Following numerous requests from past participants, loyal fans and customers we are announcing the return of BrakeFest – a regional classic car show and charity fundraiser hosted by Master Power Brakes.
Brakefest 2016 will be held on Saturday, October 1st featuring a car show open to all makes, models and years. The family-friendly event will offer visitors music, vendors, food, lots of door prizes, a huge silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.
The registration fee is $20.00 per vehicle with display parking available on a first come – first parked basis. The first 50 vehicles arriving will receive a fantastic goody bag!
All of the proceeds that are generated from the day will be donated to two charities: Classroom Central and the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation.
Classroom Central equips students living in poverty with free school supplies to learn more effectively. Since 2000, Classroom Central has focused on collecting and distributing classroom materials to teachers and other school personnel in eligible schools. Teachers are able to “shop” for free school supplies at a local location and online (via The Classroom Up program) throughout the academic year. In addition, with the help of sponsors, Classroom Central outfits the highest poverty schools in the region (85% free reduced lunch rate or higher) with supply kits and backpacks for their entire student body.
NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Martin Truex Jr. and Sherry Pollex via the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation are raising awareness, boosting advocacy, and generating financial support for underfunded cancer research initiatives specific to ovarian and childhood cancers. These two focus areas represent some of the most prevalent and underfunded diseases affecting children & women in America today.
Awards and Recognition
Fifteen trophies will be awarded to the top vehicles as selected by event participants. In addition, two cars will be selected by Classroom Central and Martin Truex Jr. Foundation to receive trophies. Through June 15, interested vendors and event sponsors can contact event coordinator, Mark Chichester.
