By Brian Shaffer

During an upcoming event in Ruskin, however, some of the flashiest and fanciest classic cars in the area will be lined up and ready to serve and provide for local veterans and their families.

In partnership with Roamin’ Oldies of Sun City Center, the Third Annual Classic Car Show Benefit for My Warriors Place and Project Corregidor is set to take place on Sunday, March 30 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Plaza on Apollo Beach Blvd.

The fun-filled event will feature a Rod Run, which carries an entry fee of $10, assorted available foods, DJ music, auctions, raffles, including a 50/50, and vendor tents. All of these aspects are, of course, in addition to the numerous, fully-detailed classic cars and hot rods that will be on display.

Trophy prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers of the Rod Run – one selected by Re/Max, another by the DJCar show_roamin oldies and a third by My Warriors Place.

All of the proceeds generated from the event will benefit local veterans and their families. My Warriors Place and Project Corregidor are charities committed to assisting veterans who have returned after serving their country.

Specifically, My Warriors Place seeks to provide a relaxed setting and safe harbor in order to bring about healing for veterans who have returned from the battlefield. Project Corregidor supports and trains service members who have endured the loss of a fallen warrior by providing them with skills necessary to grieve in healthy and productive ways.

The plaza is located at 205 Apollo Beach Blvd. For more information on the event, contact Joe with Roamin’ Oldies at 382-6699.
