Car show to put brakes on can­cer

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE - Jor­gia White jor­gia.white@sc­

CAR en­thu­si­asts some­times get a bad wrap for their hot­ted-up wheels mak­ing too much noise.

But the Just 8 Car Club is back for their sev­enth an­nual event to show the Caloun­dra com­mu­nity their hobby can also be the vehicle for pos­i­tive change.

This year their Show and Shine event will be rais­ing money for the Prostate Can­cer Foun­da­tion and the Na­tional Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.

Or­gan­iser War­wick Fraser said the event had grown im­mea­sur­ably since their first meet in 2010.

“In the first year there were 50 cars and now we have a max­i­mum of 200,” he said.

As the event grows, so do the fundrais­ing ef­forts.

“Last year we raised al­most $8000, which we di­vided between the char­i­ties,” Mr Fraser said.

He said the event is also about em­pow­er­ing the mo­tor­ing com­mu­nity.

“The gen­eral pub­lic be­lieve that ev­ery car en­thu­si­ast is a hoon so we try to bring peo­ple to­gether to show this is not what we’re about,” he said.

The event will be held at Cur­rimundi Ho­tel on Sun­day, October 15. Visit
