It is almost Friday, so happy TGIF to you. In fact, what better way to wrap up the week than the prospect of a car show where all the proceeds go to benefit charity! That is the pursuit of the 2011 Benefit Car Show in Lowry. If you missed the inaugural event last year, then you won't want to miss the 2nd annual one this year. And as they say it is about location, location, location; the show couldn't be better situated as it is within walking distance of the Lowry Tavern, Salty Rita's, Serioz, Qudoba, Pei Wei and the Delectable Egg. Need more sight seeing opportunities. The Wings Over the Rockies museum is just a couple blocks aways!
This year will be a little different than last year with a new parking arrangement that is sure to capture your attention. No they aren't parking on the grass...but they are parking in special formations to make the display of cars even more interesting! What you say, you didn't register for the event? That is okay, we have you covered since no pre-registration was required. There will be extra forms at the registration table. So bring yourself, a couple of friends—most importantly a couple of cars—a chair and an umbrella.
Here is the skinny on how the money is being raised for Project Angel Heart. For participants the fee is $15 to enter a car. Have two cars to show—$30. Then spectators, who will also be voting on the car awards, will be charge $5. Of course, additonal donations for Project Angel Heart are welcome.
If you want to show your car, parking starts at 8 a.m. For spectating, the show starts at 10 a.m. Everyone will be heading home at 3:30 p.m., which should be about right considering the summer shows seem to move in after that. The address you say? The parking lot is Caddy corner to the Albertsons on the southeast corner. The cross-streets are East 1st Place and Rampart Way.
One final note, if you aren't familiar with Project Angel Heart, please visit their website. They provide meals to those in need with life threatening illnesses. The donation is in the name of one of the sponsoring car clubs, the Sunday Afternoon Car Klub (SACK), board members that recently passed away. Glen Davis was the club Roadmaster (event planner) and was known for spending a lot of his free time in the kitchen or behind a desk volunteering at Project Angel Heart.
Help us celebrate his impact on Project Angel Heart by raising money for them. It is a great organization and they can always use a helping hand.
This is definitely a show you won't want to miss!
