Classic Cars on Third is an annual event hosted by the Women’s Center and the Marquette Downtown Development Authority.
The Women’s Center started the event after the death of Jessica Drummond, who tragically lost her life in 2015 in a case of domestic violence. All the proceeds from the event go to support the Women’s Center’s mission and shelter.
