Wheels of Hope take over museum


   On June 6, the Steinbach Mennonite Heritage Museum was the hub of activity when the 27th Annual Wheels of Hope Lions Charity Car Show took over the museum grounds.

   Sam Slobodesky, one of the organizers of the event was pleased with the crowds.

   “It was a gorgeous day and hundreds of people came out to see the cars and the burnout competition,” stated Slobodesky. “We call the show another huge success because we were able to help out people to the tune of almost $5000 again this past year.”

   Over eight hundred people came out to check out the one hundred and thirty-five show cars that lined the museum’s Main Street and surrounding grounds.

   “We bought over $4000 dollars worth of wheelchairs and donated $1000 towards a wheelchair accessible van for a woman out of Brandon in conjunction along with five clubs there,” added Slobodesky. 

    Slobodesky says that the group is already looking forward to putting on another great show next year when the Steinbach Lion’s Club will host the 28th Annual Wheels of Hope Lions Charity Car Show.
