CASINO'S Albert Park Rugby grounds will be transformed into motor enthusiast heaven next Sunday for the Northern Rivers Auto Spectacular- and there will be more than just cars.

Organiser, Northern Rivers Ford Owners Club member, Jason Stewart, said this year the fourth annual Northern Rivers Auto Spectacular will donate all proceeds from the show to two local charities.

"Car lovers of all ages will be able to browse hundreds of desirable machines, from antiques and classics to the latest and greatest fuel injected models," he said.

"A well as the cars, enthusiasts can hunt for that scarce part they need at the swap meet, peruse the market stalls and raffles, play laser skirmish and enjoy a demonstration by NSW Fire and Rescue."

Mr Stewart said proceeds from the raffles will be donated to Year 11 student Courteney Matthews, who is trying to raise $4000 to fund a trip to India with 13 other students, to work with the Presentation Sisters Ministries for three weeks.

"The beneficiary of the entry fees will be 12-year-old autistic boy William Nichols whose family are trying to raise $15,000 to purchase a Smart Pup."

"The dog will be trained to help guide William away from danger, alert someone if William is in a dangerous situationand to detect if William is about to suffer a seizure." Entry fee for car owners is $5, which can be paid on the day.
