First Mid-Atlantic Mustang Round-Up To Benefit CHKD, Oct. 6

HAMPTON ROADS, Va. --Peninsula Mustang Enthusiasts, in cooperation with Wynne Ford of Hampton, will present the first Mid-Atlantic Mustang Round-Up from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6, at Wynne Ford, 1020 West Mercury Blvd. All proceeds will benefit Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters.

 

In addition to the car show, there will be plenty to look at from automotive and crafts vendors, as well as a variety of food. Events will also include a human truck pull in which six-man teams will vie for top prizes and bragging rights by pulling a Ford F-250 with one ton of weight over a timed course.

The Peninsula Mustang Enthusiasts have done an incredible job planning this family event which has something for everyone.”

All money raised will be used to purchase equipment, fund research and provide patient care programs at Children's Hospital.
