A local 9-year-old girl who is fighting her second battle with brain cancer is this year's beneficiary of the 6th Annual Bike and Custom Car Show, scheduled for June 2 at the bike shop, located at the corner of Killingly Street and Oakdale Avenue.
Jenna Jacques and her family attended a recent press conference with members of Rhode Island Pink Heals and Anthony Ferranti Jr., owner of and Anthony's Auto Body to announce this year's event.
It's the latest in a recent series of ties among the groups and the town — last year, Mayor Joseph Polisena ceremonially , and ACI Customs hosted a bike and car show to help .
Pink Heals also named its rescue vehicle, which travels to various events to raise awareness and funds for the fight against all forms of cancer, after Jenna.
There's also a bike run scheduled for the day of the event; registration is $25 per vehicle. Meal tickets are also available for $10 each.
Along with food, music, and a display of impressive hardware, this year's bike and car show will also include a $20-per-ticket raffle for a custom pink 2012 Polaris Outlaw 50cc ATV.
Rain date is June 3. Registrations now being accepted at ACI Customs, 539 Killingly St., or visit www.acicustoms.com for more information.
