21st ANNUAL DAIRY QUEEN OF SEVEN POINTS OPEN AUTO SHOW SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14
Event Benefits Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake
The Dairy Queen of Seven Points will host the 21st Annual Open Auto Show on Saturday, October 14, benefiting the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake. Last year’s show raised more than $10,000 to help purchase a new van (dubbed the “Danny Van”) to transport animals for adoption.
“The Cedar Creek Parrot Head Club and Melinda’s Hot Sauce also contributed to help buy the new van,” explained Shirley Leone, owner of the Dairy Queen of Seven Points.
Registration will open at 11 a.m. with a 2:30 p.m. awards presentation. Entry fee is $20 per car with a donation of dog or cat food.
“It’s a day filled with friends, food and fun,” said Mrs. Leone. “There will be music, food specials, a 50/50 raffle drawing as well as a silent auction. Admission is free for two or four-legged spectators.”
Awards will be presented in 28 different categories, including Model A; Bike; Truck; 4x4; Sports Car; Best Restored; Factory Hot Rod; Street Rod; 50s/60s; 70s/80s; Muscle Car; Project; Import; Most Unique; Most Radical; Best patina; plus 10 Head Turners and one Best of Show. Custom awards are created by Trey Hall.
Last year’s event drew nearly 70 vehicles with Kenneth Napps of Mabank taking home the Best of Show with his red 1933 Chevy Coupe.
“We added a kids class last year,” said Leone. “The only requirement is that the vehicle must have wheels. We leave the rest to their imagination! It’s just fun to see what they create.”
Dairy Queen of Seven Points also will donate 100 percent of sales from the Skeeter Cups (soft serve cups with dog treats on top) to the Humane Society. In addition, proceeds from the 50/50 raffle and t-shirt sales will benefit the Humane Society.
“We look forward to the car show every year,” said Leone. “It’s great to see so many friends come out in support of the Humane Society’s mission. Over the past 10 years, we’ve donated more than $30,000 to the Humane Society. The “Danny Van” is named in honor of my late husband who was a huge supporter of the Humane Society.”
The Dairy Queen of Seven Points is located off Highway 334 at 274 at 110 W. Cedar Creek Parkway. The event is open to the public.
