The first 50 cars to show up will receive a stuffed goodie bag filled with surprises. The judging of all cars present will start at 11:00am and culminate at 4:00pm with awards and the announcement of the day's winners. All donations will benefit the March of Dimes.

The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of infants by providing support and resources to help prevent birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Their drive to seek answers as to why women go into preterm labor and find methods to prevent it, can only be accomplished through active community support and services, advocacy, education and research.
"It's a great Mother's Day Weekend to be thankful for Moms, celebrate families and have some fun," stated Ken Clark, the COO at Farmers Boys® Restaurants. "If we all come together to support a dynamic charitable group like the March of Dimes, many community partners and family members will eventually be impacted positively because our children will have an opportunity to grow healthier and have a successful future."
