The Knights of Columbus are inviting car lovers to bring their prized vehicles or simply browse others' one-of-a-kind machines at their third annual car show Saturday.
The show kicks off at 11 a.m. at Evans High School on Cox Road in Evans.
"Last year, we had somewhere around 60 cars," said Don DeClue, the chairman of the car show. "All kinds of cars are welcome. Last year, we ranged from a 1920s model Ford Model T to 2005 Corvettes.''
Anyone is welcome to enter the show for a $25 registration fee on the day of the show.
First-, second- and third-place prizes will be awarded based on spectator ballots. DeClue said last year's spectator winners were a 1939 Chevrolet coupe stree trod, a 1955 Ford Thunderbird and a 1920s Ford Model T.
Judges will award a first-place $100 prize, second-place $75 prize and third-place $50 prize and 25 prizes of $25 for fourth place. Specialty prizes for categories such as best-painted and best-engineered vehicles also will be awarded.
"We give away, I think, close to $1,000 or a little better in cash prizes, plus trophies," DeClue said.
The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal Catholic service organization dedicated to charity and volunteerism. Knights' Council 8495 is one of the largest donors to the Columbia County Special Olympics and supports other events and charities such as the Jenny Clark Scholarship.
The council is based out of St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Church, which recently moved to Columbia Road. During the move, DeClue said, the Knights lost their meeting area and now meet in a building on the Columbia Road property that will be torn down to make way for a new sanctuary.
"This (car show) was put together in an attempt to have a fundraiser to get us a building fund going," DeClue said.
The car show includes hourly raffle prizes, food and concessions, a silent auction and rock 'n' roll from the 1950s, '60s and '70s.
