Two car enthusiasts from Michigan, Sam Perry and George Zalucki (now an Estero resident), decided Southwest Florida was missing something: an all-day car cruise. They organized the first Gulf Coast Dream Cruise, held on April 13 at Miromar Outlets. Hundreds of cool car owners brought their rides out to cruise along Ben Hill Griffin Parkway. Charitable donations were collected for the Harry Chapin Food Bank as part of “Cruisin’ for a Cause.”
