Cars, food, fun and more were all part of the first annual fundraising campaign for the Dancing Davis Shaking Off Cancer Foundation auto show at GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville. All proceeds from the event, which was held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 1, benefited the foundation.

The site’s parking lot was filled with rows and rows of old and new cars, trucks, motorcycles and jeeps, giving car enthusiasts plenty to see and plenty of opportunities to talk to car owners. In addition to the cars on display, there was a bouncy castle for the kids, a DJ providing music, a 50/50 raffle and Dancing Davis clothes, which were available for purchase.

Those looking for lunch could visit Willie’s BBQ tent, where barbecue and hot dogs were available for purchase, and the Cold Skool Ice Cream Truck offered a wide variety of new ice creams to enjoy during the day.

Dancing Davis Shaking Off Cancer Foundation was founded in 2015 in honor of Davis Overcash, who was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma liver cancer at the age of five. This cancer affects only two to three people in a million.

Davis fought a tough fight, and after surgery and chemotherapy, he won. He has been cancer free for six years and is now a healthy, active 11-year-old who continues his passion for dance, especially tap.

During the event, Mika Overcash, Davis’s mother, shared that they were “overwhelmed with the support today. It appears to be 200 cars (on display). We plan to do this again next year, we hope, ”she noted. “All support (from the event) goes to local families fighting childhood cancer.”
