O’Connor welcomes the classics for annual car show

Family-friendly community event supports local charity

While Chilliwack residents are used to seeing O’Connor Chrysler showcase an array of sought-after vehicles, the models will be a little more unique when the O’Connor Car Show rolls onto the lot.

The second annual show promises to rev up local car buffs Sunday, July 21, welcoming enthusiasts of all ages from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

“While we had more Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles registered for last year’s inaugural show, we welcome all makes and models,” says the dealership’s Trenna Pennington.

More than 100 vehicles delighted show visitors last year and organizers are excited to welcome even more this year, including a few specialized custom cars, she notes. “We want to make it bigger and better every year and we’re going to clear out the lot to make room for the show cars.”

While showing off their wheels, vehicle owners will vie for prizes and bragging rights, including the coveted People’s Choice Award.

All ages welcome for family-friendly event

More than a simple show-and-shine of beautiful vehicles, the O’Connor Car Show is designed as a real family event, with free admission, kids’ activities, bouncy castle, music, an on-site food truck and more.

“And we just might have a few surprises up our sleeve, too,” Pennington predicts.

A silent auction and 50/50 draws will add to the excitement, with fundraising in support of Chilliwack’s Little Heroes Hockey Academy, which helps children with developmental delays participate in ice hockey.

“As a family business, it’s important to us to give back to the local community that has supported us so well over the years, and especially to organizations serving families right here in Chilliwack,” Pennington notes.

The longstanding local dealership will also present a cheque to the BC Cancer Foundation during the car show, the culmination of a month-long June initiative with $100 donated to the BC Cancer Foundation for every car sold in June.

Register your wheels online today ($5 of the $10 fee will go directly to Little Heroes), or head to O’Connor Chrysler bright and early July 21 to join in the fun!
