Youth based organization, ICAN, is partnering with the Country Clipper Barbershop to host the 8th Annual Chandler Classic Car & Hot Rod Show on Saturday, February 26, 2011.
The Chandler Classic Car & Hot Rod Show is free to the public and will be held at Country Clipper Barbershop located at 52 S. San Marcos Pl. in Chandler, Ariz. from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This event will feature 250 classic cars and sponsor the youth based organization ICAN.
“ICAN is extremely excited to participate in the 8th annual Chandler Classic Car & Hot Rod Show,” said Christy McClendon, ICAN’s Chief Executive Officer. “This incredible event offers the local community the opportunity to enjoy classic cars as well as contribute to a very worthwhile organization.”
The Chandler Classic Car & Hot Rod Show was founded by the late Jerry Biondi and Maury Williamson in 2003. Jerry and Maury, owners of the Country Clipper Barbershop, founded the car show to bring awareness and to give back to the local community, raise money for local non-profit organizations and have car enthusiasts enjoy some classic cars and hot rods. Since the show was founded the number of cars has tripled and the event has raised over $80,000 for local charities.
