Hillsborough, NJ: The Amwell Valley Cricket Club (AVCC) will host its second annual charity cricket match and car show on Saturday, July 28, at the Hillsborough Golf and Country Club in Hillsborough, NJ. All proceeds will benefit Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center. Spectators and car show participants are asked to make a $25 donation and are invited to stay for an afternoon reception. AVCC members are hoping for an even bigger attendance than at last year’s successful event, which raised $4,500 for HRCC.
Cricket begins at 10 a.m., with AVCC facing off against British Officers Cricket Club of Philadelphia. The car show kicks off at 12 p.m. Prizes will be given for sports car and vintage car sections, as well as the popular “People’s Choice.” A reception will be held at 3 p.m. and will feature drinks and food as well as a charity auction and live music by the band Satellite Hearts. The reception is open to all car show participants and spectators. Door prizes will also be given out to kids.
“If you’ve never seen a cricket match before, this is the time to do it,” said AVCC President Alan George. “It’s the perfect opportunity to learn about a local club that is the #1 recreational cricket club in New Jersey, and at the same time support our regional cancer center.”
