This event started in 2014 with a request from a mother, Alina Pope, in St Albert. Her son asked for a ride in a Camaro for his birthday. When the request went out she did not know the response she would get. Several members from the club said they would love to help them out. A suggestion was made to put on a make shift car show at the Pope household.
Nathanial made a request of us, could we put on a show and shine for the Make a Wish foundation. We took on the challenge and in mid October 2014 the Wheels for Wishes show was born. In the first year we raised just under $2800 in three hours with only a weeks notice. In 2015 we decided to try to raise a child's wish, $10,000. We did just that raising just over the $10,000 mark. In 2016 we went bigger and better, and the goal was again to raise a child's wish, and we raised over the $10,000 for the second straight year. 2017 Was the best year to date, $13,572 raised, and 1 more wish granted, the support we receive from everyone is amazing and your donations go to a amazing cause.
In 2018 we are trying for the fourth year to reach the $10,000 mark. We again will have room for 200 cars at the site, all makes and models are welcome. This year we will have a food truck on site, The Cranky Ape. We will also have a silent auction, and 50/50 draws.
To make a donation to the silent auction please see the contact page.
Thanks for the support that’s made it all possible!
