HOLLY HILL, Fla. – While many annual Ford and Mustang club shows are dedicated to charitable causes of all sorts, it’s not often that we see a car show totally dedicated to local school children. But that’s exactly the cause behind the yearly “Cruisin’ The Hill for School Supplies” event held in Holly Hill, Florida. Hosted by the city of Holly Hill – known as “the city with a heart” just outside of Daytona Beach -- the show’s purpose, as stated in the title, is to collect school supplies for the school kids in Volusia County, Florida.
The show is held in the front lawn of the Holly Hill City Hall, and is open to all years and models of vehicles. All that was required for registration were new, unused school supplies (or a donation to purchase same), and it was managed by none other than area teachers. This year’s 5th Annual Cruisin’ the Hill for School Supplies car show was held on Halloween day, and featured DJ music, food and drink, a 50/50 raffle and other attractions, including a special racing writers/authors round table and autograph session. Awards included the Mayor's Pick, Police Chief's Pick, plus a Club Participation and People's Choice selection. As with any car show in Florida, there were plenty of classic and collectible Fords and Mustangs in attendance. We were lucky to have Ford superfan and SAAC-MCR club founder Jeff Burgy attend the show with his camera, because he was able to send us photos of his favorite Blue Oval rides that he spotted there to share with you in the gallery below:
