Support shines through with $15k

SHINY classic cars, hot rods and sleek Harley Davidson’s covered Federation Park for another great year of fundraising for Ryanie for Tyres.

Show and Shine co-ordinator Robyn Jurgensen said the fundraising had a great start at the auction on Friday night where they raised nearly $10,000 in support of Warwick Blue Care and Dementia Support Group.

“It went fantastic with about 100 people there and everyone had a blast on the night,” she said.

“We really want to thank all our sponsors and everyone who participated.”

The biggest seller at the auction night was the Renaldo Soccer jersey, which went for $1600, followed by the St George jersey signed by Wayne Bennett and players for $1000.

Ryanie for Tyres appeared to have blitzed their target of $15,000 as on Saturday Rose City residents showed their support as plenty came to enjoy the Show and Shine and Family Fun Day to see the 59 cars and 15 motorbike entries.

“It looks like we are going to reach our target,” Miss Jurgensen said.

“Even the chuck-a-choc game is doing so well with the kids.

“The cars today range from vintage through to hot rods and classics with even muscle cars.”

Car fanatics came from as far as Brisbane and Inglewood to show of their prime vehicles in the Rose City.

“Everything is running smoothly and we want to thank the public for all their support,” Miss Jurgensen said.
