19th annual antique and classic car show
Burin Peninsula residents can again take a trip back in time by visiting the Marystown Arena this weekend for ‘Classics 2012’.
The Southern Classics Antique and Classic Car Club’s 19th annual car show June 16-17 will offer visitors a spectacular display of vintage vehicles from days gone by.
Due to the continued generosity and support of sponsors, participants and the public who attended this event since 1993, the show has generated much needed funds for many projects at the Burin Peninsula Health Care Center in excess of $83,000.
There were items for chemotherapy patient care, pediatric care, sofa beds, infant monitors, IV pumps, Infant monitor, youth bed, geriatric chair, Cell washer for Lab, Donations to CT scanner and Ultrasound fund, just to name a few.
Over the past two years proceeds went to the establishment of a Family Quiet Room – a unit where surgical and special procedure patient families can wait and/or speak with medical teams. The unit is beautifully furnished and equipped with a TV – the sole purpose of this unit is to provide patients and their families with a comfortable environment when and if needed.
The club will maintain this unit when required.
This year proceeds will be directed toward the ER Staff ‘ Wish List’ that includes items such as four Over bed tables, two Mayo Stand trays, two Invacare Wheelchairs with attached O2 tank holders, six IV poles and a Fluid Warmer,
The event has participants from throughout the province, which also generates support for local business in the food, hotel and retail sector and has great enter- tainment value.
Come out and support this cause and help the Southern Classic Car Club members with the ER Staff 2012 Wish List of Items. There will be ticket sales, door prizes and an Awards Ceremony Sunday afternoon.
Classics 2012 will be held at Marystown Arena Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Antique cars from around the island will be on display at the Marystown Arena, sponsored by the Southern Classics Antique and Classic Car Club, this Saturday and Sunday.
