WINCHESTER — Members of the Highway 43 Club and Ken Boje of Winchester BMR held their third annual barbecue and antique car show on Aug. 13 to fundraise for two local well-deserving charities.

The event was a huge success. Over 200 pounds of food was donated and much more will be purchased with the money raised.

Yesterday the old cars and Boje’s truck shined as the Dundas Food Share and House of Lazarus both received just over $1000 each in donations on very large cheques.

The Highway 43 Car Club and Winchester BMR combined for their third annual Show ‘n Shine to raise money for the food banks at Community Food Share and the House of Lazarus Community Outreach Mission. The Aug. 13 event drew over 110 vehicles to the hardware retailer’s sunshine-filled parking lot, along with many visitors who enjoyed the gleaming chrome, retro music and barbecue.
