The state of Arizona has a long-standing reputation for its abundance of great classic cars, fabulous golf courses and generous support of their Special Olympics Athletes.

Special Cars fore Special Athletes organizers combined those three elements together last November with a charity classic car show at the Club at Prescott Lakes, located at 315 East Smoke Tree Lane in Prescott.

This year's event will kick off at 11 a.m. Admission and parking are free for spectators and donations are appreciated. This amazing event raised over $12,000 in 2013 to help local athletes compete in track and field, golf, basketball, baseball and bowling.

On Oct. 26, the Club at Prescott Lakes, a member by invitation only club, along with the support of the Southwest Section PGA Foundation, is graciously opening its 18th fairway for the second annual Special Cars fore Special Athletes Charity Classic Car event. All proceeds from this show will go to Special Olympics - Bradshaw Mountain and the Arizona Special Olympics State Golf Championships.

Arizona's own classic heavyweight, Barrett-Jackson, will have representation onsite and has donated a VIP package worth $3,500 for its upcoming Scottsdale Auction as a special raffle prize. All the global classic car auctioneers that come to Scottsdale annually in January are showing their support with generous donations.

Special Cars fore Special Athletes has been designed to offer an experience for everyone in the family with vendors, a fashion show, dog obedience demonstrations, great food and rocking music provided by radio station KKLD.

If you needed another reason to attend the Special Cars fore Special Athletes event, how about having a chance of winning a guitar signed by Alice Cooper or a Stringray Driving Experience from the Bob Bondurant School of Performance Driving.

The featured "Special Car," pictured here, taking center stage this year will be the stunning 1937 Tom Mix Cord, arguably the most famous Cord in

the world.

Registration is now open for car owners and the field is filling up quickly. Only 150 car owners will be privileged to display their cars on the beautiful 18th Fairway and receive a copy of Strange but True Tales of Car Collecting signed by the author and editor of Sports Car Market Magazine, Keith Martin.
