World Famous MOMS Host their Eighth Annual Car Show
World Famous MOMS brings Main Street Aubrey alive by hosting and sponsoring an area wide car show during Memorial Day Weekend. The last seven years the event has benefited the Vietnam Veterans Chapter 920 of Denton, TX and their Green Valley School Project. The Veterans’ have taken the Green Valley School, a rural community school, and saved it from ruin. The Veterans all work in their spare time to turn the school into a building that can be used by community organizations as a meeting place, as well as, privately for weddings, parties and family reunions. To assist in raising more funds for the Vets, World Famous MOMS will be holding a raffle with three winners that can eat at MOMS free for six months! The tickets for this scrumptious prize are only $5.00 each.
Throughout the car show there will be several door prizes given out and a grand prize drawing will be held at the end of the car show for tickets to NASCAR’s Rain Guard 600. This exciting Main Street event commences with an opening ceremony at 11:00 a.m. that has been known to bring tears to the attendee’s eyes. It starts with a prayer, followed by an invocation and then the National Anthem with the Raising of the Colors and a three gun salute followed by Taps. This growing event brings in people from all over North Texas to view the cars and there are entries from as far away as Central Oklahoma. It does not matter if you like the classics, muscle cars, or newer models there are cars here for every taste. There are also different types of farming equipment brought in from North Texas Primitive and Antique Tractor Club that draws a crowd.
The event also offers music, kids’ activities, a jump house and face painting. “When given the chance to do good, people will do good,” says Steve Murray, “We aren’t just a business, we’re dedicated to the Aubrey community. That is why we never miss an opportunity to give back. We truly believe that we can make a difference and are more than happy to help however needed.” Anyone can enter their car for a small $20.00 entry fee, which includes a T-shirt and 50% off any purchase at World Famous MOMS the day of the show. This event is free to the public with free parking. It is a fun event for the entire family!
Area sponsors include, World Famous MOMS, Frenchy’s Lawn and Tree Service, and 380Guide Magazine, and 380News as media sponsors. If you would like to sponsor this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
