Gallery: Mopars at The 29th Annual DW Poppy Secondary Show


It was the promise of sunny summer-like weather that drew a massive crowd and over 650 stunning show cars to the sports field of DW Poppy Secondary in Langley, British Columbia on Sunday, May 1st for the school’s 29th annual car show. Mopar products of all types were out in great numbers and represented well! “The show went great – good weather, great cars, and wonderful support from the community,” said Marlene Yakabuski, the committee chair and a parent volunteer with the car show.

Every year, the school and parents put on the car show with all money raised from the vehicle ($10 pre-registration and $15 at the gate on show day) and $3 minimum spectator entries going straight towards programs at the school. This year, the total amount raised was over $24,000! On top of the $24,000 was another $1,000 that was donated to the Fort Langley Lions club.


“This is a fundraiser for our auto shop and tech-ed departments,” Yakabuski continued. “They are able to purchase tools and technology that are used for the students’ projects and around the school – this year the wish list includes a vinyl cutter, a large format printer, an auto shop oil collection system, and monitors for the hallways in the school.”

Student volunteers had a huge hand in making the fundraiser a success as the D.W. Poppy basketball teams ran the concession, while the 2016 graduating class ran the gates and as a portion of the proceeds from the show is going to support their dry grad celebration.


“We had some great sponsors and cash donors leading up to the show including our trophy, dash plaque and poster sponsors, our 300 pre-registration spots sold out right before the show, the Fort Langley Lions felt they did very well, our concession almost sold out, the dry grads sold over $400 in sunglasses at their booth, and we had a great turnout at the show, with people being generous at the gates. Not to mention we had some very great people come out to share their cars with everyone.” concluded Yakabuski.
