(May 11, 2012) -- This Saturday May 12 there'll be a major Car Show at Police Officers Ass'n Park (behind the Lowes/Walmart at ELB's Towne Center, Carson just west of 605 fwy) hosted by the Sultans Car Club to benefit the Long Beach K-9 Officers Association.

The Car Show will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with FREE spectator admission and parking. An event flier says there'll be a K-9 Demo & helicopter, door prizes, a raffle drawing, trophies and food...and music by "Johnny Rocket & the V-Twins." Displayed vehicles will be 1973 and older.

(If you'd like to display your vehicle, complete the registration form downloadable on this link (caveat: open to the first 300 cars only; registration cost is $40.)

Organizers say 100% of the proceeds go to support and purchase police dogs. The LB K9 Officers Ass'n is a non-profit organization and has no official connection with the City of Long Beach. The group says on its website:

It is a little-known fact that the City of Long Beach does not purchase its own dogs for use in the Police K-9 Unit; the individual officers who wish to handle the dogs must share in the purchase of their first dog...Among its other activities, the Association provides financial assistance to acquire new dogs for the K-9 Unit as well as assisting in the food and medical costs of those dogs retired from the active duty role of police K-9 work. While the annual budget of the Association varies with the needs of the K-9 Unit, it typically costs over $40,000 per year to fund the program. You can help defray these costs and invest in your K-9ís by becoming a personal or corporate member of the Association as well as by corporate sponsorship and planned estate giving.
