Annual car show lends support to animal shelter

The Twin Ports Mustang & Ford Club teams up with Superior’s Animals’ Voices and the Humane Society of Douglas County during its 14th annual All Ford-Powered Car Show. The goal is to raise money for the new animal shelter planned in Superior.

The car show runs 1-4 p.m. Sunday at the Belknap Plaza, 130 Belknap St.

There will be many family-friendly activities going on while you check out the cars and help support the shelter.

The car show is open to all Ford-powered vehicles with prizes awarded in 14 classes, Best of Show and Spectators Choice. Spectators can purchase play money and put it inside a container placed in front of each vehicle entered in the show. They can purchase amounts in various denominations; especially if they have more than one vehicle they would like to see win.

The group needs containers such as kitty litter tubs and ice cream pails with lids for Spectator’s Choice voting; they’ll be placed in front of show cars.

Those entering vehicles receive goodie bags and are eligible for door prizes.

Kim Culp of Superior is giving rides in his 1915 Model T for a donation.

Volunteers of SAV along with friends offer several opportunities for individuals to help the animal shelter. Chris Polson is working with two Superior High School students, Riley Powell and Jillian Radtke on their senior project. The girls are selling hotdogs, chips and pop. As part of their project, they are learning how raise money by getting donations, getting the word out and working the event.

Dee Fetters of SAV and friends are putting together a bake sale. There will be a wide variety of homemade items for sale. Fetters enlisted friends to put together Animal Cruelty Awareness lapel and antenna ribbons as well as having helium balloons for sale.

Janie Hoffer-Moen is taking gangster-era photos. She will be bringing props from the era and a couple of individuals have volunteered to bring early 1930s vehicles there for people to have their photos taken. Individuals who have their photos taken will donate that day, and Hoffer-Moen will get contact information to notify them when she uploads the photos into an album. They can then view their photos and share them from there. They will also have an opportunity to get a DVD with the pictures on it along with her release so the photographs can be printed.

“Let’s see who all we can get to come and pose,” said Hoffer-Moen.

Finally, there is the stuff-the-truck “Wish List Wagon” for items needed on a continual basis at the shelter. Hope Landberg, another high school student, has been working with Polson and Fetters on the effort.

HSDC is always in need of gift cards from Wal-Mart and Menards; postage stamps; paper towels; laundry detergent; clay cat litter; liquid cleaners like Mr. Clean and Lysol; bleach; 12- and 33-gallon garbage bags; hand sanitizer; toilet paper; lint rollers; 8½-by-11 inch white copy paper; duct, packing and masking tapes; large Nylabones for the dogs; and furry mice for the cats.

All monetary donations go to Superior’s new animal shelter.

The group wants to thank all local businesses that helped with contributions to make the event successful.
