The Sunshine Kids Cruise to the Texas State Capitol

SHOWCARS 4 KIDS would like to invite you, your family and friends to join us in taking 30 kids with cancer on a wild car cruise from San Marcos to the state capitol in downtown Austin. We are looking for the hottest and fastest cars in Central Texas to join us. However, all vehicles must be in a show quality finished condition. Please no work in progress, no visible damage internal or external, and no hotroding or unsafe acts while in cruise or at any of the locations.

On June 9, 2010 we will meet in South Austin at 7:45 am in the Blockbuster Movies Parking lot off IH-35 and William Cannon. From there at 8:15 am (SHARP) we will head out to the Activity Center in San Marcos. There, we will pick up the kids and have a police escort up IH-35 to Slaughter Lane. From there we hit Congress and head straight through downtown and to the capitol. The escort will block all roads and intersections for us. We will have our own parking with security to watch the vehicles and have a tour of the capitol with the kids. After the tour we will meet the Speaker of the House and maybe the Governor himself! Lunch will be provided for after the cruise. We should be done around 2 pm.

There is NO COST OR REQUIREMENT to attend other than all vehicles being in a clean show like shape. However, we are looking for a couple of good businesses to donate $300.00 each to purchase T-shirts for the kids and all drivers. If you know of a company that would like to help out please let us know. We will have full color graphics, business name and logo on the back of 100 T-shirts. We also encourage you to bring any advertisements to pass out to the drivers. Your spouse and or children are encouraged to come along. We do ask that during the cruise from San Marcos to the Capitol you give The Sunshine Kids shotgun. If you or any one you know would like to attend please contact us by May 31 with 100% knowledge that you will attend. Please let us know what vehicle you will be driving. You can email us at showcars@showcars4kids.com We hope to see you there!!

UPDATE:

OK all the Cruise is on and set for June 9, 2010

First Off let me say Thank You to you all for taking time out of your day to help support the kids. I would like to give special thanks to our sponsors:

Lexus of Austin (Fourth Year Sponsor),
Hill Country Porsche Club (First Year Sponsor - Multiple year participant),
Jason Tiefenauer (Second Year Personal Sponsor),
Universal North America Insurance (First Year Sponsor),
Lawrence Willis (First Year Personal Sponsor) and
Longhorn Promotions (First Year Supporter & T-Shirt company)

Would also like to say thanks to Ace Burt who started as a volunteer with his white Porsche driving kids to the capitol. Ace is the guy to say thanks to for the lunch that will be provided to yall on Wednesday. He is Thanks Ace YOU ROCK!

Due to changing times, There are a couple new rules. Rules of the vehicle must be in show like condition with no damage of any kinds and NO works in progress are still the same. There is now a Volunteer Guideline Agreement that ALL volunteers must read, sign and follow. Please keep in mind the Cruise is for the kids, and the guidelines are to help them have a safe and fun time. I have attached a copy of the guidelines. Please print, read, sign and bring with you on June 9th. Must have this signed to take part. Thanks for EVERYONE'S help and support for the Sunshine Kids. If anyone has any questions please email me or call 512-739-1339 me.

We have two meeting locations at times:
1) Austin, Texas IH-35 @ William Cannon (Blockbuster Video South/West corner) 801 E William Cannon Dr Ste 200, Austin, TX 78745
7:15 a.m. leaving at 7:40 SHARP

2) San Marcos, Texas, City of San Marcos Activity Center (630 E. Hopkins St. San Marcos, Texas 78666)
8:00 a.m.

PLEASE NOTE: We are on a time crunch and must stay on track. This is our 11th or 12th year doing this with the Sunshine Kids. It is done at no cost to anyone driver or volunteer. However the fact is harsh, but the event is costly. If anyone would like to join our sponsors and supports and give a donation that will go 100% to the Sunshine Kids please do so. See me the day of the event (or email me) and I will help you out. If you want to give a donation by check make it payable to Sunshine Kids and we will give it to them on the 9th. SEE YOU ALL SOON & THANKS AGAIN.

Special Note: I am helping a motorcycle club called EVO put on a similar cruise with motorcycles on Saturday June 12th for the Sunshine Kids. If you would like information on it please email me and I will forward the information.

It really is an awesome event.

I mean...to see the kiddos with cancer run out of the huge travel bus and sprint for the cars...

See, they get to choose which car they get to ride in. We provide the car and the "experience" for the kiddos and basically show them a fun time driving up to Austin. You don't have to stay at the Capitol if you don't want. I'm going to head out when the event is over. I've got work, so I'll be leaving at 11am or so from Austin to head back.

But, there's nothing like it...

....seeing the kids run off the bus..."I WANT THAT ONE!!!" "I GET THAT ONE!" "I'M GOING IN THE CORVETTE!!! TRUE AMERICAN MUSCLE!!!" It brings a tear to my eye...all the heartache and pain these poor little fellas go through. They DESERVE a chance....UGH!!! WHY!!!


Come on out. It's for a GOOD cause.

Sounds like it might. I would say it depends on the scratches. But, reading the info, it's got to be REALLY nice. If it was a teeny tiny scratch, I doubt that would matter.

We all still drive together. The kiddos just get to pick who they go with. The others still drive...just w/out a little one in their car. We had about 52 a couple years ago. Was a very moving experience.

Yeah. But, that's like, meguires scratch x, an orbital buffer, and about 30 minutes of your time. Sure, you'd pass (IMO), but..why not get rid of it forever with some scratch remover? That's what I'd do. Hit it with some polish after the meguires...good as new.
