Wheels of Hope Car Show seeks participants, sponsors
The area’s most unique car show for a cause is looking for participants and potential sponsors. Don’t miss the second Wheels of Hope event from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 23 in downtown Garland. All proceeds benefit the Hope Clinic—a nonprofit offering medical services to those suffering financial hardships.
“Last year, we raised more than $30,000. We would love to give even more this year,” said Wheels of Hope Chairman James Miller. “The size, class and location of our show make it unique. But it is not just a competition. It is truly an event for the entire community.”
Boasting 16 competition categories from antique to modern cars and trucks, Wheels of Hope also offers food, fun, fellowship and a pristine parking location: the famous Downtown Garland Square. Competitors and car enthusiasts alike can enjoy mariachi and steel drum band entertainment during the show, as well as a headline performance by Chaz Marie-Hope and Robert Miller.
Garland ISD students will also impress attendees with auto-themed artwork, including painted hoods and gas tanks. Bringing children? Be sure to stop by the face painting and hub cap painting areas.
In addition to Best in Class, Best in Show, Best Paint and Chairman’s awards, raffle prizes—like beautiful blooms from Ruibal’s—and a 50/50 drawing can be won as well. Admission is free to attend and $20 to enter a vehicle. For more information and to register, visit the Wheels of Hope website.
Hope Clinic provides health care to low income residents who do not have private health insurance and are not eligible for Medicare, Medicaid, Parkland Plus or similar programs. While county government, private physicians and community organizations have provided substantial support to the underserved, current efforts are insufficient to cope with expanding needs.
Physicians, nurses, and volunteer health care professionals of Hope Clinic give unselfishly of their time to provide a high level of quality services to the working poor population and children in the community.
