ROCKINGHAM — Richmond County Hospice is gearing up for its second annual Cool Cars for a Cause show later this month.


Organizers say the event, scheduled for March 28, is open for all makes and models — and even motorcycles.

Like last year, the car show is sponsored by Watson-King Funeral Home.

Registration is at 8 a.m. with the show running from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The registration fee is $20 for the first vehicle and $10 for each additional vehicle a participant wants to enter.

“We are striving to make this year’s event as successful as last year,” said Julia Woody, public relations director.

Awards categories include:

  • Best GM 1910-1993 / 1994-2020 
  • Best Ford 1910-1993 / 1994-2020 
  • Best Mopar 1910-1993 / 1994-2020 
  • Best Truck 1910-1993 / 1994-2020 
  • Best Non Production 1910-1993 / 1994-2020

  • Best Rat Rod 
  • Best Mini Truck 
  • Best Interior
  • Best Modern Muscle
  • Best Old School Muscle

  • Best Street Bike
  • Best Cruiser Bike
  • Best Project Car

“We are working to find vendors for the event,” Woody added, including craft makers and independent retailers of LuLaRoe, Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Scentsy, and others.

The cost for a vendor space is $25 or $20 if you participated last year.

“We will limit the number of vendors we have for each type of item so it will be first come, first serve for space,” Woody said.

She added that there will also be a Kids Zone with bounce houses and a video game truck,and there will be food available.

Everyone who attends will be eligible to enter a free raffle, with the prizes including two tickets to Hospice’s signature Dancing with the Stars fundraiser — which brought in around $60,000 last year — and season tickets for the Richmond Senior High School football games in the fall.

Woody said she hopes to have other prizes available.

“We want it to be a family friendly day that everyone enjoys!” she said.
