Car Show to Benefit Make-A-Wish Efforts

Auto buffs who want to help children with life-threatening diseases are wanted for the Amgen Annual Classic Car Show on Sunday in Thousand Oaks.

The seventh annual cavalcade of cars, motorcycles and trucks is a fund-raiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Tri-Counties and will help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. The event will be held at Amgen headquarters, 2150 W. Hillcrest Drive, Building 34.

Since Amgen began sponsoring the car show, the biotechnology firm has raised more than $25,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, said Shanna Wasson Taylor, a spokeswoman for the charity.

More than 90 trophies will be awarded in the car, motorcycle and truck categories, with additional awards for best of show, best club, coolest bike and vehicle under construction.


Make-A-Wish volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the organization, and how groups can hold events to benefit the foundation.

In addition, there will be a table for those who want to make a donation. Food and beverages will be available.

Registration is $15 for the event, which takes place from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
