If you like car shows and you love what the Arizona Humane Society does to ease the lives of dogs, cats and other domestic animals, then you’ll want to head over to the 2021 Charity Car Show!
More than 100 vintage, classic, and modified cars, trucks, and motorcycles are expected to be on display in the hopes that car enthusiasts and animal lovers will stuff dollar bills into money bins set in front of each vehicle. Expected at the event are a large number of Mini Coopers and a number of PT Cruisers. Several vintage Triumphs and Austin Healeys will also be there, as will an authentic London taxi. Ford, Chevrolet, and Chrysler lovers will be happy to see vintage, classic and modified cars and trucks on exhibit, too.
Attendees will also enjoy being entertained by Blue Electric Entertainment. They’ll spin platters from the 50’s through today’s music.
The event is free to the public (except for donations made to the Arizona Humane Society). Parking and admission are always free at the Mesa Market Place.
The Arizona Humane Society Waggin’ Wheels Mobile Adoption Vehicle will also be at the car show, full of puppies and dogs looking for a good home. Adoptions will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.
In addition to voting for your favorite cars by 'stuffing their canisters full of money,' animal lovers are also invited to donate pet food, bedding and toys for all the animals in the care of the Arizona Humane Society’s two campuses.
Professional quilter, Shirley Blahak, has embroidered a quilted comforter called ‘A Tribute to Our Loyal Pets’ to be auctioned off to raise additional money for the Arizona Humane Society the day of the event. The quilted comforter features dogs and puppies. Shirley Blahak has also made a comforter to be given to each dog adoptee at the event, too.
It’s all in good fun because 100% of the money the vehicles raise will be donated to the Arizona Humane Society. The top five vehicles bringing in the most donations will be the show's winners and will receive an engraved remembrance. If you have a vehicle you’d like to enter, big or little, no matter how many tires, you can get more information at www.mesamarket.com. There is a $5. entry fee ($10. after September 25.) Each entrant will go home with a 2021 Charity Car Show dash plaque.
The show, an annual event, is sponsored by Arizona Mini Owners, a cheerful group of newer and vintage Mini Cooper owners.
