Advantage Behavioral Health Systems, which serves Madison County, will hold its fourth-annual “Cruise In and Children’s Carnival” Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Varsity on West Broad Street in Athens.
The event is sponsored by Friends of Advantage (FOA), a non-profit volunteer organization which raises funds and enhances the lives of people who are served by Advantage Behavioral Health Systems.
Car enthusiasts are invited to display their prized vehicles. There is a $10 registration fee for each entry, and trophies and plaques will be awarded for: top 10, best in show, best bike, best truck, best hot rod and the car club with the most cars present.
There will be games, free costume contests for children, adults and pets, plus Halloween “trunk or treating.”
Tommy Landrum will provide “Cruisin’ to the Oldies” musical entertainment. There will also be door prizes.
“All those who have attended this fall event in the past years agree that it is a delightful family event, as well as means of offering support for many valuable services in our community,” said organizers.
Advantage Behavioral Health Services is an organization dedicated to meeting the needs and improving the quality of life for citizens in 10 counties who are developmentally disabled, suffering with mental illness or struggling to overcome addiction to alcohol and drugs. The mission of FOA is to further enhance the lives of those served by Advantage by expanding knowledge and resources beyond those provided by families, government or insurance.
