FAIRFIELD, OH (June 16, 2022)—Start your engines! The 8th Annual Cruise In For Kids Car Show returns to the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields on Sunday, June 26, 2022 from 9am-4pm!
A tradition in the Greater Cincinnati car community, The Cruise In For Kids Car Show raises funds to support the ongoing mission of The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields. Over the previous seven years, the event has raised more than $100,000 to support the athletic and recreational experiences provided to the special needs community by The Nuxhall Foundation.
“When I think of the team we’ve got putting on the Cruise In For Kids Car Show each year, I’m overcome with excitement and energy,” said Kim Nuxhall, President and Board Chairman of The Nuxhall Foundation and The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields. “This is a team of volunteers that truly fires on all cylinders, and they’re fueled by hearts of gold. Their hard work has created an event that is now a tradition in our community, and we look forward to hosting it each and every year.”
A team of more than a dozen volunteer committee members, led by chairmen Steve Crain and Ken Rhodus, spend months planning to deliver a championship-caliber event each year.
Registration for participating cars, trucks, and motorcycles is $20, and general admission to the event is free. Last year, more than 200 vehicles were featured during the event.
Throughout the day, the event will also feature music, raffles, door prizes, and a split the pot contest with all proceeds benefitting the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields. Food trucks from Hammann’s Catering, Chester’s Pizza, and Flubs will be available throughout the event. Joey The Can-Do Kangaroo, the new mascot at The Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields, will also make an appearance with copies of the companion children’s book also available for purchase.
A record number of corporate sponsors signed on to support this year’s event, including a trophy sponsorship from NAPA and D&S Auto Parts.
The 8th Annual Cruise In For Kids Car Show opens for registration at 9am (no early registration permitted) on Sunday, June 26 at the Joe Nuxhall Miracle League Fields (4850 Groh Lane in Fairfield).
