6TH ANNUAL FALL FEST CRUISE-IN FOR ST. JUDE
Hundreds of bikers and vintage vehicles are set to roar into Applebee's in Owensboro from all over the tri-state. They're getting together for a good cause, to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Grab your friends and family and make plans to be a part of the annual fundraiser. The event, which benefits St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, will be held from 10 AM until 5 PM on Saturday, October 14th, 2023. You'll be giving hope to St. Jude patients and their families, and you'll have a whole lotta fun while doing it.
The event will feature all years, makes, and models of the region's hottest classic cars, trucks, and bikes. This is an annual tradition after all. Plan on bringing the entire family for a day of classic cars, bikes, trucks, great food, music, prizes, activities, and more! 100% of the proceeds benefit St. Jude.
**New this year: There will be a food collection drive to benefit The Help Office of Owensboro. If you can bring some non-perishable food items, it would be appreciated.
I have participated in this event every year, and look forward to joining you at the Fall Fest Cruise-In to support St. Jude! It's by far one of my favorite events of the year. This year, even bigger things are planned, so save the date, and we hope to see you there.
