B&M and Hurst are set to host the fourth annual B&M/Hurst Charity Car Show on Sunday, April 10, 2011. All proceeds from the car show will benefit the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, which is dedicated to fostering the next generation of industry leaders and innovators.

College is expensive, but SEMA can help. If you know someone preparing for a career in the automotive industry, SEMA is ready to lend a hand. And, if you know someone with outstanding student loans, SEMA can help there, too. SEMA maintains a program to pay part of the college tuition costs of today’s top students.

Due to the quick-growing nature of the B&M/Hurst Charity Car Show, the company was forced to find a larger venue at the Corporate Pointe in West Hills, California (only a mile from its factory), as the new home for the annual car show. Photos and details of the new site can be found here.

Last year’s show drew more than 600 cars from all regions of the West Coast and beyond. Based on this success and the pattern of growth in the first two years, up to 1,000 entries are anticipated for the 2011 event.

As in the past, this year’s event once again promises to be a first-class production. More than 50 trophies will be up for grabs. There will be a silent auction, product raffle and 50/50 raffle. Previous raffle prizes have ranged from complete exhaust systems to a full set of rims. The car show is a family event, and you can be assured that there will be something for everyone.

Be sure to check out surprise celebrity guests, along with world-famous Dave McClelland on the mike. Food and beverages will be available at an onsite restaurant.

The entry fee is $35 per vehicle for those that pre-register, and it includes an event T-shirt. Be sure to get your reservation in before April 1, 2011, to qualify. Entry at the gate the day of the show will be $35 per vehicle but will not include a T-shirt. The event is open to domestic cars built through ’73 and all modern musclecars.

Gates open at 7:00 a.m. and the show ends at 2:00 p.m.
