Racing For Kids to the Hill Car Show 2023

The 17th Annual Racing For Kids to the Hill car show and gathering took place on Aug. 30 in the Grosse Pointe Farms shopping district known as the Hill. Racing For Kids is a 501(c)(3) children’s charity that uses the popularity of motorsports to focus public attention and funding on the health care needs of children. The event featured a street fair that included games for kids, music, refreshments, car displays, the Globe of Thunder stunt show, and a scavenger hunt. This was followed by a cocktail reception at 6 p.m. with a live auction to raise funds for the Racing for Kids hospital visit program and the Teen Street Skills program. All proceeds go to various pediatric programs at Ascension St. John Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, the Henry Ford Health System – Cottage, and Corewell Health Beaumont Grosse Pointe Hospital. // Photographs by Christine M.J.
