OHIO VALLEY — The Gallia-Jackson-Meigs-Vinton Continuum of Care will hold their ninth annual fundraiser Saturday.

The money raised will be used to help meet the basic needs of homeless children and their families in Meigs and neighboring counties.

The event, titled “Driving Out Homelessness,” will run from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. at the Kountry Resort Campground (formerly Royal Oak), 44705 Resort Road, Racine. The event will include a car show, Chinese auction, activities for children, concessions, and entertainment by K&D Karaoke. The event is open to the public and will be conducted rain or shine.

Interested parties can register for the car show between 10 a.m and noon for a $10 entry fee. Trophy awards include best of show up to 1989 and runner-up. Other awards will be given for best of show 1990 and up, and runner up.

There will also be a best of show and runner up for motorcycles and trucks. Top 20 trophies and door prizes will also be awarded to the car show participants. Trophy award presentations will begin at 2 p.m.

Additional ticket drawings will take place after the trophies have been presented. The Chinese auction consists of a variety of items which include NASCAR collectibles, household décor, restaurant certificates and much more. Tickets are purchased and placed in a bag designated for the item you hope to win.

Drawings will begin at approximately 2:30 p.m. Those who purchase tickets, but cannot stay for the drawing must designate someone to hold their tickets and claim their winnings because all items need to be distributed the day of the event. The event has the option of a 50/50 drawing, lottery ticket tree, and a silent auction.

Questions concerning the fundraiser may be directed to Linda Michael (740) 416- 4907.
