Norcross car show raising money for childhood cancer

Jaguars, Rolls Royces, Astin Martins, Lotus, Land Rovers and more will be on display at this year's 15th Annual British Car Fayre beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept, 12 in downtown Norcross.

In addition and for the first time, everything from used stuff to antiques and collectibles will be on sale at the Car Boot Sale being held in Lillian Webb Park. This is the Brits' version of a major yard sale, with local vendors selling stuff from the boot, better known here as the trunk, of their car or truck. Considered the largest event of its kind in the region drawing over 10,000 fans annually, the Atlanta British Car Fayre is intended to raise money for metro Atlanta-based charities while celebrating all things English.

"This year our proceeds go to the Amanda Riley Foundation," explains organizer Edna Berkshire. "Since our Car Fayre is always held in September it is quite meaningful to us that September is also recognized across the country as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and that we can perhaps make a small difference in the life of a child fighting cancer."

Over 300 British-born vehicles are expected to be on display this year, while Norcross' downtown boutiques and restaurants add to the fun with opportunities to shop, win exciting raffles, and enjoy authentic British food and activities, including the Car Boot Sale.

While only English manufactured vehicles, including motorcycles, are qualified to enter the car show, vendors for the Car Boot Sale are encouraged to fill the trunk of any make car or truck and sell for only $15 a parking space.
