The Ahwatukee Swim and Tennis Center, 4700 E. Warner Road, will be hosting its 10th Annual Car and Motorcycle Show on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., offering a range of beautiful cars for the public to enjoy.
Lisa Robinson, special event coordinator, said the car show is open to the public and is centered on bringing the community together.
“It started out as a car show 10 years ago, and it has now evolved into a car and motorcycle show,” she said.
Registration to participate in the car show will cost $15 by today, after that the fee to register will be $18.
Individuals can also register their car to be in the show the day of the event, and any car or motorcycle is acceptable.
Each year, approximately 65 vehicles register for the show.
The event has been popular with the Ahwatukee community because it’s an inexpensive way to see different types of cars and motorcycles, Robinson added.
Since the show is on Veterans Day weekend, the Ahwatukee Swim and Tennis Center tries to support a veterans organization by donating the proceeds towards their cause.
This year, the show will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project by having the public admission be a donation, along with hosting an 8 a.m. pancake breakfast, where the proceeds will go towards the organization.
The event will also have a 50/50 raffle, music entertainment, and an award ceremony for the cars in the show.
“It’s just nice to have something local, there are car shows all over the state, but it’s nice to have one in our own backyard that people can come to,” Robinson said. “A lot of people travel from different areas to put their car into the show because it’s a neighborhood event.”
