Our Day at the Classic and Crazy Car Show Fundraiser

Last Saturday we attended our very first Classic (and Crazy) Car Show at Stony Hill Baptist Church, as a fundraiser for the Seneri family, whose son Paxton battled medullablastoma for 11 months. Our church, once again, stepped up and stood in the gap for a family deeply affected by cancer. (How well we remember the outpouring of love we felt at Standing in the Gap for Ernie Baker)

It was a beautiful Fall day and there were cars galore...every shape and size, in pristine condition, on display and hoping for our votes. How fitting that even the little ones got involved!

Car owners paid an entry fee, attendees bought ballots for voting, raffles were held, hot dogs were sold, and a silent auction took place for items from tools to floral arrangements. A live auction was held  for a handmade Hungary Catepillar quilt. Fight Like PAXTON, a non-profit created to benefit other families battling childhood cancers, was accepting donations and selling t-shirts. It was a glorious day where everyone came alongside the Seneris and celebrated the life and legacy of Paxton. From race cars to VW Bugs and Corvettes, these cars were gorgeous!

Mom's favorite, a Ford like the one she road around in as a little girl.

This Jeep was the big winner for the day!

Amidst all the NC State red, we had to love this Carolina blue!

EZ thoroughly enjoyed taking little grandson Samuel around to see all the "beep beeps".

Mom was very excited when her raffle number was called and she took home a brand new Vizio 19" HDTV!

It was such a joy to be a part of something we know, from personal experience, will benefit and bless the Seneri family. We are also very grateful to be part of a church body that loves and cares for others.


  1. Looks like a fun time and the pictures of the grandkids and family are adorable!

  2. Yes, we are so fortunate to have been on both the giving and receiving end of the body of Christ at Stony Hill! They truly know how to bless others!
