Gresham Optimist Club and Oregon Beat the Heat to hold cruise-in

Another weekend: another car show.  This time it is the Optimist Club of Gresham, Oregon and Beat the Heat Cruise-in from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, June 26, at the Gresham High School field at Burnside Road and Main Avenue.

The Cruise-in is a benefit for Optimist and Beat the Heat community projects.  This year more than 200 hot rods, classic cars, muscle cars and motorcycles are expected.  Twenty-five awards will be given in a variety of categories.  Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the entry fee is $10 per car.

Beat the Heat Racing is a national organization formed in 1994.  The Oregon Beat the Heat Racing organization was started in 2001 to fight the growing number of street races that were occurring and endangering lives in the Gresham community. With the motto "It's all about the kids," it is easy to see why the Optimist Club makes a perfect partner.

The 1992 Chevy Camaro used by the Gresham Police and shown above will be on display.   Image credit: www.obthracing.com.
