D’IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - For a quarter of a century, a local car club has been holding a charity car show for Christmas. This year’s show benefitted a number of different causes.
"This is our 25th annual Singing River Street Rod Charity Christmas show," said Deonne Olier.
Olier and The Singing River Street Rod Association love two things: cars and helping the community.
“We raise money for the three churches in the area, and this year Big Ridge Baptist Church is raising money for foster children, and also we’re raising money for a cancer patient here locally,” Olier said.
There were dozens of cars in the church parking lot for the car lovers and a fish fry for anyone who got hungry. The event also included a toy drive.
“The toys are going to the foster children, and some money is also going to the foster children, and we’re also doing a 50/50 for a cancer patient,” she said.
The 50/50 proceeds, totaling $200, were donated on the spot. Olier thought the reason this event has lasted as long as it has is simple.
“The car people love it,” she said. “They just, they love giving. It’s a thing that the car families do, and this time of year, it’s always something special.”
