What started in 2013 as just a bunch of nice people with cool cars coming together to show their rides to a sick little boy has grown into an organized showcase, attracting hundreds of cars, and is the foundation's namesake.

Sportsplex Charity Car Show

October 14, 2023 in Athens, Alabama

Thanks to the Limestone County Mustang Club (of which Eli was a member), EBP has been the beneficiary of the Athens Sportsplex Charity Car Show in the past. The show is hosted and run by members of the Mustang Club. Traditionally, it is a "Show and Shine" event with cash prize drawings and 50/50 tickets. It attracts hundreds of vehicles with a variety of unique and interesting makes and models. All proceeds go to the charity being featured. Registration is the day of the event and is typically $10. Vendors are welcome and should contact Joseph Scott. Food is provided by the concession stand at the Sportsplex.
