Radio station 94.7 will raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network by bringing back the Stone Soup Project to Detroit.
The project, named after the childhood fable which tells the story of a community coming together to each add something to a soup pot, relies on the efforts of local business and listeners to help rebuild a classic car from the ground up.
The finished car will be unveiled Feb. 24 at Autorama, with proceeds going to charity.
Tom DeLage, of Dearborn, donated his 1967 Ford Mustang in 2003 and Walt Wheeler, of Oxford, donated his 1970 Plymouth Road Runner in 2004.
Local businesses can help by donating time in the build-up effort.
So far, Roush Automotive has donated a Roush 5.0RSC motor, which according to organizers, is a $15,000 value.
The Children's Miracle Network raises money for more than 170 children’s hospitals. The donations stay in the community in which they are received to help local children.
According to 94.7, the search is on for a car to use this year.
