The Northwest Piedmont Purple Heart Foundation will host a car/truck/motorcycle show on Saturday, June 25, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at VFW Post 5352 in Kernersville.
The speaker will be Harold Frank, a World War II Purple Heart recipient who was a prisoner of war and served in Normandy.

There is no charge for the general public to attend but donations are welcome.
The foundation is asking for a $25 donation for each vehicle that is entered in the show.
Spectators can vote on their favorite vehicle in each category with a $1 bucket vote.
There will be door prizes, a 50/50 raffle and plenty of food and drinks to go along with a baked goods auction.
All proceeds will benefit the Northwest Piedmont Purple Heart Foundation.
The foundation will also hold a dinner on Aug. 20 that is open to all Purple Heart recipients, their families, and Gold Star families.
The dinner will take place at RCR Racing Campus in Welcome.
