On March 30, hundreds of hot rods and thousands of hockey fans will take over the Allen Event Center for the DFW Camaro’s 2nd Annual Car Show and the last regular season game of the Allen Americans.
Hot rod owners will compete for bragging rights as a Top 30 finalist, 4 Best of Show spots, and 1 Grand Prize winner that will be driven on the ice during the intermission of the hockey game. The real winner though? A great cause. Proceeds from the car show will benefit the American Lung Association in Texas.
“In Texas, more than three million people suffer from lung disease, including 14,000 who battle lung cancer. So we are very grateful to these great community partners for sharing all the proceeds of this fun event with the Lung Association,” said Holly Motteram.
“This event raises awareness for lung disease, raises money for life-saving research, and funds critical local programing like educational programs to help local children better manage their asthma and free programs to help Texans quit smoking.”
Judges will include Allen Americans team management, a Village of Allen representative, an Allen Police officer, and Lung Association leaders. More details of the event are below.
