The Plains car show raises $6,000 to fight hunger

The fourth annual “Rise Against Hunger” car and truck show drew 118 classic vehicles and about 1,000 spectators to The Plains on Saturday, Aug. 10.

Grace Episcopal Church hosts the car show to raise funds for its efforts to help feed the needy.

The event netted about $6,000 for the cause, according to Show Director Paul Smith. The church will host an event on Saturday, Nov. 9, to pack more than 20,000 meals.

The number of vehicles entered set a record for the show, Mr. Smith added.

The top award winners:

• Best in Show — Jim Mitchell, of Warrenton, showing a 1935 Buick Phaeton.

• Rector’s Choice — Doug Knoche, of Fairfax, showing a 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air.

• Kids Choice — Dick George, of Winchester, showing a 1950 Mercury 2-Door Coupe.
