Vintage car owners are invited to drive to the Twin Brook Winery in Gap Sunday, July 2 for Wheels in the Vineyard, an event that will benefit two medical research foundations.
Car enthusiasts may picnic in the vineyard between noon and 5 p.m. There will be door prizes and BBQ available for purchase, and the day will end with a rock and roll concert by Little Big Band from 6 to 9 p.m. Admission will be charged for the concert.
A gate fee of $5 per car will benefit the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation and the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation, two nonprofit foundations dedicated to assisting patients with Niemann-Pick disease, a serious metabolic disease caused by genetic mutations.
Admission to the evening concert under the stars is $10 for adults and $4 for children ages 5-12. Cruisers will receive discounted concert tickets.
The July 2 cruise is a new event, part of the Brandywine Valley Wine Trail "Roadkill" Barbecue weekend that Twin Brook is sharing with other Pennsylvania area wineries. In case of inclement weather the "Cruise-In" will be postponed to July 9 12 to 5 p.m.
