Charity Event: Cruising for a Cause
Final plans for Taupo’s newest Charity Event: Cruising for a Cause
Taupo’s newest charity event is set to take place on Saturday 31 October 2009, fundraising for Taupo Hospice.
The event is called ‘Cruising for a Cause’ and will feature a line up of over a hundred different vehicles at the Tongariro Domain. In return for a gold coin donation, event goers can chose to go for a ride in a wide range of vehicles.
To date, the line up of vehicles confirmed include hot rods, vintage cars, custom cars, trucking rigs and fire trucks, and organisers believe it will be the biggest automotive event ever held in Taupo.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the level of interest in this event,” said Event Organiser, Marty Sutherland. “We’ve had so many calls and emails with people wanting to bring down a car and support Lake Taupo Hospice and this event. We’re now hoping for fine weather!”
As well as the vehicles that the public can go for a ride in, there will be an array of other vehicles on display.
“We’ve got a great line up of display vehicles,” said fellow event organiser, Kylie Hawker. “From motorcycles to boats, luxury cars to V8 race cars, and huge machinery from the ETA project, there will be plenty to look at.”
“We are taking pre-registrations from anyone who wants to be involved with this event, whether they want to bring their car or truck down for a ride, or just to display. We can also take registrations on the day,” said Ms Hawker.
The Cruising for a Cause event starts at 10am this Saturday, 31 October, and is scheduled to finish at 3pm.
