Nanaimo hospice gets cash from car show

Seventh annual charity car show raises $6,600 for Nanaimo Community Hospice

Raffles, rock and roll, and classic cars rolled in just over $6,600 for Nanaimo Community Hospice last month.

Country Club Centre and Original Joe’s hosted their seventh annual charity car show, presented by the Redliners Car Group, which drew hundreds of spectators to view 200 classic and custom vehicles and take in music and Original Joe’s pancakes and burgers.

The event – brainchild of local business owners Bob Falk, Paul Sihota, Chip Leyton, Wayne Martin and Hubert Brauchman – has raised more than $39,000 Nanaimo Community Hospice Society since 2012.

For more information on how to register for next year’s event, contact Falk at 250-758-1731.
