WAVERLY – School is out, but the Waverly High School parking lot is sure to be full of vehicles this Sunday.
The 10th Annual Dare to Share Car Show is set for Sunday and about 200 vehicles are expected to compete in 38 different classes.
Registration for cars, motorcycles, and tractors takes place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., with the show taking place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Advance registration is $15 and day of show registration is $20.
A 50-50 raffle, concessions and auction items will add to the day’s activities.
Just like all nine previous years. All proceeds will benefit the School District 145 Backpack Program.
Event Organizer Lisa French said there won’t be any changes of note to the 10th annual show. She said why change something that has found success in past years.
The show has certainly found success and grown from its first year, when it was a spinoff from French’s birthday present idea.
She said 11 years ago she and her husband, Tom, threw a big party at her house in honor of her birthday. But, she didn’t want any gifts from those attending.
French read a story in The News about the school’s backpack program and wanted the party to be a fundraiser for that program. The party raised $600.
If her party could raise that much, she said she wanted to take the idea a step further and organize a community event to raise even more funds.
Eighty vehicles showed up that first year of the car show. The following year is was about 120.
“Every year since, it’s been 150 to 200,” she said.
French said she has been very pleased and appreciative for the support the community has shown for the show.
As in past years, there will be awards for first, second and third place in each class. Best of show winners will again receive Husker memorabilia.
