The highly anticipated 2nd Annual Canamera Classic Car Show is returning to Central Saanich this weekend!
On Sunday, August 25th, head down to Keating Cross Road for a massive vintage and classic car show, all in support of the BC Children’s Hospital.
Following last year’s successful fundraising event, over 200 unique vehicles will be in attendance for this year’s show, with even more unregistered cars expected to stop by.
“We put on the first car show last year for a friend of Doug — who’s my partner — who had cancer, named John Buck,” said show organizer Ann Watley.
“It’s really important to Doug and the show that people understand that the show is put on because of John. We raised $11,000 last year for the BC Cancer Foundation. This year, we’re hopefully raising an excess of that for the BC Children’s Hospital.”
Besides exploring the rows of specialty vehicles, the car show will feature a silent auction, live music performed by local band Twelve O’Clock Rock, and food, drinks, cotton candy, ice cream, and more.
The car show stresses that all food purchases and car registration fees are entirely by donation, with all proceeds going towards the children’s hospital.
“We didn’t want to allow individual vendors because we wanted every dollar that we raise to go to the BC Children Hospital,” said Watley.
People who want to show off their vintage cars while also raising money for sick children still have time to register for the event!
Registration is quick and easy and can be completed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again, registration fees are entirely by donation, so it’s up to you how much you donate to participate in the event!
“It’s an everyone welcome family-friendly event,” said Watley.
“You don’t have to be a car person, we just want to support BC Children’s.”
