Along with The Vintage Auto Club of Ocean County and Fulfill of Monmouth/Ocean County, we will hold a food drive utilizing the classic cars, the second Wed. of the month June-Sept, the same dates as Crusin' Downtown. Food will be collected from the community and the classic cars will "parade" the food to The B.E.A.T Center in Toms River.
