Car show for charity

SEVENTY cars participated in the Naughty Boyz Car Youth Club car show last Saturday at the Suva Handicraft Centre, raising $3708.80 in proceeds.
The 70 cars participated in the 34 categories, with winners being awarded in various categories. Special surprise trophies were also awarded to participants who made an extra effort during the show.
“We have received compliments from the people who were there as audience for the show saying it was a good show,” Naughty Boyz Car Youth Club vice president Zubeena Ali said.
“People thought it was a fair show because none of the car members participated (but only displayed their vehicles at the show) and we had judges who knew a lot about cars judging for the night.
“We tried to judge those 70 cars fairly and we made this charity event a great success through that.”
She said they had more than 500 people who turned up as audience, which was a big number since it was the first car show to be organised by the club.
“We didn’t except to have such a good number there to just watch the event. There was also entertainment with dance competition for those who attended,” she said.
“The show started on time and the gate was open for participants at 4pm to set up their cars. The show went past 9pm as it took time for the judges to judge each car in the different categories. The event finally came to a close at 11pm.
“The money raised were from entry fees and refreshment which were sold at the venue.
“The club has liaised with Dilkusha Girls Home of when we can be there and organise either lunch or dinner for the children on the day we visit. We will probably go on the 30th of this month.
“We would like to thank our sponsors without whom this charity event wouldn’t be possible. Our sponsors are Alliance Francaise De Suva (Language and Cultural Centre), Max Earthworks (Fiji), The Fiji Times, Ngel & Ngel Taxis, Classic Paints, Stationary Express and Reliable Computers.
She said it was good to have the Ministry of Youth and Sports director George Francis as chief guest at the event.
