CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman’s Choice Rentals on Saturday reached out to help Ashley Wilson and Curt’s Closet, her local nonprofit clothing and accessory boutique that exclusively serves kids of families in need. The Cruise-In for Curt’s Closet drew vehicle enthusiasts for a good cause.

Choice Rentals’ Lashonda Yarbrough told The Tribune, “Choice Rentals, we’ve been open about seven, eight months, now.  So, you know, we’re new to the community, so we wanted to find a way to give back to our community.  The manager’s daughter, Mackenzie, actually went to school with Curt Wilson, so she knew Ms. Ashley.  She knew about the organization, so we thought, because she helps so many kids in Cullman, that was the best one to go with. That’s why we’re doing it.  We just want to give back to the community.  We want to raise some money and give some kids in Cullman some back-to-school supplies and clothes.  Whatever they need, whatever Ms. Ashley needs, we are here to do it for her today.”

The show, which offered prizes for different categories of vehicles, drew in a mix of modern factory customs and special editions, small shop customs, as well as vintage and antique cars and trucks and a few motorcycles.  Dog Gone Dogs was on-hand to feed exhibitors and visitors, while an Outlaw Sounds DJ kept the tunes coming.  LifeSouth, which is currently facing a shortage, had a bloodmobile onsite.

At the end of the show, Choice Rentals presented Wilson a check for $1,642.

Afterward, Wilson told The Tribune, “Today was a huge success,  I am truly lost for words. Choice Rentals put in so much hard work to make sure today was a success for Curt’s Closet. So many beautiful vehicles were registered in the show. I appreciate every one of them that chose to come out and support Curt’s Closet.”
