The Cork International Hotel is to host the Cork Car Show this weekend and organisers want to make this the biggest and best car show yet. On the day there will not only be the biggest array of cars on show in Cork this year but also a family fun day with children’s entertainers. There will also be prizes for the best cars and bikes such as best vintage, best car on show, best bike.
Organisers are calling on owners of vintage cars, classic cars, a Harley or Goldwing to get in touch and attend the show on Sunday 7th April.
The annual event is now in its third year and is held in aid of Cork charity, the Rainbow Club. The Rainbow Club is a support service for children who have autism or are on the autism spectrum. The event will feature American cars and bikes in addition to some very special vintage cars.
General Manager of the Cork International Hotel Carmel Lonergan said: ‘“It is not long to go now for the Cork Car Show, which is the biggest event of its kind in Cork. We are very excited to once again host this event in aid of our charity partner, the Rainbow Club. We are doing a special call-out for owners of vintage and classic cars to get in touch as we would love to see you and your car on the day.”
The Cork International Hotel recently announced that it has partnered with the Rainbow Club Cork Centre for Autism as its charity partner for 2019. As a result of this new partnership with the Rainbow Club, the Cork International Hotel will raise funds on behalf of the charity throughout the year through various events. The Rainbow Club is hoping to raise €2 million to fund a new facility in Little Island.
In addition to fundraising efforts, the hotel plans to work towards making its environment for guests with autism more inclusive by tailoring its facilities. It is also providing its team with awareness training. The hotel will now be working with the Rainbow Club to determine the additions and changes at the hotel.
Anyone that would like to register to take part in the car show can email Sandra Murphy on email@example.com. Entry is €5 for adults and free for kids and all proceeds from the day will go to the Rainbow Club. The event is on from 11am to 5.30pm.
