The fourth cruise-in of the season in Dobson was held Saturday, drawing a varied field of classic and antique vehicles, a crowd of people, and raising money for a good cause.

The car show raises money for the local Toys For Tots and also individual needs of families throughout the community.

This is the third year of the Dobson cruise-ins, held the second Saturday of the each month, March through September, in downtown Dobson.

Generally around 100 cars are in display at each show, parked along the street for easy viewing.

Greg Hall, also brings his alpaca to visit the cruise-in and to show off his animal to any children who might be at the show.

Dan and Jewel Jenkins volunteer and provide music during the event time, which generally lasts from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m..

Central View Church donates free drinks to the event.

Door prizes are given away, which are donated by several businesses throughout the county.

A 50-50 drawing also takes place. Tickets are sold where a dollar amount is drawn then the ticket holder will receive 50 percent of the drawn amount.

Last year, the cruise-ins raised enough money so organizers were able to sponsor toys for around 70 families at Christmas.
