REI Oklahoma invites the public to the sixth annual Cruisin’ for a Cure Benefit Car Show, which will be held on Saturday, Sept. 13 to benefit the March of Dimes and Colton’s Main Street Run. The car show will be held at the Choctaw Event Center on Hwy 69/75 in Durant, Oklahoma.


Automotive enthusiasts are invited to come out and enjoy a day of hot rods, food and music presented by REI Oklahoma and Choctaw Casino Resort. Show hours are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., with car show entry registration from 8 a.m. to noon. The first 50 registered cars, trucks and motorcycles receive a commemorative car show dash plaque and goody bag. Spectator entry is free, however donations will be accepted for the benefit causes.


“Proceeds from last year’s show allowed us to donate more than $7,000 each to March of Dimes and Colton’s Run,” said Scott Dewald, REI Oklahoma President & CEO. “Cruisin’ for a Cure is our major fundraiser and we are fortunate to have such great sponsors who continue to help us expand this family friendly event.”


Car show awards range from best engine to the best truck, street rod, convertible and more. More than 65 trophies are awarded for first, second and third place with 20 classes including the Mustang class, two motorcycle classes and the Camaro class.


Music will be playing throughout the event, and lunch items and drinks will be available for a minimal price. Car Show participants will be eligible for raffle giveaways and everyone will have an opportunity to participate in the 50/50 drawing.


All makes and models of vehicles are welcome and interested. Car show participants can register by calling 800-658-2823 or when they arrive the day of the event at $20 per vehicle. 100 percent of proceeds from this event will be donated to these two very worthy causes.
