We got all the numbers back from the Father’s Day Car Show and are proud to say we made our donation to the Kelowna Firefighters Professional Charitable Society (and their Burn Fund) for a whopping$16,308.45!!
We raised $3000 more than last year and we couldn’t have done it without the financial support, physical help, and silent auction donations of each and every person involved.
This year was the most challenging due to the flood which forced us to move locations, but that didn’t stop us and as a result we had the best show yet! The event hosted amazing cars with some spectacular displays including the motor cycles from Harley Davidson, and Konquer! This year’s car show had many new features, such as our very first celebrity guest Mark Worman from Velocity TV’s Graveyard Carz! Just as in years past, the show included a variety of vehicles such as: exotic European cars, imports, luxury vehicles, as well as, a variety of fire trucks and boats. We are excited to start planning next year’s show back at City Park.
Thank you for your attendance and support. You should be proud of how much you helped your community!
