ABOUT BLAIRSVILLE CRUISERS
The Blairsville Cruisers officially became a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization in August 2019. All donations and sponsorships are fully tax deductible.
The Cruise-in on the Square in downtown Blairsville started in 2007. From there the club and its members worked constantly to make a name for themselves in the area. In no time at all, the Cruise-in on the Square became a Friday night block party at O'Reilly Auto Parts with a cruise to the square the following day. With the huge success of the block parties, the Cruisers relocated to a field next to Walmart in Blairsville to accomodate all the participants. During the summer of 2013, the block parties were moved to the Union County Farmers Market in Blairsville. The new venue offered more than 85 covered parking spaces, many other uncovered parking areas, and other amenities to allow for hundreds of vehicles and spectators. The success of these events over the years is a credit to the many car enthusiasts who participate month after month and year after year. The Cruisers held their first annual Salute to Veterans Car Show at the Union County Farmers Market in November 2018, and it has proven to be a huge success. The club has grown to include members from many surrounding counties. Club members donate their time and talents in many different ways; their efforts, along with the support of local communities and sponsors, has helped make the Cruisers the club they are today.
The The Blairsville Cruisers proudly support: Shop with a Cop Program in Blairsville, Shop With a Cruiser, Union County Sherriff’s Gift a Gift Program, Shop With a Hero in Hiawassee, Catalyst Church Kid’s Christmas, Clay County Sheriff’s Cops 4 Kids, local Veteran’s organizations, and local food pantries. Although Cruisers work diligently throughout the year to help make the holidays brighter for children in need in our community, they also provide support throughout the year by assisting families and individual veterans with special needs. While Cruisers cannot meet the needs of everyone in the community everyday, the support of local sponsors and the work of club members make a positive difference in our local communities. Individual Cruisers are also members of other civic organizations and volunteer for other worthy causes. The Blairsville Cruisers are grateful for the opportunities for service and support.
