Auto Emporium VIII coming to UAH

Oct 29, 2010

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 6, the Theta Pi chapter of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity at Alabama-Huntsville will host their Auto Emporium VIII in the University Center parking lot.

The event is held to raise money to benefit the Russel Hill Cancer Foundation and will feature exotic cars from around the Huntsville area.

Registration for those interested in showcasing their cars will take place the day of the event. Registration starts at 10:30 a.m. and lasts until 11:30 a.m. and costs $20. Spectators are free.

There are eight different categories in the show, including motorcycles and trucks. There will also be a sound competition, and all the judging will be performed by the Mobile Electronic Competition Association from Tennessee. Trophies will be awarded to the winners of each category.
Food and drink will be available for purchase during the event.

The pledges of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity are responsible for the production of this year’s event. Last year’s car show was a huge success, raising thousands of dollars and bringing out more than 70 cars. The event had been revitalized after a several-year hiatus, and this year is the second consecutive year it has been held since the hiatus.

“I’m excited and proud, as is the rest of the chapter, to be committing so much time giving back to our community and raising so much money for cancer research,” James Lomax, pledge class president and point of contact for the event, said.
