Eyeballerz Car Show Celebrates the Legacy of Johnathan Gray
Whether you want to show off your classic car, or you just want to just check out the best vintage vehicles around, there's something for everyone at the Eyeballerz Car Show Fundraiser.
At the Christmas Wish headquarters back in 2017, I had the chance to meet the Gray family. A beautiful family on a mission. The mission to raise money and donate to local charities in their sons' name. There wasn't a dry eye in the house when the story was shared about Johnathan Gray. I felt a kinship not only on that day but in all of the years since. So many children have received Christmas because of their generosity throughout the years. For this and for so much more, we are forever grateful!
Johnathan Gray had a passion for cars and people. He loved this community and his wonderful family and friends. His life was tragically cut short years ago on July 19th by a drunk driver. It was a blow to all who knew him. He accomplished so much in his short life and continues to inspire.
On July 19th, 2018 the family made this heartfelt social media post.
"For those new to Eyeballerz today is the day that reminds us to hold our loved ones close. Today is the day that reminds us that life is too short. Today is the day that reminds us why we do what we do here at Eyeballerz. July 19th is the day we lost a father, a son, a brother, and the best friend anyone could have. Johnathan loved anything fast and enjoyed helping others so much that we decided the best way to memorialize him and carry on his legacy is to bring people together to help others in need through a car show. This will be our 4th show with him watching over. We hope that we are making you proud! Love and miss you!"

Eyeballerz was created to keep his legacy alive and help those in need.
"Eyeballerz hopes to make a positive impact on our community by using scholarships & benefit fundraising to help those in need, promote the education in skilled trades such as mechanics and welding and raise awareness about drinking and driving."
"We invite everyone to our annual event to help us continue the inspiration sparked by Johnathan’s dream. By joining our team we can pull our efforts and resources together to use this one man’s vision to help others see through difficult times".
Through their car shows and fundraising efforts, they donate all year long and impact the communities that Johnathon loved.
