City gears up for car show

HOSCHTON -- Whether you're a car enthusiast, just want to get out of the house and have a little fun or help cure cancer, the third annual Mill Creek Car Show has something for you.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. March 20 and all proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.

It will feature food, music, giveaways and a silent auction in addition to the main attraction, a car show open to all makes and models, car, truck or bike. Trophies are awarded to the top five favorites.

Organizers said the car show began in 2008 as a class project for an economics class but has since become a staple at Mill Creek High School.

American Cancer Society Area Director Randy Redner praised the efforts of the car show and Gwinnett-area high schoolers for their efforts in the fight against cancer.

"Each year the students from across our school system get creative and energized to help the cause," Redner said. "Almost every school is involved in Relay For Life and not only do they help a good cause, they learn how they can help their community."

The event is $15 for participants and free for spectators.

Those interested in promoting their businesses or donating items to be given away as door prizes should send an e-mail to millcreekcarshow@bellsouth.net.
