Saturday at the Iola Car Show has always been strong, but the continued growth of SUPER SATURDAY in recent years has a lot to do with the support of sponsor. Iola ’15 marked the first year of the Super Saturday Giveaway. The inaugural giveaway featured 6 prizes, including gift certificates, neon signs, and was headlined by the first cosponsored vehicle giveaway between the car show and Rawhide Boys Ranch.
Iola ’18 marks the 4th year of the giveaway, and to say things have grown is a bit of an understatement. Since the first year, the number of prizes, and the caliber of those prizes, has exploded! Last year, more than 70 prizes were given away, including a 1999 Firebird Formula. This year, things have gotten even better.
Among the new sponsor offerings, attendees at this year’s show will have the change to win auto themed office furniture from Auto Inspirations, dozens of great prizes from Toys for Trucks and their supplier manufacturers, RC vehicles from Traxxas, and much more. Rawhide continues to outdo themselves with this year’s vehicle. A beautiful 2006 Dodge Charger with around 80,000 miles will be won at this year’s show!
That’s not all that’s new with this year’s giveaway. The sheer volume of prizes has caused us to take a look at the registration process. Filling out registrations cards for hours and dumping them into dozens and dozens of boxes isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time. In our search for a better solution, we didn’t have to look any further than the local High School DECA class.
We’re thrilled to be involving aspiring young business professionals in this process. Under the guidance of Ms. Laura Scott, the local DECA class will be operating out of the Southwest corner of the tower and accepting registrations in a streamlined process. This year, you will only have to register ONCE in order to be eligible to win all of the incredible FREE PRIZES!
