The third annual Car Show and Motorcycle Ride to benefit Appalachian Senior Programs will be held Saturday, Aug. 18, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Laurel Springs Baptist Church parking lot in the Deep Gap Community.

The church is located at 7504 U.S. 421, Boone.

Among the activities will be a pork barbecue plate lunch for $8, provided by Big Mo’s BBQ, and a children’s hot dog plate lunch for $5.

All lunches include barbecue, baked beans, slaw, roll, dessert and drink.

Car registration for the show begins at 9 a.m.; it’s $10 per car.

Motorcycle registration will begin at 9 a.m. Cost is $20 and includes one lunch and one T-shirt, and for an additional rider, the cost will be $25.

All awards for the car show and motorcycle ride will be given out around 1 p.m.

In addition, a silent auction will be from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Appalachian Senior Programs has been providing services for the children and seniors in the community for three decades through the Senior Companions and Foster Grandparents services.

“With the economic downturn, it is crucial that funds be raised to help with the program costs,” said Debbie Wellborn, director of Senior Companions.
