Pancakes, burgers and cars all led to donations to Nanaimo Community Hospice Society totalling $6,600.
The Redliners Car Group held its sixth annual Charity Car Show at Country Club Centre on July 15, with 210 automobiles of various makes and models. Hundreds of people attended, and there was rock music and food provided by Original Joe’s Restaurant and Bar. Attendees also were able to vote on their favourite vehicle and reminisce about memories of their own vehicles.
The car show was conceived by local business owners Bob Falk, Paul Sihota, Chip Leyton, Wayne Martin and Hubert Brauchman and since 2012, has raised over $33,000 for the society, according to a press release.
“It is amazing the support we get from local business each year for this show,” said Falk. “The positive responses, donations and prizes for this event continue to grow. What a great community we live in.”
