South Surrey car show raises $11,000

Annual event held at West Elgin Estates on Aug. 17

A South Surrey car show raised more than $11,000 for BC Children’s Hospital last month.

The 30th Avenue Car Show – held at West Elgin Estates on Aug. 17 – showcased an array of classic and unique cars while fundraising for the Lower Mainland hospital.

More than 300 people were served a buffet meal – whipped up and served by car show organizer Ruth Adair – who noted that the car show brought in $11,025.

The annual car show first kicked off in 2003, after Ruth and her husband, Barry, decided to host the semi-private event.

“From there, it grew to what it is today,” Adair said, noting that raising the funds would not be possible without the neighbourhood support.
