This free event raises awareness in April, which is Child Abuse Prevention Month.  It features nearly 300 cars and over 50 custom motorcycles with awards for each class. The event includes block parties, a DJ, over 60 food and merchandise vendors that have items available for purchase, and a large children’s area featuring a variety of activities for kids.

At the end of the day, there will be a drawing for the grand prize 2017 Harley-Davidson Street Glide motorcycle. Tickets can be bought online on the agency’s website: FamilyGuidanceCenterLubbock.org. For more information call FGOC at (806) 747-5577.

All proceeds from this event go directly toward funding programs that Family Guidance & Outreach Center provides free to the community, such as parenting, life skills, and anger management classes to adult caregivers in need of resources and school outreach programs geared toward educating children on bullying, self-esteem, positive life choices, and much more.
