Car show will shine, this time for sure
THE rescheduled fourth annual Northern Rivers Auto Spectacular is on Sunday at the rugby grounds, Albert Park, Casino.
It is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever, with more than 30 trophies on offer and the show will have something for every member of the family.
Apart from hundreds of vehicles ranging from antique to new to see and wish for, there will be a swap meet, markets, laser skirmish, a jumping castle and a demonstration from the Casino branch of NSW Fire and Rescue.
With all makes and models of cars, trucks, bikes and machinery being entered, it will be a fantastic day out for both young and old.
Entry is only $5 each, with children under 12 free.
Gates will open at 6.30am for entrants and to the public at 8am.
All proceeds from the car show are donated each year to local charities. This year there are two charities which will benefit from the show.
The main charity of the day will be William, a 12-year-old boy with autism.
His family is trying to raise $15,000 to purchase a companion dog from Smart Pups for him. The dog will be trained to help guide William away from danger, alert someone if William is in a dangerous situation, to track, to detect if he is about to suffer a seizure and to stay with him and keep him calm if he does.
The dog will also offer William companionship and friendship.
Representatives from Smart Pups will be at the show to answer any questions people may have, or you can follow William's fundraising efforts on his Facebook page, William's Assistance Dog.
The raffle profits will be donated to Courteney Matthews, a Year 11 student trying to raise $4000 to fund a trip to India with 13 other students to work with the Presentation Sisters Ministries for two weeks.
While there, they will work and live within the community to help under-privileged children and also attend other fundraising events to raise much-needed funds for schools in the area.
Have a great family day out and help two local families reach their fundraising targets.
