Annual fundraiser for D.W. Poppy school

Hundreds of cool cars and car fans converged on the D.W. Poppy school grounds in Langley on Sunday.

It was the 30th anniversary of the annual fundraising event at the school, located at 23752 52 Avenue.

“It’s the number one fundraiser for the school,” said Principal Balan Moorthy, who doesn’t know of any other Lower Mainland school that hosts a car show.

The one-day event raised a record $29,000 for the school from entry fees from the 670 cars and 2,500 visitors who attended.

Last year, the show brought in $25,000.
