How can I sum up the Guelph Show? It’s difficult, I would say the build-up to the show was very exciting, and since our expectations from last year were raised higher, members took upon themselves to call more owners. What was great about the show was that it attracted more than just car owners. We have always been about sharing our passion with cars owners and the general public.
Just like last year, we came to support and raise money for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. This year we ended up raising $23,500, which broke our $20,000 goal from last year, and we couldn’t be happier that we had a bigger attendance and great weather to enjoy the day with people and cars.
Speaking of cars, we definitely upped the ante from last year and tried to bring more cars the general public does not see on a daily basis. For example, I got to see my very first Porsche 918 on the road, and for someone who gets to see supercars on a daily basis, it would be an understatement to say my jaw dropped.
Honestly, one of the reasons we love doing this is bringing the car community closer to people that might not get the chance to see these cars all the time, and if we get one kid passionate about cars, we feel like we have done our job.
Just like last year, we finished the event with kids getting a ride in some of their favourite cars. And at exactly 4 pm, all owners started revving their engines, ready to give the kids an amazing cruise around the city. You can see some of the other pictures from the event in the slideshow below.
