Buffalo Sabres ice hockey fans over 18 can register free to win the Sabres Mini Cooper at the Rotary Classic Car Show August 1st at the Amherst Pepsi Center. Three local Rotary clubs are raising money at the car show for the Amherst Clubhouse of the Boys & Girls Club of Buffalo, and the Amherst Youth Foundation.

One lucky Sabres fan can win the Sabres Mini Cooper in September by entering the contest at the Rotary Classic Car Show at the Amherst Pepsi Center on August 1, 2004. Attendees to the car show will help local Rotary clubs raise money for the Amherst Clubhouse of the Boys & Girls Club.

The Buffalo Sabres lovable mascot, Sabretooth, will be at the Rotary Classic Car Show with the Sabres Mini Cooper on Sunday, August 1.

Sabretooth will entertain show attendees and encourage Sabres fans 18 and over to register to become a "Sabres Insider". Sabres Insiders receive special ticket offers, newsletters and inside information on the Buffalo Sabres. By registering at the Classic Car Show, fans will be qualified automatically to win the Mini Cooper.

Three area Rotary Clubs – Amherst East, Amherst North, and Williamsville – are helping the Amherst Clubhouse of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo to purchase a new van.

"The Sabres' sponsorship will draw hundreds of fans to the Classic Car Show," said Richard A. Wojtowicz, car show expert, and member of the Rotary Classic Car Show committee. "We seek more corporate sponsors to support this cause, as well as helping the Amherst Youth Foundation."

As Rotary International celebrates its 100th year, the Classic Car Show fund raising event represents the Centennial Project for the three participating Rotary Clubs.

Rain or shine, the show will run from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm on Sunday, August 1st, 2004. The three Rotary Clubs will have events and refreshments inside and outside the Pepsi Center. They'll serve Krolick's chicken dinners, roast beef sandwiches, coffee, donuts, ice cream, and sodas. The Clubs will even have live music, ice skating, and other children’s activities for the kids.

The Buffalo Sabres, in partnership with the Towne Automotive Group and Towne Mini, recently kicked off the Summer Tour for the Mini Cooper Sabres Insider campaign. The Sabres home page,, has updates on the tour itinerary.

The Sabres Summer Tour will culminate at the Sabres StreetFest in front of the Buffalo HSBC Arena in September when all of the registrants will be invited to see live music and SabreFest I, with the live drawing for the Mini Cooper!
