MARYSVILLE — Victory Foursquare Church will host its third annual Victory Car Show to benefit the Allen Creek Community Food Bank, on July 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“All the proceeds go to the food bank, and we are trying to get something together to help seniors and widows get small car repairs as well,” said Robin Taylor, who started the event three years ago.

“I’ve always liked hot rods and cars, ever since I was a little kid. I thought that the grounds of the church had a nice property for a car show, and that it would be a good way to connect with the community in Marysville.”

The car show will host a silent auction and give trophies to winners of four different categories.

“We will also have a cash drawing done by car registration number for one $500 prize and 10 $100 prizes,” said Taylor. “It gives people the chance to win something just for bringing a car even if it’s not the best car in the lot.”

Visitors can fill up at the Famous Dave’s barbecue truck on burgers and hot dogs, all the proceeds of which will also be donated to the food bank. The car show’s first year saw 35 vehicles, a number which doubled the following year. Taylor is hoping for more than 100 cars this year, and $2,500 in donations.

Victory Foursquare Church is located at 11911 State Ave. in Marysville. For more information call 360-651-1110.
