St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 5150 S.E. Railway Ave., Cove Road at Dixie Highway, Stuart will have its second Cars & Crafts for Backpacks fundraiser on Sunday, March 1, from 1 to 4 p.m., on church grounds at Cove Road and Dixie Highway.
In last year’s inaugural event, more than $1,900 was raised, enabling the church to buy school supplies to fill more than 750 backpacks. The backpacks were then given to children in the 15th annual backpack giveaway on Aug. 3. The next such giveaway is slated for Saturday, Aug. 1.
Planned this year are classic/antique cars on display from the local No Name Car Club overseen by Carlos Gonzalez; vendors and crafts for sale; food; games; a 50/50 raffle. Also on tap is a silent auction for a signed T-shirt by NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty.
Volunteers also will be taking donations to sponsor a child at $20 to fill one backpack each.
To donate, make checks payable to “St. Luke’s Episcopal Church” (P.O. Box 117, Port Salerno, FL 34992) and note in the memo area: “Back to School Event”.
