Performance Plus Tire will be holding our Hot Rod Happening & Food Drive this Sunday, November 24th. The annual event kicks off at 8am (parking for participating vehicles starts at 7am) and goes until noon at our Superstore in Long Beach. It is the 6th year for the Hot Rod Happening and the 16th year for the Food Drive.
While many car fans come for the tricked out cars and restored hot rods, others come to contribute to the annual food drive. In 2012 the Food Drive (which started in the summer) gathered enough food to feed 950 families. The goal for 2013 is to feed 1,000 families. Read about the history of the food drive here.
Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food on Sunday, or to drop it off on Saturday. Those bringing $20 worth of groceries will get a voucher for two continental breakfasts. The first 200 with donations of $20 in food will also get a goodie bag. Cash donations will also be accepted at the event.
The Hot Rod Happening is open to all types of modified vehicles. This includes hot rods, classic trucks, muscle cars, custom cars, and low riders. The Top 4 vehicles will receive awards and attendees can vote on the “People’s Choice” award.
As part of the food drive, we will be selling raffle tickets during the event with all proceeds being used to purchase additional food. The grand prize in the raffle? A home entertainment system that includes a 70″ LED TV, a blu-ray home theater system and a hi-def camcorder kit.
See you Sunday!
