Shanna’s Place restaurant in Errington will host a second annual car show fundraiser, with proceeds this year going to Friends of Patrick Nicholson, in support of Nicholson's fight against bone cancer.

Organizer Bridget McGuigan said the event last year was just a good chance for friends, neighbours and car lovers to gather, celebrate the community and restaurant's anniversary.

This year they will do the same, and hope to help the 99.9 FM radio "morning guy" who is on a leave of absence to regain his health.

They invite anyone with show-worthy cars out this Sunday, Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with admission by donation.

"Come early for coffee and breakfast and a parking spot for your special wheels,” McGuigan said.

Raffle tickets are also available until Sept. 15 around town including at the Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce, Mulberry Bush Book Stores and The NEWS office in Parksville.
