Block Party

est. 2013


Big Blocks and Small Blocks, All are Invited to the Party!

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 in multiple communities, attracting hundreds of cars, and is the namesake of the foundation. Eli’s Block Party is the cornerstone of fundraising for the foundation and is designed as an exciting way to involve others. Any group or collection of individuals can apply to host an Eli’s Block Party car show or cruise-in in their community and be a part of the foundation’s mission. The car shows are strictly judged with trophy awards in many categories and include music, food, and vendors. Also, if possible, each show features a Headlight Hero, a local cancer kid in the community. Take advantage of opportunities to sponsor, participate, and even host a show or cruise-in to help Eli’s Block Party fight childhood cancer with Muscle and Style.

Eli's Ride & Remember Cruise

Join us for the 3rd Annual Eli's Ride & Remember August 15, 2020. Take this opportunity to enjoy a cruise and reflect on the lives of those who have passed on due to cancer. Eli passed away August 5, 2017. We will remember him and others during a cruise. The cruise launches at 3 p.m. from the Athens Sportsplex and travels a "scenic" route to McFarland Park in Florence, Alabama. This is a "Bring Your Own Picnic" event out of respect for COVID guidelines. We intend to have a photographer available at McFarland to take pictures of your ride in front of the Tennessee River (payment should be worked out between you and the photographer directly). This is a free event, but donations are appreciated. Join us for the cruise or at either end of the journey!
