LONG BEACH, Calif. (April 16, 2014) — Employees at Performance Plus Tire & Auto Superstore are gearing up for one of three “locally world famous” vintage vehicle events it hosts each year.
The evening of Saturday, May 17, the Long Beach-based dealership’s huge lot — and one next door — will be transformed for its annual spring BBQ and cruise night.
The shows “attract all eras of vintage vehicles and are always a crowd pleaser,” Performance Plus said. The family-friendly event also will feature live entertainment, a free BBQ and other activities.
All funds raised at the company’s cruise night events support its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Last fall volunteers at the dealership packed more than 1,700 boxes of food that fed more than 850 local needy families, according to Joyce Feldman, vice president of marketing/events.
When is the last time you attended one of the national tire industry trade shows, such as SEMA, ITEC or the North American Tire & Retread Expo?
|I try and take in at least one show a year.||
|I usually attend one every few years.||
|There are so many tire maker and distributor meetings each year, I don’t see a need to attend one of the national shows.||
|I don’t find value in these shows and haven’t been to one in years.||
|I’d like to but I am too busy||
