The NWTC Car Show and Swap
Meet is organized by NWTC’s Auto Club. All
proceeds benefit the club, and support service-learning opportunities for automotive
students. At noon, the NWTC Auto Club will present a rehabbed 2006 Ford Fusion,
purchased with funds from last year’s show, to House of Hope, a Green Bay shelter for homeless pregnant

“The event just keeps
on getting bigger and better,” said Mark Ledvina, NWTC Automotive Technician
instructor and club advisor. “The attendees have a blast, and our students get
a great learning experience. They put a lot of work into the event and fixing
up the donated car. They get to pay it forward by helping someone in need.”
Admission is $3 per person,
and children 12 and under and seniors are free. To receive $1 off, attendees
are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item that will be donated to
NWTC’s Shared Harvest Food Cupboard. The event will take place rain or shine.
