Crusin’ for the Food Basket Saturday Night
Big Island classic cars, hot rods and sports cars will be converging on Kona’s HPM Building Supply parking lot on Saturday evening, June 10, bringing donations for The Food Basket – Hawai‘i Island Food Bank and showcasing their rides from 5 until 9 p.m.
The highlight of the event will be 1950s-style car hop service by the gals from the Echo City Knockouts roller derby team. They’ll deliver window trays and menus from Kohala Burger and Tacos to cars in the special car hop service area of the HPM Building Supply parking lot.
Chef Cary Peterson and his staff will be serving up their famous hamburgers, tacos, fries and cold drinks for the Knockouts to roll out to the customers (cash transactions only on Saturday night).
HPM Building Supply, the host for the Show n’ Shine and Car Hop Night, will offer prizes from the DJ tent next to The Food Basket van at the front of the recently remodeled store on the corner of Makala Boulevard and Luhia Street across from Kona Commons.
Participants and spectators dropping off non-perishable food items and cash will get Lucky Tickets for drawings that will be held every half-hour.
HPM will also have their Big Island Toyota and Pratt & Lambert Paints Summer Truck Giveaway prize truck on display and hold a special Saturday night open house in their refurbished store.
From 5 until 9 p.m. the expansive HPM Building Supply parking lot will feature a Show n’ Shine for owners of all classic and specialty vehicles to show off their wheels under extra lighting provided by Kona’s Service Rentals and Transmission Technology.
Groups such as Paradise Cruisers and the Big Island VW Club will be out in full force for The Food Basket benefit.
The public and all tricked-out cars, trucks and motorcycles are welcome.
HPM Building Supply is located at 74-5511 Luhia St.
