Cruise-in for the Kids is an informal car show and fundraiser (July 6, 5-8:30 pm, Lakewood Towne Center – former Joe’s parking lot) for the Lakewood Branch of the Boys & Girls Club of Puget Sound. Car enthusiasts who would like to show off their cars can do so for a $10 registration fee, all of which will go to benefit the Lakewood Boys & Girls Club. The money raised will also purchase tickets for more than 60 Boys & Girls Club kids to attend a private showing of the recently released Disney movie “Cars 2.” Additionally, the public, kids and car enthusiasts will have a chance to vote on their favorite cars.
The event is being organized by Ken Bollman, sales manager of European Motors located in Lakewood. Bollman is a lifelong car enthusiast who wants to give back to the community and local youth, following in the footsteps of his father, a former minister and social worker. The Lakewood Boys & Girls club offers financial aid, scholarships, programming and other aid for disadvantaged children in the area.
