The fifth annual Hotrods 4 Hearts car show, designed as a fundraiser for the American Heart Association, will take place Aug. 5, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Griot’s Garage, 3333 S. 38th St., Tacoma.
Hotrods 4 Hearts was started by Tacoma’s Scott Britz. His father passed away in 1998 from a heart attack, and he had a nephew pass with a hole in his heart in 2002. That sparked Britz to take the initiative to start a car show to benefit the American Heart Association. Britz and his father were incredibly interested in cars, his father having taught him how to work on cars. The hobby had always been something special that they spent time doing together. A car show felt like the most fitting way to give back in his father’s memory.
Hotrods 4 Hearts is family friendly, free to attend (unless registering a car, which costs $15), with lots of fun raffles, activities for kids, food and entertainment. It is designed for a full day of fun for families without breaking the bank. Also, 100 percent of proceeds go to the American Heart Association.
There are goody bags for the first 100 cars that register. All cars, trucks and bikes welcomes.
