Father’s Day is coming up fast! If you’re still looking for a fun reason to get Dad out of the house, bring him out to the Briarhurst Manor Estate’s 5th Annual Car Show! Here’s a bit of the backstory to the event…
What inspired the event?
The Briarhurst wanted to help make Fathers Day special as dads seem to sometimes get left out a bit on holidays with not many restaurants/establishments doing special Father’s Day events like they do on Mother’s Day. So they started brainstorming what dads like and how can they could make them feel special and get the attention they deserve. That’s where the car show idea came from! From there, ideas kept flowing, and they decided it would be great to turn the event into a fund raiser for local charities. That way, the event would benefit not only fathers but the Colorado Springs community as a whole.
Why did they choose Family Life Services to be the beneficiary of this year’s event?
Alison Moreno of the Briarhurst shared with us, ” I choose FLS because I LOVE what you do and I wanted an organization that loves the Lord as much as I do. It is my small way of giving back.”
How many guests do they expect?
Anywhere from 300-600 guests! Their first year, they only had 100, but it has increased steadily each year.
There is no cost for admission. Food and drinks will be available for purchase, as well as raffle tickets and opportunities to “baptize” someone in the dunk tank.
Let’s celebrate FATHERS together on Sunday, June 17th. See you there!
