The second-annual Classic Car and Bike Show, presented by Sugar Creek, will be held this Sunday to raise money for juvenile diabetes and the Washington Court House Cougars.
Coach Boyd Kearns invited the community to come support the WCH Cougars softball program and help raise money for juvenile diabetes at the car and bike show located on Kenskill Avenue in Washington Court House from noon t0 6 p.m.
“This year we are hoping to give more money,” Kearns said. “It already seems like we are going to have more cars. We are trying to be more proactive in getting people out there so we are handing out more door prizes this year. We are also doing a 50/50 raffle, serving simple concessions, nothing too crazy; and adding motorcycles to the show this year. I want to give a shout out to a few people, like Kristi Lynch-Snively and Bill Blake, who helped to really get the word out.”
Kearns said the show last year had 20 cars, but he is hoping to get to 35 or more, which would be a good representation of growth to him.
“This is totally a community event,” Kearns said. “They usually don’t open this showroom up for people to look at. No one can just walk up to the doors and ask to see in, so I thank Sugar Creek again. They are sticking their necks out for us to do this, and as of right now they can’t particularly donate monetarily, but they donate their building and time. They even had some employees watching the showroom floor, and serving refreshments last year to help raise more money.”
The entry fee for a car is $15 and $10 for motorcycles, with registration starting at 11 a.m. Awards will be given to the top cars and bikes during the event, as well as awards for people’s choice and more. Kearns said the first 15 people to register a car or a bike will get a goody bag as a “thank you” for attending. The admission to the car show is $5 per person, a reduced price from last year, as Kearns said he is hoping the lower cost will bring more people out.
“Some money will go to support the WCH Cougars Softball, but I just want people to come out and help raise money for juvenile diabetes,” Kearns said. “We really appreciate the support from the community and hope to see you Sunday.”
