The 20th annual Show & Shine on June 17th will benefit a number of non-profit organizations.
In addition to allocating some of the proceeds to the Weyburn Care-A-Van Society, a refundable collection being held for the Friends of Isaiah fundraiser, and allowing some non-profits to set up booths at no charge, they've recently decided to include the Weyburn Salvation Army Food Bank.
"Normally the car show is free for all the participants to come to, and this is something new that we came up with this year because we know that everybody is struggling with the increase of everything basically, but the Salvation Army Food Bank, they're always low on foods," said Contessa Hill, the administrator for the Soo Line Cruisers Car Club.
"As a club, we made the decision that we're asking anybody, whether you're bringing your car in, or anybody just coming to and take in the fun day that we have planned on Saturday, June the 17th, so please bring down any, one, 10, I don't care how many, bring just a non-perishable food item."
She said one of their members will be bringing a one-ton truck and they're hoping to fill it with non-perishable food items during the car show.
"This is new, the first year we're going to try it, just because we know that there are hundreds of people who pass through the streets that day for the car show, so come on down, enjoy the show. The more people, the better. We just thought we'd just add a little bit something extra for the Salvation Army, and just try and see how it goes this year," she said, noting the collection truck will be beside the stage at Souris Avenue and Third Street.
Hill added they'll also have non-profit booths from the Weyburn Humane Society, the Weyburn Youth Centre, and the Weyburn Fire Brigade.
The proceeds from car registrations will be going to the Weyburn Care-A-Van Society as they are fundraising to purchase a new van.
