A local neighborhood is giving back to the first responders who helped save a Curtis Pond home after it caught fire in January.
The Curtis Pond Community Car Show will be held Saturday, April 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 154 Almora Loop.
Registration costs $20 and will begin at 7 a.m. at the corner of Gage Drive and Almora Loop, said Steve Broy, owner of the Scanlon Road home that was nearly destroyed Jan. 27 when an air compressor in the garage caught fire.
Local firefighters responded in under four minutes and extinguished the two-alarm blaze, Broy said.
“If it wasn’t for their quick response and actions, I could have lost my entire house,” said Broy.
Family friend Charlene Clarke first offered to give the car show proceeds to the family to help rebuild but was told by Broy to instead donate the money to first responders, Clarke said.
“They do a lot around Mooresville to help keep people safe,” said Clarke. “It doesn’t hurt to help them every now and then.”
Clarke hopes to raise $4,000-$5,000, she said.
Food will be available for purchase and there will also be vendors and raffles, Clarke said.
The car show is free and open to the public.
For more information about the car show, email Broy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Clarke at 704 235-7313.
