The GUMC -Youth Branden Penegar Memorial Annual Car Show

  • Gonzalez United Methodist Church 2026 Pauline Street Cantonment, FL, 32533 United States (map)

On March 17, 2018, Gonzalez United Methodist is proud to present our 5th annual GUMC Youth/Branden Penegar Memorial Car Show, a tribute to a wonderful young man who left us much too soon. Branden Penegar was a very active member of the GUMC Youth group who was called home to heaven on March 9, 2013, a couple months shy of his 21st birthday. He became a friend to everyone he met and his constant smile was contagious. Branden could make any day seem better just by being in the same room with him. He loved God, his family, friends, Tate High School football, Florida State Seminoles, NASCAR and the GUMC Youth group. Although Branden had “graduated out” of youth in 2011, he stayed active in the group by serving as a mentor, friend, and chaperone at youth activities. The Youth want to show their continued love for Branden by including his name on this car show which has now grown to be one of the larger car shows in the Pensacola area. He will forever live in our hearts.

We welcome any make, model, or year car. We will have live music and food and refreshments will be available for purchase.  All proceeds from our annual car show benefit the GUMC Youth Group.


Car registration will take place from 8am to 11am.   Presentation of awards begins at 1pm. In case of rain, the backup date is Saturday, March 31st.   Check our Facebook page for up to the minute updates.
