keep fighting back” and the “Hope to find a cure.”
The event will kick off at noon with Presentation of Colors followed by the National Anthem performed by Taylor Rand, an American Idol contestant from Philadelphia. Following will be a “cancer survivor ceremony celebration”. The survivors in attendance will have refreshments available afterwards
