The Tinkers Car Club will hold its re-scheduled spring Cruz-In from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Halifax Square Shopping Center parking lot located on Route 501 North, South Boston.

Italian Delight and Frutopia are again sponsoring the event.

Admission is free to the public, and all vintage, classic car, trucks and motorcycle owners are welcome to participate at no charge as well. Members of the public will have the opportunity to see up close all the vehicles on display and talk to their owners.

Wayne Bowen, president of the Tinkers Car Club, expressed his appreciation to all the car, truck and motorcycle owners who have supported the club’s Cruz-Ins over the last 30 years, and he hopes there will be a large turnout of vehicles this time.

He said, “Our club is indebted to Andrea Ruotolo-Sarnataro, president of Italian Delight Family Restaurant, Inc., and to Vinny Sarnataro, president of Frutopia, for sponsoring our Cruz-Ins for so many years and for their continued encouragement and support for what our club does.”

The Tinkers use donations and membership dues exclusively to help needy families and individuals in the Halifax County area throughout the year. In this regard, Italian Delight and Frutopia continue their tradition of donating a portion of the proceeds from their food sales during the Cruz-In hours to the Tinkers Car Club’s long-standing program that helps needy families and individuals.

Andrea of Italian Delight prides himself on operating a family style restaurant and is pleased that so many families, especially those with children, come out to see the cars on display at the Cruz-Ins.

He encourages visitors to have dinner at his establishment during the event, because the increased food sales will further help the Tinkers with its needy families and individual programs.

Bowen concluded by saying, “It is a privilege for our club to help area residents who are in need. It is very gratifying.”
