Classic Car Show helps Interfaith Food Bank
Local car lovers came out to the Logic Lumber Car Museum Saturday afternoon for the 12th annual Rob Dixon Memorial Classic Car Show.
People had the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of their most admired classic and muscle cars, along with motorcycles and hot rods, with all of the proceeds from the event going to benefit the Interfaith Food Bank of Lethbridge.
“The owners of Logic Lumber are big car fanatics so they wanted to have a car show to give back to the city of Lethbridge,” says Brad Calder, event organizer. “We thought that the Interfaith Food bank would be a good charity to go to as September is a big time for need and Christmas is close, so we thought that we would get involved with them and they help us out with everything from registration and everything else, so we thought that we would donate all of the money from it right to them.”
The annual event brings around 400 people every year to check out the over 50 cars and motorcycles on display and to help donate around $6,000 to the food bank.
“We definitely get a lot of people that need the food bank’s help,” says Connie Konbilck, Interfaith Food Bank volunteer. “It gets the awareness out there. They are nice enough to donate the proceeds from the raffle tickets and 50/50 draws to the Interfaith Food Bank, and it is a wonderful organization and I have come to see that since I have volunteered with them.”
The classic car show wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Logic Lumber sponsors including Astro Insurance, Structural Truss, Formasteel, Timbertech Truss, Harris Rebar, Goodfellow and Warwick Printing.
Giving back to the community, while spreading the love and knowledge of classic vehicles, the Logic Lumber Classic Car Show opened its Car Museum for people to observe and help people in need within the community of Lethbridge.
