The Daily Herald is partnering this summer with Randhurst Village shopping center and Clearbrook to present three cruise nights. While these family-friendly events are open to all cruisers and spectators, we've invited some special guests to bring out their rides.

We've featured these vehicles on the pages of the Daily Herald. Here's your chance to see them up close and meet the owners. At the first cruise night on June 18, Gail Wise of Park Ridge and her 1964 Ford Mustang -- the first Mustang ever sold -- will attend, as will Rescue 5, one of the fire trucks driven to the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, which later was restored by a Schaumburg charity that takes it around the country as a memorial to the firefighters who died that day.

Volo Auto Museum also will bring some of its four-wheeled Hollywood stars for your viewing pleasure.

During the event, a raffle will be conducted to benefit Clearbrook, which provides services, programs and support for people with disabilities and their families.

"Clearbrook is very excited to be the recipient of the raffle sales at the cruise nights," said Gloria Drake, Clearbrook vice president of communications and event planning. "We are always very appreciative of community partners like the Daily Herald and Randhurst Village who create exciting events that give back to the community."

The three cruise nights will be from 6-8 p.m. Wednesdays, June 18, July 16 and Aug. 20 at Randhurst Village, on the corner of Rand Road and Elmhurst Street in Mount Prospect. To register your vehicle, visit dailyherald.com/events.

"I'll be on hand at all three events," Avery said, "and, as always, I'll be on the hunt looking for vehicles that have a story worth telling."
