Hopefully you will consider attending our 8th annual Food and Shelter charity car show at ANDREW'S PARK in downtown Norman. We have posted a map so you can find us. Acres of grass in the park to properly display your classic vehicle. A streamlined registration system that we hope will get you parked and busy putting the final touches on your 2 or 4 wheel beauty.
This show is FREE TO THE PUBLIC. We want you to bring the family out and enjoy the cars.
A hot dog stand provided by MIDWAY GROCERY AND DELI, one of Norman's favorite hide-away restaurants. For years, Owner Bob Thompson and his family have set up the grill and personally flipped the burgers or dogs, and have donated 100% of the money taken in, to Food and Shelter. Not just the profit, the entire till. Midway foots the cost of the food, and simply give 100% of what they take in during the day.
That is also what the cRc will do - the entire amount received during the day will go to our Norman Charity. FOOD AND SHELTER OF NORMAN and over the years, more than $30,000 has been donated to assist their mission - to rehabilitate one-person-at-a-time and to provide a healthy and loving environment while they do it. If you don't know about the amazing work that Director April Heiple and staff do for the homeless of the Central Oklahoma area - you should go by one day around lunchtime and just observe.
Did we say we have the best music, the finest trophies and the nicest cars around? We will. Our objective is to transform this show into a regional event for the Central Oklahoma area. This year we will be featured as the weekend destination in Norman's "TOURIST FOR A DAY" program. The Norman Fire and Police departments will be on hand with their amazing equipment, as will the Norman Emergency Management Unit. We will have a dozen or so vendors to occupy your time.
We want this to become a place that citizens who do not have a classic car can go to look, to enjoy, and appreciate. Please plan to come whether you have a car or not - just come and hang out and enjoy the music, buy a hot dog, or a 50/50 pot ticket (our part of the pot goes to Food and shelter also), and just hand out and be a part of the event. But if you have a car.....push it, pull it, or drive it!
We have the best music anywhere! Club member Harlan Butler has spent countless hours making a quality and fun track to run behind the scenes at the show. From Jimmy Buffett to The Ink Spots to Jan and Dean, Harlan has a little music for everyone and a fun adventure for all. Nobody beats Harlan's music, not even the pros.
We have the best trophies anywhere! Canadian River Cruisers members are only eligible for the Mayor's Pick, the Food and Shelter pick, and the Children's pick, not for the class trophies. Those are reserved exclusively for our guest cars.
cRc-FOOD AND SHELTER car show. 100% of the money raised at this show is donated to FOOD and SHELTER in Norman to further their mission of rehabilitation and help for the homeless in Central Oklahoma. To date our club has donated more than $31,000 to Food and Shelter.
