Classic car owners will have an opportunity to unite at Sunnehanna Country Club in Westmont on Aug. 27.

The Community Arts Center of Cambria County’s “Classic Car Cruise” is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. that day.

Owners can register for the show on the day of the event beginning at 10 a.m. The owners of the first 25 registered cars are to receive a dash plaque and T-shirt.

Arts center Executive Director Angela Godin said she and her staff are excited to offer their second car cruise to patrons this summer, and what makes this one special is that it will be held at Sunnehanna.

“As two longstanding iconic locations in Westmont, we are elated to partner with Sunnehanna Country Club for such a unique event,” Godin said. “Sunnehanna Country Club has been so supportive of the arts center for years, and we are so pleased with each and every outcome. This is just another of many events that our members and community enjoy.”

Ron Meyers, who serves as general manager at Sunnehanna Country Club, said that he and his staff are also glad to be involved.

“Sunnehanna Country Club is a great classic golf course and country club, so we are very excited to host an amazing collection of great classic automobiles on our storied grounds,” Meyers said. “Since 1923, Sunnehanna has always been associated with the best of the best, so as you make your way up our winding drive, you and your prized automobile are now amongst the best of the best.”

Food vendors, live music, and a 50/50 raffle are to round out the event. Also, a children’s coloring contest is set to take place at 1:30 p.m.
