Car show to benefit Grace Brethren playground
CHAMBERSBURG — Grace Brethren Church, 315 S. Edwards Ave., Chambersburg, will offer a variety of unique items at its third car show and auction from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 12.
According to Pastor John Bayer, event coordinator, the show was first held in 2013 in memory of his parents, John and Kathy Bayer, as a fundraiser for a children’s playground.
The Grace Community Car Show group, which includes 63 area businesses and 15 individuals who plan and organize the event, raised $16,000 the first two years and was able to get the playground off the ground with slides, tunnels and other equipment for 2- to 5-year-olds.
Bayer said the second stage of the project is to install a large set of equipment for 5- to 12-year-olds that will feature swings, slides and climbing boards.
Among the items at this year’s auction will be two custom steel tables designed by air brush artist Kei Greene. One is a Harley Davidson-themed table which is currently on display at M & S Harley Davidson in Chambersburg, and the other is a 1966 Mustang Fastback-themed table on display at Keystone Ford in Chambersburg.
