About Gears & Grub Car Show Event, March 4, 2023

Gears & Grub is an annual event benefitting the non-profit Effingham Health System Foundation. EHS Foundation’s Mission is to support Effingham Health System’s continued growth by increasing awareness through philanthropy and by providing the financial resources that support the delivery of quality healthcare in our community. Gears & Grub is intended to help raise awareness of the EHS Foundation and how it supports the growth of healthcare services close to home through our community-owned healthcare system: Effingham Health System. Funds raised through the event will go toward that purpose.

2022 was our biggest car show event ever, attracting over 2,000 people. 2023 will be even bigger and better with more cars in our auto show, more trucks, and more motorcycles. We’re bringing back some of our most popular entertainment and adding new shows to the mix. We’ll have more vendors and, of course, we’re reaching out to continue growing our fan base. This is a day of family-friendly excitement that crosses over the generations. Including special automotive painting, monster truck rides, and an inflatable obstacle course for the kids. The perfect event to welcome Spring to Effingham County. We’ll draw people from Rincon, Guyton, Springfield, and all of Effingham, GA; from Savannah, Pooler, Bloomingdale, Bryan County, Richmond Hill, Hinesville, Statesboro, Metter, Brooklet, and Brunswick, Georgia; and from Beaufort, Bluffton, Hardeeville, Hilton Head, and Jasper County, South Carolina.
