The sixth annual Cruisin' 4 a Cause fundraiser benefitting the Project 22 Social Club was held at the olds Sears store in Hendersonville on July 21.
Hosted by Hendersonville Cruise In, the event featured classic cars, a silent auction, a cake walk, bake sale and loads of food for the visitors. Despite the heat and humidity, the event attracted many visitors who had the opportunity to purchase and bid on items, as well as to make donations to Project 22.
Sponsored by the Arc of Cumberland Valley, Project 22 is a program that provides opportunities for young adults with learning disabilities to interact with others to help hone their socialization skills.
According to Arc Secretary/Event Coordinator Morgan Scruggs, "Project 22 opens up a world of new chances for its members grow both personally and socially."
In addition to helping them with their interpersonal skills, Project 22 also stresses community involvement and giving back, including participation in the Sumner County Veterans Victory Garden and Food Bank, service projects for the homeless, providing dog treats and toys for the Sumner County Humane Society and participating in local festivals and parades.
