The Network Food Pantry of Richardson to benefit from 11th Annual Heights Car Show

The 11th Annual Heights Car Show will be held 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday April 7 at The Heights in Richardson. Proceeds benefit The Network Food Pantry of Richardson. Last year, the event raised more than $9,000 and collected more than 1,300 pounds of food for the organization thanks to the entry of more than 470 cars.

“We started the show as a community outreach,” said show organizer Brian Ratcliff in a press release. “Each year it’s grown and attracted a wider range of vehicles… everything from Ferraris, Jaguars and Porsches to classic American muscle cars and hot rods to military vehicles. It’s the largest single day car show in Dallas-Fort Worth. And the quality of the cars is remarkable. Over the show’s 10 year history, it has raised more than $56,700 and donated about 7,700 pounds of food to the Network Food Pantry.”

Show car registration is $20 per car entry or 20 canned food items. There will be live music by Ken Savage and the Best Kept Secret Band with food vendors to create a family friendly, festival atmosphere. The event is free for spectators.

Registration opens February 1 online at http://heightscarshow.com or on-site 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturday, April 7.
