PRESQUE ISLE — A car show this weekend is being held to raise funds for former County resident David Cowett, who is being treated for multiple myeloma.

Cowett’s brothers are planning the event, Rob’s Pit Stop’s first annual Car Show, for Saturday, Sept. 29.

“Dave lives in Wilton now. He was a railroad welder in Kentucky prior to moving back to Maine. He’s been undergoing treatment for multiple myeloma for about seven years now,” said Rob Cowett, event co-organizer.

Funds raised from the car show will help cover medical and travel expenses.

“We’re asking for donations. There’s no fees being charged to participate. We’ll also have prizes throughout the day,” said Cowett.

The show will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 253 Fort Road in Presque Isle and will feature classic autos, some land speed vehicles, Spud Speedway cars, a few big rigs and more.

“Bring what you’ve got and have a good time,” said Tim Cowett, co-organizer.

For more information, call Rob at 764-6082. Donations can be sent to 253 Fort Road, Presque Isle, ME 04769, care of Dave Cowett.
