Communities in Schools of Brunswick County Inc. (CIS) is offering a 1946 Chrysler Windsor for auction as part of the seventh annual Benefit Gala for Children on Thursday, Oct. 16, at Sea Trail Golf Resort & Convention Center.

CIS board member Shirley Babson arranged for the car to help in this year’s fundraising efforts.

“I think auctioning the car is a wonderful way to raise money for CIS,” said Babson, who has spent more than 30 years working for children.

The car, a two-door, six-cylinder vehicle with fluid drive transmission, was used in the making of the films “October Sky” and “Liberty Heights.” It can be previewed at Nabor Chrysler Jeep Dodge off U.S. 17 at 5660 Main St. in Shallotte.
