IDER, Ala. (WHNT) -- An event in DeKalb county this weekend will boast 200 cars, food, and activities but that's just the surface. It's benefiting a cause that's well worth it.

Inside classrooms at the Ider Special Needs Program, each student bends over his or her task, quietly working. Located at Ider School in DeKalb County, the program works with students from kindergarten until 21 years old.

They want to expand -- buy some needed equipment and provide the students even more avenues to learn. So on Saturday they're holding an event. "Cruising for Special Needs," special needs teacher Kim Keena says.

It's a car show sponsored by Kings Cruisers Car Club. "We're raising money for our sensory room and other equipment that we need for our program," Keena says.

The event will run from ten until two on Saturday, right at Ider School. It will feature 200 cars, food, music, and kids activities."We've got a bake sale, we've got an auction and just fun times," Keena says.

They will also hold a raffle, and there will be different categories and awards.

It costs two dollars for parking and donations are welcome.

As for the cause, well, no one can say it isn't worth it. "Oh, the kids. It's all about the kids," Keena says.

If you would like to register a car in the event you can do that Saturday morning at 9:00. Registration costs 20 dollars.
