Revving up for breast cancer research

HOBART’S popular static car show Shannons’ Take Your Tops Off for Breast Cancer Research will be returning to Parliament Lawns on Saturday 14 March.

Proving a major success in past years, the popular free community event assists in raising funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Kicking off in Hobart nine years ago as the brainchild of Rodney Belbin and Judi Adams, the event – which is supported by the National Breast Cancer Foundation – is now entrenched as a firm favourite with car enthusiasts, car clubs, attendees and the general public.

The event will feature the TasPlates People’s Choice prize, and the Shannons’ Most Prized Car Award, as chosen from the cars displayed on the day.

It is open to entries from all class of cars, from vintage through to modern, and is free to participate in, and free to attend.

The event has become one that Shannons supports nationally and now hosts across other states throughout Australia.

In total, this initiative has raised more than $22,700 locally and a combined total of more than $35,100 nationally for the National Breast Cancer Foundation since the inaugural event in Hobart in October 2012.

Entrants can register their vehicle through Rod Belbin on rodney_belbin@shannons.com.au or phoning Shannons on 0408 314 309.

For more information on fundraising, contact Judi Adams at eventstas@gmail.com or phone 0415 294 610.
