DERBY, Conn. (WTNH) — When people come together to combine something they love with a love for helping others, what you get is a car show and a food drive, all in one. The owners of Heav’nly Donuts are calling everyone with generous hearts to help feed those in need, and check out some cool classic cars in the meantime.
Joining us Saturday on Good Morning Connecticut, the owner of Heav’nly Donuts in Derby, Ernie Badas, shares his excitement for the third annual “Dust-Off Car Cruise”. This year’s car show is being called the “Fill the Crosley” Food Drive because organizers are encouraging everyone to bring nonperishable food items to stuff into a 1948 Crosley station wagon.
Badas tells News 8 that all the items will go towards benefiting people in need through the Spooner House in Shelton.
The event will be taking place Sunday, April 12 from noon to 5 p.m. It is being held at Heav’nly Donuts at 658 New Haven Ave. The double-duty event will not only help those who are in need, but will give classic car lovers a chance to “dust off” their rides in preparation for the upcoming car cruise season. Badas says this is the first car show of the season.
