Show Supports Seniors' Ride Program and Local Causes
ORINDA, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2016) - Starting Friday, September 9th, area car buffs will have two great events to attend in Orinda, CA. The weekend kicks off with a pre-show "The Italian Job" party on Friday at 6:00 p.m. On Saturday, September 10th from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., it's the free 12th Annual Orinda Classic Car Show presented by Orinda Motors.
The events almost solely fund the "Seniors Around Town" transportation service, an Orinda Association program, in addition to other charities, raising more than $350,000 since its start in 2005. "Just as important as the financial support is the partnership with the car show organization -- its volunteers and supporters," said Seniors Around Town program manager, Kate Wiley. "All of their efforts help in spreading awareness of our program to future riders and future volunteer drivers. This partnership is at the heart of what Orinda does so well, bringing people together for a common local good."
Almost 200 American & European cars ranging from the 1920's, to the classics of the 50's and 60's, as well as modern exotics will be shown in Saturday's free show. This year's show will feature a special 1 p.m. visit of vintage and modern Ferraris, including a 1965 275 GTB Competition. "How can you beat the chance to see up to 10 of these rare classics and exotics drive right thru the middle of the show and then stop for everyone to see?" says event founder, Chip Herman. "This year's event will also have shaded seating for guests to enjoy lunch and beverage offerings from our great BBQ booth with classic cars around. Then at 3:00 p.m., you can enjoy watching the show cars drive down Orinda Way on the annual Classic Car Drive. More classics driving together that you have ever seen before. There will be something for everybody!"
The show is located in Orinda Village at Orinda Motors, 63 Orinda Way. For more information, visit the website at www.OrindaCarShow.com.
