The Dixieland Cruisers were chartered in 1988 as a non-profit organization with twelve original members. Since that date the twelve have grown to over a hundred. Over the years, we have given to numerous charities and have participated in many other organizational activities, which sponsor particular charities.
Our members pay a small nominal
amount of $20.00 per family and by joining make a commitment
to work hard to support our chosen charities.
Once a year, we have one large
event, which yields the money with which we donate.
This project is our Yearly Dixieland Cruisers Car
Show, which is held in late April.
At this time, we are preparing for this, our 16th
Annual Car Show. This
show welcomes antique cars, hot rods, specialty vehicles and
We are contacting local merchants
for donations of money to purchase trophies, or merchandise
which we give as door prizes.
We also make up ditty bags for each participant, and
would appreciate those little trinkets which have the name
of your business imprinted
on them. We
will also be selling raffle tickets on a stainless steel
grill to help to build the profits.
We have a large participation
from the local community, as well as many who return each
year from other Georgia areas, Florida, South Carolina, and
We want you to know the charities
which we have supported in past years from the profits of
the car shows: Sheriff’s
Youth Ranch, Alee Temple Crippled Children’s Hospital,
Muscular Dystrophy, American Diabetes Association, American
Heart Association, Breast Cancer Research, Safe Shelter and
Runaway Homes in Savannah, Tybee Historical Preservation
Army, Savannah City Mission, Empty Stocking Fund, and a
Memorial to Slain 3rd ID Soldiers in Iraq War.
