The 7th Annual St. Andrew Cars for Community Car Show, hosted by the St. Andrew Methodist Men, is scheduled for Saturday, October 21, at St. Andrew Methodist Church, 5801 W. Plano Parkway, from 11 – 3 p.m. (Awards presented at 2 p.m.)
Open to the public with no admission fee, the event invites car and motorcycle enthusiasts to show off their vehicles while benefiting The Storehouse of Collin County, a nonprofit which provides short-term assistance and long-term transformation to residents of Collin, Dallas, and Denton Counties in need.
“The car show is not only great fun, but it supports The Storehouse, which is doing incredible work helping so many in need in our community,” said Ron Weaver, organizer. “All proceeds go toward supporting its mission to feed, clothe, and care as neighbors in one community. Last year we were delighted to present The Storehouse with a check for $7,400 to help provide nutritious meals, essential clothing items, life-changing resources, and educational opportunities.”
The event features raffle prizes and food vendors as well as goody bags for the first 100 entrants.
Over 20 classes will be judged including “Best of Show,” “Motorcycle Class,” and “Best Paint and Interior.” Onsite registration on the day of the event takes place from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. and is $25. Online pre-registration is $20. Go to https://give.thestorehousecc.org/carshow2023.
“We are so grateful to the men of St. Andrew for organizing this annual fundraiser benefiting our neighbors at The Storehouse,” said Candace Winslow, CEO, The Storehouse of Collin County. “In our food pantry alone, we are serving more than 5,000 families each month. Without question, the need is great, and each donation we receive enables us to serve our neighbors holistically, not only meeting their needs of food and clothing but also helping them advance on their paths toward transformation.”
