R&H 1st Annual car show to benefit the Children’s Guild – Saturday July 16th

Ford GT

R&H Toyota will be holding their 1st Annual Car Show tomorrow, July 16th.  There will be great activities and events taking place, all for raising money for the Children's Guild.  A wonderful organization that serves the needs of children with trauma disorders, autism, or disabilities in the Maryland and DC area.  What was the impetus for starting the car show?  “We moved our service location from Reisterstown Road, and people didn't know where we were.  We decided to put on a car show and donate the proceeds to a worthy Charity.   The Children's Guild was an excellent choice.” says Jan Braverman coordinator for the event.

The show will include over 100 different vehicles of all kinds.  There will be Ferraris, Porsches, motorcycles, hot-rods, and imports at the show.  Mobil1 will have a racing simulator setup for attendees to try out and they will bring their NASCAR race car to display.  Shell will also have a racing simulator and their race car as well.  (A certain blogger is definitely going to try out both racing simulators.)  An automotive rotisserie, which aids in car restoration, will on be display as well.  R&H Toyota and R&H Mercedez-Benz will be setup with booths, raising money, and selling items for the Children's Guild.  All participants in the car show will receive a goodie bag and dash plaque.  New cars will also be on display from R&H if you are in the market for a new vehicle.

The show is Free for attendees, and it will be a great event.  Remember it's not just about cars, it supports the Children's Guild.

Hereford Zone Car Show – Saturday June 18th

This Saturday there is going to be an awesome car show, the 7th Annual Hereford Zone Car Show.  The show is open to all makes, models, and years.  If you have a vehicle with wheels, you can bring it!  In past the show has had Model A's, Model T's, Hot-rods, classic cars, Ferrias, Lamborghinis, motorcycles, and even Fire Trucks.  This year should be bigger and better than ever before.  There are 200-300 vehicles expected this year, which is a lot larger than past shows.

The show also has an important cause to support, the Leib McDonald Techincal School Scholarship Fund.  The scholarship is for a graduating Senior from Hereford High School who will be attending a technical school for automotive technology, diesel mechanics, motorcycles, or HVAC..  Travis Brown is this year's recipient.  He was awarded the scholarship 3 weeks ago, and will be attending York Technical Institute for Motorcycle Mechanics.  Recipients are judged on several criteria including GPA, attendance records, letters of recommendations, and good fit for the scholarship.  It's a bit of a challenge to receive the scholarship and Travis should feel proud he got it.

Including the car show, right across the plaza there will be 100.7 The Bay's BBQ Bash.  There will also be activities for the whole family.  Crafts, games, live music, face painting, and contests with prizes.  Cars will be judged with 25 trophies to the top vehicles on display, and 34 different awards.  The first 100 cars will receive a great dash plaque.  It will be a fun day for all!

College Park tuning car Meet canceled!

I'm sorry to inform everyone that the University of Maryland's College Park tuning Meet that was supposed to be happening today, Sunday May 1st at Fedex Field, has been canceled. Due to insufficient insurance coverage, the organizers will not be allowed to hold the event at Fedex Field. This is very unfortunate, since the meet was supposed to benefit Martha's Table. It's a great organization that provides food, clothing, and learning resources for those of us who are less fortunate. I hope everyone will make a donation regardless. Hopefully the organizers will not have this problem next year, and will be able to raise the proper funds for insurance coverage.
