“Tessa’s Show” is a Car, Truck and Bike Spectacular, will take place Saturday, May 11, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Dempsey’s Diner, 1140 Ceitus Parkway, Cape Coral.

The event is a benefit for Tessa Santagate and her family. Right before this past Christmas, 14-year-old Tessa was diagnosed with a extremely rare Wilms tumor. After a tough first surgery and the first eight out of 24 chemo treatments to be followed by radiation, Tessa is waiting for her next surgery to take place with a liver/kidney transplant specialist.

It doesn’t matter if your car is old or new, classic or modern. All owners of all makes and models are welcome to exhibit their ride and qualify for a chance win Best Car In Show. The registration fee is $20. All proceeds to benefit Tessa and the Children’s Hospital at Healthpark Hospital in Fort Myers.

For spectators, this event is free. There will be live music, karaoke, door prizes, raffles, 50/50, trophies and refreshments. Dempsey’s Diner will be offering great food specials, too.
