The North Texas State Hospital successfully held the seventh annual Spooktacular Car Show in downtown Wichita Falls Saturday. Those showing cars of all makes and models had to pay the $15 dollar registration fee, all proceeds go towards the NTSH. While prizes were available to top finishers, many involved in today's car show competition said they were happy to help fund a good cause.
"It always feels good, at least we know the money is going to a good use a good cause and I am always into coming out and supporting the community," said Michael Hernandez, showing a 1978 Monte Carlo.
Spooktacular car show organizer and Chair of the NTSH Volunteer Services Council Gary Southard said that this year's new location in the downtown Farmers Market could help bring in more money than was raised last year.
"We raised approximately $3,000 last year and we are hoping for more this year," said Southard.
Many of the cars also had donation cans to help bring in extra funds for the hospital. The NTSH serves around 300 people daily. With the money raised during the Saturday car show, Southard said it will help ensure that those who do need to stay at the hospital for treatment can receive and feel like they have all the furnishings of home.
