The Automotive Technology and Automotive Collision Repair programs at Penta Career Center are hosting a “Cruise-In” Car Show, Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2019 from 5-8 p.m. on the Penta campus located at 9301 Buck Road in Perrysburg.

All types of vehicles and motorcycles are welcome to participate. Vehicle owners are admitted free of charge as long as they bring a non-perishable food item (e.g., peanut butter, boxed macaroni, cereal, or canned meat) or a personal hygiene item (e.g., soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.) to donate to the Penta Pantry. The pantry helps Penta students and their families who are in need of assistance.

Other activities that will take place at the Cruise-In include music and door prizes such as car care kits, gift certificates and products from several Penta programs. Students who are members of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) will have activities for children called the “Kids Garage” during the Cruise-In. Penta Cosmetology students will provide haircuts for a $5 minimum donation that will benefit the Penta Pantry. Food will be available for purchase from several food trucks. Tours of Penta’s Automotive Technology and Automotive Collision Repair programs will also be available.

In addition, awards will be presented to vehicle owners in the following categories: People’s Choice, Penta Alumni, Superintendent’s Choice, and Best Motorcycle.

The event is organized by Penta’s Automotive Technology and Automotive Collision Repair programs and SkillsUSA, a leadership organization for career-technical education students. For more information about the Cruise-In event, call 419-666-1120 Ext. 1428 or email randerson@pentacc.org.
