Show and shine display drives up hospital funds

THE sun was shining and so were the stunning motor vehicles helping make the Marian Catholic College fundraiser an outstanding success on Sunday.

The Show and Shine was held by the school’s leadership team to raise funds for the St Vincent’s Private Hospital being built in Griffith.

School captain Tristan Agostini said he was happy with the result.

“We ended up with perfect weather and a lot more people than we first thought turned up,” he said.

“We raised more than $12,000 and I’m very relieved and very, very happy that it went so well.

“In the beginning we weren’t sure how much we’d be able to raise – this has exceeded our expectations.

“I heard that a lot of cars hadn’t been out for a lot of years, so I need to thank those people for doing that.”

Local car clubs and enthusiasts came out in large numbers to enjoy a spectacular display of cars and bikes.

“There were a lot of hours of hard work put into this event,” Tristan said.

“I’m very proud of the whole team and everyone else who helped out.

“It worked out well that we held it on Sunday because lots of people came after the fun run.

“Thanks to the community it was a big success.”

The family-friendly event was held on the school oval and attracted 140 cars and 30 bikes.
