Design Engineering Inc. will launch a new cruise-in car show this summer. The inaugural 2016 Cruisin’ Times Lucky 7 Road Show Cruise-In car show is planned for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 18 at the company’s headquarters in Avon Lake, Ohio.
“DEI is very excited to host this custom car show at our facility. In the past we enjoyed hosting a stop for race cars and drivers who were competing in the annual Tire Rack’s One Lap of America and invited the local community and media to visit the event at the DEI facility. That event was so successful that we wanted to develop more events that will allow DEI to share our passion with others,” said Tom Miller, DEI’s vice president. of marketing and sales.
A 50/50 raffle will be held during the cruise-in to benefit the Friendship Animal Protective League, in memory of Ken Moore, a former DEI employee who lost his battle with cancer in February.
The DEI Cruise-In will include music, barbecue from Jones Bones BBQ, raffles, and DEI merchandise. A scratch and dent sale area will also be open.
A rain date for the event has been set for June 19 in the event of inclement weather. Admission and parking is free for this public event, according to DEI.
