This year the show was challenged with a less than excitable weather forecast, however somehow just as in years past, the rain eluded the event all day. In spite of the clouds, this year’s turnout was better than ever. This year’s show had many new features, such as a new stage and entertainment rotation, kids fitness and play area, as well as a large diversified waterfront display. Just as in years past, the show included a variety of vehicles such as: exotic European cars, imports, luxury vehicles, side by side and ATVS, as well as pedal bike rentals and numerous food vendors. In addition the show also included some of the old favorites such as dragsters, race cars, big trucks and power boats. Although financials are not yet finalized, we are very confident we reached our goal of raising $10,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research foundation, and are hopeful that we exceeded that by a significant amount. We at Boyd’s would like to give a sincere thank you to all of our sponsors, silent auction donators, vendor displays, and especially to all of our volunteers who gave up their weekend to help out a great cause.
Boyd Autobody & Glass has been putting on the annual Father’s Day Car Shows for 17 consecutive years with the goal of continually helping and bettering their community. Each year Boyd Autobody & Glass selects a charity to focus the fundraiser on, and this year they were excited to select the YMCA. They are so proud and grateful for all the volunteers and staff that give up their Father’s Day to help make a difference each year.
Boyd Autobody & Glass presented the YMCA of Okanagan with a cheque for $11,124 to benefit local children who are living in financial need within our community.
These funds, raised through Boyd Annual Father’s Day Car Show have been generously donated to the Y’s Strong Kids Campaign; an important local cause.
The 2016 show was an even bigger success than ever before! The weather started off a bit rainy, but by 11am we saw floods of people and custom and classic vehicles entering City Park – helping us raise $13,243.09 for the Angel Awards in support of the Arthritis Society! The event hosted great bands and amazing cars with some spectacular displays including the Porche Club showing of a range of cars from all different years! The 18th annual car show had many new features, such as a new stage and entertainment rotation including band Rumble 100, and Jada Mckenzie Moore who was the very first Angel Award winner!
