12th Annual Car Show benefits Faith Presbyterian Hospice

The 12th annual car show hosted by Lake Cities Misfits Car Club was held Sept. 26 at 9 a.m. at Huffines Subaru in Corinth, Texas. The event was free to the public but was designed to benefit Faith Presbyterian Hospice (FPH).

FPH is the largest nonprofit hospice organization in Dallas and provides faith-based programs and services to support the wishes of patients and ensure a meaningful end-of-life journey.

“We are thrilled about this fundraising opportunity and plan to use the funds to continue providing hospice care and programming for patients and their families,” said John Mezo, executive director at Faith Presbyterian Hospice.  “We are proud to offer innovative programs including Faithful Wishes, a program that grants personal requests to make dreams come true; Faithful Presence, providing patients and their families with recorded messages from their loved ones; and Faithful Paws, a program bringing comfort to patients through the companionship of certified animals. In addition, we use funding to provide a Child and Family Bereavement program with peer support groups (Faith Kids) and family grief camps (Camp Faith), which provide safe places for families to be with others who have similar experiences.”

The event organizer, Brad Soper, began hosting the event, and others like it, after his dad passed in hospice care.

“After having experienced the wonderful care and compassion provided by hospice to several of my family members, including my father who lived in Florida, I held our first car show benefiting Faith Presbyterian Hospice after my dad passed away. I wanted to somehow give back for what was given to us, but I couldn’t do it without the support of Huffines Kia/Subaru Corinth, 50-plus volunteers, and the vehicle owners,” Soper told dallasdoinggood.com. “This is a really big show featuring more than 157 vehicles – the most ever, hundreds of fans, and vendors selling food and merchandise. Everyone has a good time for a very important cause.”

In addition to cars from every era, there was shaved ice, a food truck, a t-shirt painter, a dye-caster and family friendly music playing throughout the venue.

“COVID-19 forced my family to be indoors too much this year and my husband is a car guy,” said Lindsay Sellers, CPA at Forefront Living. “When the opportunity came up to support the organization, get out of our house, and see classic cars, I thought it was an opportunity we could not pass up. My kids asked a lot of questions about what made the cars unique, so it was fun to see them take an interest in and appreciate all the hard work people have put into each car.”
