Access Communications Labour Day Show N Shine raises $28,656 in support of Regina Food Bank
Tuesday, September 4, 2018
Regina, SK – Over 6,000 spectators soaked up the sun and the festival atmosphere on Monday as 500 classic vehicles took centre stage at the 12th annual Access Communications Labour Day Show N Shine. The event, held at Access Communications Community Park, raised more than 560 pounds of food and $28,656 for the Regina Food Bank.
“As a community-owned co-operative, we're proud to support local families by fighting hunger,” said Jim Deane, President and CEO, Access Communications Co-operative. “We couldn’t have asked for a better day – the whole neighbourhood was full of exhibitors and spectators.”
Food Bank Director of Operations Todd Sandin indicated it was another great success. “Donations seem to take a drop during the summer. Kids are out of school and people are on vacation, so we might not be top of mind. To have an event like this, at this crucial time, is very important to the Food Bank,” Sandin said. “The money and food raised at this year’s Show N Shine will go a long way in helping us meet the needs within the community and we’re extremely grateful to Access and all the community partners who made this happen.
The event is organized in partnership between Access Communications Co-operative and the Collectors Car Club of Saskatchewan. For the past three years the event has been presented by CAA Saskatchewan. “We are so very pleased to be a major part of this successful family event that not only showcases southern Saskatchewan’s best in vintage and classic vehicles, but also helps families in need through the Regina Food Bank,” said Fred Titanich, President & CEO, CAA Saskatchewan. “We hope all participants enjoyed the CAA Family Fun Centre and we look forward to hosting this family friendly fun zone at next year’s Show N Shine.”
Supporting sponsors included Allied Printers and Promotions, Bennett Dunlop Ford, Custom Creations, Loraas Disposal, Western Litho Printers, CJME, Z99 and JackFM. This year’s event truly showcased how the Labour Day Show N Shine is the biggest outdoor car show in Southern Saskatchewan and has become a family tradition all in support of a really good cause.
