Although it was a little wet and cold on Saturday, the Grand River Drive Out ALS Car Show at the Shops of Grand River turned out great. This event was hosted by Miss Leeds Area Outstanding Teen, Emma Terry, and approximately $1400 was raised to benefit the Alabama ALS Association. Fox 6 showed up and covered the event. Among those who came out and helped with the car show included Sandra McGuire, Chris and Christy McCombs, Pat Shipp and Robert Mills. Thank you to all who came, brought your vehicles and supported this great cause!
