Packards roll into Valdosta

April 18, 2008

Valdosta- Drivers from around the country are touring Georgia to raise money for charity.

66-members of the Packard Club drove their 30 classic cars from as far away as Michigan.

Some of the cars, which date back to the early 1900's, are the only ones of their kind left in the world.

They've been touring South Georgia for the past week showing off their cars and raising money for the Colquitt County Arts Center.

"We only raise money for charity, we don't raise money for anything else and we try if possible to raise money for smaller charities," says Keith Tribe, one of the tour organizers.

Their tour will end Saturday night with a 40's era fundraiser at the Sunset Country Club in Moultrie.

It will include an auction with some packer gifts as well as entertainment from a 20 piece Glenn Miller Swing Band Orchestra.
