Boyd Autobody and Glass hope the community embraces their charity raffle the same way they host the Father’s Day car show.
A highlight of spring at City Park for over 20 years, the auto show was canceled a year ago due to health restrictions around gatherings due to COVID-19.
With restrictions still in place at the start of this year, the focus was on a car cruise that would have been broadcast live to provide a safe viewing experience.
Unfortunately, the company announced on Monday that the two events would not go as planned.
Instead, Boyd invests his energy in a car raffle to raise money for the Child Advocacy Center in Kelowna.
The grand prize is a 2010 Chevy Camero 2LT, a “modern muscle car”.
Boyd Autobody & Glass donated this year’s award car, with additional customization provided by Elite Auto Center, Andre’s Electronics Experts, Budget Brake and Muffler, Sign Craft, CIC OK Tire, Lordco Auto Parts and PPG.
“While the auto show has always been a great family outing for Father’s Day, we understand that now
Now is not the time to do anything that encourages people to travel or get together, ”says Boyd Autobody and Glass GM Methal Abougoush.
“We will come back next year bigger and better than ever. But in the meantime, we’re happy that we can still support the CCC and help make a difference for the children who need its help.
Over the past two years, over $ 85,000 has been raised for the Child Advocacy Center.
Tickets cost $ 25 each or five for $ 100.
