Local fundraising steps up a gear

July 31, 2013 by  

Taking place next month, the Warminster Police Benevolent Association’s Summer Auto Show will raise funds to help support many local charities, while providing local motor enthusiasts with something to get their engines going.

Last year’s show featured approximately 350 vehicles of all kinds, and organizers are hoping for 400 this year. Participants in the auto show will compete for 120 awards, which range from recognizing the show’s best cars and motorbikes, to an award for the vehicle most likely to be given a police ticket. Prizes will include trophies and plaques.

Those who wish to showcase their vehicles can register them for $12 in advance, or $15 on the day of the show. The first 250 entrants will receive dash plaques for their cars.

In addition to the cars, there will be plenty of food for purchase, musical entertainment, the Yesteryear Pageant, and a range of vendors selling transportation-related items such as car accessories and motorcycle clothing.

Vendors will likely be ordering services such as sign and banner printing from Warminster print companies to prepare for this event. These things might draw more attention to their booths and result in more sales on the day.

The Summer Auto Show will take place at the Old Johnsville Air Station Runway in Warminster Community Park on August 17 beginning at 11:00 am. For gearheads who cannot make that particular date, another show is planned in the same location for September 28. For more information, visit the event website.
