Organizers of the 10th annual Cars & ‘Q for the Cause are supercharged about fueling their best fundraising year on record. The award-winning car show and party hosted by Choate Construction in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Georgia chapter returns to Choate’s Sandy Springs headquarters May 5 from 3 to 6 p.m., and is on the threshold of raising over $1.5 million to fund a cure for cystic fibrosis, the genetic lung disorder affecting about 30,000 in the U.S.
The event has grown by leaps and bounds in its 10-year history, and now tops 1,200 attendees enjoying 120-plus stellar cars; a generous spread of BBQ from Jim ‘n Nicks; continuous pours from local craft breweries Lagunitas, Gate City, Pontoon and Eventide; silent auction items; live music and more. Last year alone, Cars & ‘Q raised a record-breaking $435,433 for the foundation.
