While there wasn’t a lot of sunshine in the 16th annual Access Communications Labour Day show and shine , there was still quite of bit of money raised for the Regina Food Bank.
Mark Rathwell with Access Communications said it’s been a good partnership with themselves and the Collectors Car Club of Saskatchewan.
“They’re one of our partners in this, along with CAA Saskatchewan,” Rathwell said. “The Collectors Car Club and their network help generate the interest in the show and the passion for the show.
A total of $32,744 was raised, and the event has now raised over a million meals worth for the Regina Food Bank.
“That’s a significant milestone in any measure, so we’re really proud we were able to do that,” Rathwell said.
John Bailey, CEO of the Regina Food Bank, said in a media release that the amount of meals raised is “a testament to the power of unity and compassion.”
The show featured almost 400 vintage and modern automobiles and motorbikes.
“CAA Saskatchewan is very pleased to have a dedicated community commitment with Access Communications and the Collectors Car Club for the annual Labour Day Show N Shine in support of the Regina Food Bank,” said Fred Titanich, President & CEO, CAA Saskatchewan, in a media release.
