It looks like it’s been a while since I finished up an event coverage for the site. I’ve been busy with work, travel, and other projects. Well, it’s time to get back to it and finish some that have been in queue for a while. Back in the beginning of October, I headed out to Market Street in the Woodlands to check out one of my favorite meets, which of course is The Woodlands Car Club’s Cars and Coffee for a Cause gathering.
Why is it one of my favorites? For starters, it’s relatively close to where I reside in the Spring area. It’s also hosted in the morning so it doesn’t usually tie up my Sunday plans. The main reason has to be the size and variety of rides for this event. The rides varies each month and usually totals over a hundred rides out here. It’s not so overwhelm where you can’t see and enjoy all the rides. This month had a higher turnout but there’s usually only a few Asian imports, which I wouldn’t mind seeing a few more well-built ones make an appearance. There’s a great turnout of modern and classic muscle mixed with some antiques and exotics cars on display up and down Market Street. Last but definitely not least is the event is a chance for car enthusiast to give back to the local charities while enjoying some rides that are put on display.
I arrived a little later than originally planned, the street was packed with cars already on display. I ended up finding a spot on one of the connecting side streets. As soon as I parked, I grabbed my camera and made my rounds snapping away on this warm October morning. I tried to snap photos of each and every ride, but not all of them stayed for the duration of the event missing their photo opportunity. Towards the end of the meet, there was even a little happy birthday singing to one of the participants of the event. I wrapped up my coverage soon after that.
As I said before, this event gives back and helps out local charities. They do change it up every quarter with this quarter’s collection goes towards the Will Herdon Research Fund (HOPE). Will was diagnosed with a rare and fatal neurodegenerative disorder when he was 6 years old. Unfortunately there’s currently no treatment or cure for Batten Disease. Their goal is to further the Batten disease research to save Will’s life and other children like him. If you would like to help, you can visit their page on Beyond Battens site for more info.
