Classic cars and trucks, vendors and a day full of fun will do more than offer citizens a good time – it will benefit a local law enforcement officer battling cancer.
The Southern Cruisers Car Club will host its annual car, truck and motorcycle show at the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fairgrounds of Ga. 67 Saturday.
The show begins at 10 a.m. and will end at 3 p.m., with all money raised going towards medical and other expenses for Statesboro Police Officer Ken Scott, who is battling kidney cancer, said Southern Cruisers member Gary Oglesby.
Over 200 entries are expected, he said.
Scott was diagnosed with renal carcinoma in 2008, and had a kidney removed, he said. However, the cancer returned, and Scott underwent a second surgery in 2010 after doctors learned the cancer had spread.
Married to wife Janice, Scott is father to two daughters. The former Navy officer joined the Statesboro Police Department in 2001 and has received several citations and awards for outstanding service, Oglesby said. He currently serves the department as a Criminal Investigations detective.
Scott’s favorite car is a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, he said.
Admission to the 20th Annual Southern Cruisers Car, Truck and Cycle Show is $3, with children under 12 admitted free. Military families with ID are also admitted free.
Registration is from 8 a.m. until 11:30a.m., and entries will be judges from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Door prizes will be awarded between 1 and 3 pm., and awards for entries in the show.
There will be cars for sale, a silent auction, raffle for a week in Ormond Beach, Fla., and other attractions, including food vendors.
No alcohol and no personal music allowed.
