Hot Rods for the Homeless
What’s that rumble in the distance? It’s the sound of all the hot rods roaring their way to the Redcliffe Showgrounds for Hot Rods for the Homeless!

Hot Rods for the Homeless is a car and bike show to be held at the Redcliffe Showgrounds on Saturday 24th November.

CEO of the event, Rohan Robertson, is looking forward to welcoming over 250 participants and 1000 visitors to the showgrounds.

Rohan is excited to share the incredible vehicles, talented bands, and exciting range of food trucks with all the visitors to the show.

“The spectators can walk around the display vehicles and talk to the owners about their vehicles,” Rohan explained.

“We will also be having raffles and auctions on the day.”

With many trophies and prizes to be awarded, for categories such as Best Muscle Car, Best Hot Rod, and Best Club Display, there is sure to be plenty to enjoy, for spectators of all ages.

“The event is run entirely by volunteers, to support the homeless in our community,” Rohan explains.

“[It] is fully funded prior to the day and all of the money raised at the event, goes directly to the cause.

“The Breakfast Club is run by an amazing team of volunteers, who use  fundraising events, such as Hot Rods For The Homeless and donations, to buy food for meals and to pay the rent for their hall and storage facility.”

The Breakfast Club is a volunteer-run organisation that provides a very important service to the Redcliffe area. It relies on the kindness of the community to assist with their mission to help the homeless in the local area.

“The Breakfast Club has been running successfully for almost thirteen years and currently serves around 1,500 meals a month,” Rohan said.

“Guests can enjoy a full, cooked breakfast and beverages — all for free. Some of the guests are homeless, others are on low or fixed incomes and struggle to make their money stretch.

“[The] Breakfast Club offers much more than food. For many guests, the most important thing is the chance to mix with other people in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.”

Although this year marks the first Hot Rods for the Homeless event, there are plans to run it annually.

Do you run a local business and would like to sponsor the event? Rohan is keen to hear from anyone who would like to get involved. Contact rohanrobertson07@gmail.com for further information.
