R&H Car Show raises $2,100 for Children’s Guild

The 1st Annual R&H Car Show that took place on July 16th, 2011 to benefit The Children's Guild was a great success.  The staff and coordinators raised $2,100 for the worthy organization.

Over 100 vehicles of all types came out to R&H Toyota's brand new service center in support of the Children's Guild.  Including motorcycles, hot-rods, muscle cars, and imports.  There were 87 participants in the judging portion.  I am sure was quite difficult to judge since they were some amazing vehicles there.  Such as Trevor Boone's '01 Honda Accord with a polk audio system, lambo doors, and playstation.  A beautiful purple Kawasaki ZX1400 owned by Markus with every imaginable upgrade possible.  Some of my personal favorites at the show were a beautiful red Jaguar E-Type, Ford GT, and even a Ferrari.  A certain writer would love to own these!

There were also some great activities at the show.  Both Mobil1 and Shell had racing simulators setup for attendees to try out.  Trying out the simulators was quite fun and more difficult than I thought… just like real racing!  When I exited the Mobil1 simulator the guy exclaimed “Harder then it looks, huh?”  Sure was.  Shell and Mobil1 also had their race cars on display at the show along with the simulators.  It was great to see the vehicles up close.

“This was entirely a employee concept and they worked very hard to put this together.” said David Russell, General Manager for R&H Toyota.  “Everyone knew different people to bring to the show.  Vendors really stepped up to support this as well.”

The Children's guild is definitely an organization that needs people to step up to support it.  It serves the needs of children with trauma disorders, autism, or disabilities in the Maryland and Washington DC area.  Currently they are working on opening up several new schools in the area.  Any added support is much appreciated.

Next year should be even better with more cars, meaning a higher fund raising goal.  Mark your calendars!

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.
