"It's a lot of fun," Zimmer said, "And it also helps support a couple of great, local causes."

The LOHS cheer team and the Orion Senior Center both benefit from 50/50 drawings each week, Zimmer noted.

The Tuesday night events take place from 5 p.m.-8 p.m.and feature oldies DJ "Phil," trivia questions and prizes every half hour, $1 custard cones or sundaes, and a 15 percent anytime discount for cruisers.
