To start out the festivities for the day, the Mustang Rally of the Finger Lakes group will be driving into Friendly Ford for a Cars and Coffee cruise in. Friendly Ford will be highlighting the new Ford lineup of vehicles. If you are interested in cruisin in and displaying your vehicle, everyone is welcome. Also joining us, Finger Lakes Corn Hole will be hosting a Corn Hole tournament.

The activities don’t stop at Friendly Ford. Geneva Harley Davidson is inviting everyone to ride or drive in to check out their festivities. Area motorcyclists are encouraged to ride in and show off their beautiful bikes. Geneva Harley will be hosting some awesome vendors: Henna Rising henna artist, massage therapist, essential oils, after market parts, and so much more.

Thrive to Survive will be hosting a Chicken BBQ and great raffles for additional fund raising. DJ Tommy Bucklin will be entertaining us with music from 10-2 and Roll the Dice will have a live performance from 2-5.

If you are 18 or older with a valid drivers license we hope you will consider coming out to support Thrive to Survive in reaching our goal of 300 test drives. While you are onsite for a test drive, join us for great food, friends, live entertainment and a corn hole tournament. 

100% of all funds raised will be utilized to provide emotional and financial support to area adults in treatment for cancer.
