Join Wilson Community College, in partnership with the Eastern Carolina Corvette Club and sponsored by Lee Motor Group, for the third annual WCC Car & Truck Show on Saturday, September 24 (rain or shine) from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the back of the main campus located at 902 Herring Avenue.
So, if you and your family and friends want to look at the cars, trucks, and Jeeps entered in the show, it is free and open to the public. We’ll have DJ Lin Jones and food trucks too, thanks to Bill’s Grill and Sunset Slush.
Vehicle entry in the Show is $20, and folks can register before the date of the event or on the day-of. Registration runs from 9:00 a.m. to noon, with participants’ choice awards presented at 3:00 p.m. The awards include top 10 in Classics I, II, and III (all makes and models), and Special Interest categories. We will also award Best of Show for Ford, GM, Mopar, Truck, Foreign, and Other.
We will also have a 50/50 raffle open to the public and participants. And anyone can purchase this year’s event t-shirt for $15, and the past years’ shirts for $5 each.
All proceeds benefit the Wilson Community College Automotive Systems Technology program. In fact, it’s just one of the many events/fundraisers that the Wilson Community College Foundation puts on. The Foundation has been around since 1981 and has continued to grow year after year. We award scholarships and tuition assistance, hold fundraisers, and provide financial assistance for faculty and staff professional development. In addition to the Car & Truck Show benefitting the Automotive program, the Scholarship Invitational Golf Tournament (set for October 27) raises funds raised for the WCC Family Endowment fund, which provides scholarships for students.
None of this would be possible without the community’s support, and especially the help of the Eastern Carolina Corvette Club and sponsorship by Lee Motor Group for the Car & Truck Show – so a huge thank-you goes to them.
