WARSAW — A car show for a local organization helping kids is tomorrow, Aug. 5, during First Friday.
Baker Youth Club of Warsaw will receive 100% of the proceeds raised from both the show and a silent auction, said BYC Executive Director Tracy Furnivall. The organization offers before and after school and summer programs for kids.
People may bring vehicles of all types to downtown Warsaw starting at 4 p.m. Furnivall said people should bring their vehicles in either near the corner of Market and Buffalo Streets, or near the corner of Center and Indiana Streets.
From there, they will pay the $15 entry fee and be directed where to park before officially registering at the courthouse square. Judging ends at 7 p.m., with awards being announced at 7:45 p.m.
Awards will be given out for the top 25 pre-1990 vehicles, those from 1991 to the present and the top 10 motorcycles. The first 125 entrants get a dash plaque.
The silent auction with 60 to 70 items runs from 4-7 p.m.
Furnivall said he hopes to have 150 vehicles entered in the show, with him noting that about 120-130 were in last year’s event. Last year the car show raised $13,000 for BYC.
Furnivall said funds raised will pay for meals, transportation, supplies and equipment.
First Friday itself, put on by Main Street Warsaw, runs from 5-8 p.m. There will be food vendors and music by DV8.
Furnivall said Friday’s event will be “a great fun family atmosphere” and noted that the car show is “a great complement to the efforts of (Main Street Warsaw’s work with First Friday).”
