NEWPORT NEWS — The Sheriff’s office here will host its 7th annual bike and car show Sunday to benefit adults and children with autism and other disorders.
All proceeds of the free event will benefit Project Lifesaver.
Project Lifesaver is a national program that enrolls adults and children with varying disabilities such as Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, down syndrome, autism and traumatic brain injuries, and tracks them using a special bracelet with a transmitter, to find the individuals should they wander from home, according to the website.
The caregivers or family members can call the Sheriff’s Office to alert them that their loved one is missing — authorities would then dispatch a Search and Rescue team. The program is free and funded by donations.
This year’s car and bike show will have more than a 100 cars, trucks and motorcycles and will include music, food vendors, raffles and other activities.
The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Todd Stadium, 12465 Warwick Blvd.
Participating vehicle owners can register for $20 in addition to bringing two pet food items for the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter, according to the announcement.
