Fundraiser Saturday for Cresson family

July 23, 2014

A car show fundraiser and an auction will be Saturday for the six-member family that lost everything a week ago when fire destroyed their home.

James and Christina Pearce along with their four children – ages 6 to 16 – were left without a home after their three-bedroom house on Wildflower Court in Cresson burned.

Organizer Cathy Taylor said the car show will feature “rat” rods, classics and vintage vehicles on display from 2-5 p.m. Motorcycle groups will also be on hand at the Brazos Drive-In on West Pearl Street. Pinup models from a rat rod magazine will also make an appearance, she said.

Admission will be $5 per person. Children age 10 and under get in free. A $5 brisket dinner will follow at about 5 p.m. at the VFW on Highway 377 West.

Businesses with items to donate for the auction can contact Taylor at 817-894-7080. Call Taylor at 817-894-7080 for more information.
