Car Show for Eli Williams!
Calendar: Events Calendar
SoScary  
January 25th 12:00 PM to 04:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Lindsey Lane Baptist Church, 1300 Lindsey Lane S., Athens, AL 35613 (just north of Publix off Hwy 72)
Contact: Organizer: Lawrence Taylor-Duncan - ltd@knology.net

Here is the story: I found out about a little 9-year old boy who lives in in Athens. When he was 7 he was diagnosed with a brain cancer condition called Medulloblastoma. He was in relapse for a year following 9 months of radiation and chemo but it has since returned just last month so now he is back fighting this and is currently undergoing chemo again.

I discovered he is a big Mustang fan, so in conjunction with the Limestone County Mustang Club, we decided to quickly put together a very informal small “Mini” car show for Eli and let him see all of our Mustangs up close and personal. Well as fate would have it the news has spread so quickly that now this event has gone viral and more folks are calling every day and want to be part of it. So much so that we have had to switch venues twice! We are now expecting possibly 100 cars and although most will be Mustangs, others are welcome too!

We are very excited to take part in this now large event. We have been working closely with his mom to make this a day to remember. If you wish to participate, please remember that this is all about Eli - not about the cars - so please leave any egos at home and make this a wonderful day for this little kid to remember!

NOTE: In the event of inclement weather or if Eli is too unwell to participate, we will notify everyone and we will reschedule accordingly.
14 members will be attending this event:

*** Just as a reminder, this is not a typical car show......no trophies/no awards/no registration.......just an event for Eli to come and enjoy seeing the cars and the excitement of all these cars coming to honor him!! We will take donations to give 100% to the family if you choose to give.

I can't wait... first meet of the Year. I hope Eli enjoys it. I'm trying to gather some more stuff from my company for Mr. Eli and family. I know it will be a great turn-out and the weather looks clear and warm.

I'll be there in the Stang. This should be a good one, with a lot of cars coming out. I just hope It isn't freezing out there on Saturday.

From my understanding in talking to Joseph all cars are welcome. I also want say a big thanks to everyone helping put this together. It's great to see so many people coming together for such a great cause!

251 and climbing on Facebook.

I have had about 30 members of the HemiTruckClub.com that would love to join in on the show for Eli, but most of them are more than a days drive away.
