Monday, September 12, 2016
The 10th annual Labour Day Show N Shine broke a record by raising over $26,145 for the Regina and District Food Bank. After having to push back the event one week due to inclement weather, organizers couldn’t be happier with the day’s success.
“We’re truly grateful to the community, collector hobbyists and our sponsors for supporting this community event the past 10 years.” says Jim Deane, President and CEO, Access Communications Co-operative. “Together we’re helping the Food Bank fight hunger.”
The annual event has become a marquee attraction for people in the Regina area, as well as a major contributor to the Food Bank’s fall food drive. According to Steve Compton, CEO of the Regina Food Bank, those two things combined to make this year’s event a success.
“We are so grateful to the Access Communications, the Collectors Car Club and everyone who came out to the Show N Shine,” said Compton. “Over 9,000 people visit the Food Bank each month – half of whom are children – and the success of this year’s event will help a lot of families in the Regina area.”
The event is organized in partnership between Access Communications Co-operative and the Collectors Car Club of Saskatchewan, together with 80 volunteers. This year’s event was presented by CAA Saskatchewan. “On behalf of our valued 185,000 Members, and our staff, we are very proud to be part of such an incredible community event that helps families in need,” remarked Fred Titanich, President and CEO, CAA Saskatchewan. Supporting sponsors include: Bennett Dunlop Ford, Sherwood Co-op, Nimbus Water, Loras Disposal, Custom Creations, Armaguard Regina, Western Litho Printers, Abadoo Marketing, JackFM, Z99 and CJME.
As the largest car show in Southern Saskatchewan, the Labour Day Show N Shine has become a staple of the car show circuit. Featuring everything from vintage cruisers to motorcycles, muscle cars, rat rods and exotic cars - the event is an unforgettable afternoon for all involved.
