Annual Show & Shine
Rolling Sculpture Car Club Annual Father’s Day Show and Shine
The Ninth Annual event has been scheduled for Canmore, Alberta on Sunday, June 16th , 2013. The show will be held in Centennial Park, from 11 am to 4 pm. Participants are encouraged to enjoy the weekend in Canmore with the ArtSpeak festival running all weekend as well.
Proceeds of the event will be donated to “Food for Learning”, an initiative of the Canadian Rockies Public Schools. The beneficiaries of this program are school age children in the Bow Valley who are provided with lunches. All net proceeds will be designated to the program. The only costs associated with the event are overheads directly associated with the administration of the event (stationary, postage, etc.). Rolling Sculpture Car Club is a registered not for profit society, and is a volunteer based club. No compensation is provided to any of the members or executive.

The 2008 show proved to be our best to date with nearly 100 cars and great weather for the spectators to view them. The show also raised another $10,000.00 for our charity thus bringing the total to date to over $28,000.00 for the Food For Learning cause. Thanks to all that helped in this success!
The 2007 Rolling Sculpture Show & Shine has raised over $9,000.00 for “Food for Learning”, an initiative of the Canadian Rockies Public School Board. Over the course of three years the Show & Shine has provided $18,000.00 for the Program. This support for children in the Bow Valley would not have been possible without the generous support of our Sponsors, the commitment of our volunteers, and the participation of car enthusiasts.
Food for Learning
The Food for Learning program was started at Elizabeth Rummel School in the fall of 2001 in response to concerns raised by staff that a number of our students were regularly arriving at school hungry and with inadequate lunches. The purpose of the program is to provide a daily nutritious lunch for students who participate in the program.
In 2006, Lawrence Grassi School also began to offer the Food for Learning Program. Families refer their children to the program. There are no criteria to qualify. All referrals are accepted. In 2007 there were 11 students at each school receiving daily lunches.
We have noticed that students who receive the lunches appear happier and healthier. In many cases, attendance at school improves once the child begins the Food for Learning program. Teachers have reported changes in behaviour for children who were experiencing difficulty socializing with their peers. These students are more able to concentrate.
The cost for the program is about $600/student for the year. The success of the program depends entirely on the generosity and support of individuals, local businesses and community groups. We have also applied for and received grants from the Canadian Living Breakfast for Learning Foundation. School Councils at both schools sponsor the students to participate in the Hot Lunch and Pizza Days. We appreciate the work of our dedicated volunteers who help with the preparation and distribution of the lunches.
