MSCC MAY 31 FIVE FOR FRIDAY: FIVE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CHARLESGLEN TOYOTA STEEL DREAMZ CAR SHOW

By on May 30, 2019

 

The car show season is full of great events thanks to hardworking volunteers and sponsors who step up to support the show.

 

Many of these shows dedicate their proceeds to charities because car guys are big supporters of their communities so these events send the funds to great causes.

 

The Steel Dreamz car show is a classic example of how a car show can help a local charity  so here are five questions about the event.


1-What is the history of the show (years held, who started it etc.)?

 

“Steel Dreamz started in 2017! It was the brain child of our Dealer Principal, Tim Beach and the result of a lot of hard work from our planning committee and Marketing Director, Caitlin Young.  It started as a way for Charlesglen to host a free community event, celebrate all different kinds of cars, the tuner community, the vintage car community, and give back to a deserving local charity as well.”

 

 

2-Can you tell me about the charity?

 

“This year the charity that was chosen for the proceeds of Steel Dreamz is Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids.  This charity is 100% run by volunteers and survives solely on donations from the community to make sure that Calgary’s kids have a lunch.  They provide lunches for 4,400 kids across Calgary every single day.  Brown Bagging works with school staff to identify needs of students and to plan how best to make sure hungry students get the nutrition required to think clearly, learn and perform to the best of their abilities in the classroom.  The provide lunches for kids in need from elementary all the way through high school.  For more information, to donate or to volunteer with them, please visit bb4ck.org.”

 

“In 2018 we partnered with Canadian Blood Services to encourage Calgarians to donate blood, as only 4% of eligible donors are currently sustaining the Canadian blood supply.  They came out to Steel Dreamz and performed blood typing for those that wanted, as well as providing information on how to donate blood.  We were able to donate over $5,000 to Canadian Blood Services.”

 

“In 2017, our first year, we chose to donate the proceeds of Steel Dreamz to the David Richardson Memorial Disc Golf Park.  David Richardson was our Dealer Principal as passed away unexpectedly in August of 2015.  An avid disc golfer, the park was created and dedicated in his honor.   The park is located just around the corner from us in Royal Oak, is free for all to use for disc golf, or just a place to enjoy the nature of NW Calgary.  For more information, please visit www.drmdiscgolf.ca/.”

 

 

3-What types of vehicles are welcome at the show?

 

“All types of vehicles are welcome! We have a great mix of vintage, restored vehicles to vehicles that have been customized and modified with thousands of dollars of investment.  We have seen a great mix of vehicles the past few years and are excited to grow the show more and more every year.”

 

 

4-Where is it being held and is Charlesglen a sponsor?

 

“Steel Dreamz is held on our lot underneath our hail tents, in case of inclement weather, at 7687 110 Ave. NW, Calgary AB. Charlesglen is the title sponsor of Steel Dreamz and we are fortunate enough to have great support from local businesses in Calgary who also sponsor the show and make it possible.”

 

 

5-What are the details of the show (registration, times events)?

 

“Saturday, June 1, 2019.  Roll in for participants is from 10-11am and show hours are 11-2.  We give out the awards around 1:30pm and roll out begins at 2pm. Its $15 to register and participate in the show, and spectators are free.  This is a family friendly event, complete with onsite music, face painter, free BBQ, mobile video games and more!”

Early June is a great time of year for a car show and Steel Dreamz has all the bases covered weather-wise so that gives this show a 100% chance of success–check out more pictures from last year’s event.
