BRIGGS AND STRATTON ST. JUDE CAR SHOW TO BE HELD THIS SATURDAY
The 14th Annual St. Jude Car Show presented by Briggs and Stratton will be held this Saturday in Poplar Bluff.
We spoke with, Michelle Shelton, Human Resource Manager at Briggs and Stratton about the event.
“This Saturday is the 14th annual Briggs & Stratton St Jude car Show. Registration is from 8 till noon and it’s $20 entry fee that is donated directly to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. The car show is an open car show, we do have 90 plaques and nine trophies for best of categories that will be given out that day.
Our silent auction has always been one of the highlights of the event. This year’s silent auction we have an inverter. If you’re not familiar with an inverter that is a small generator of power but it’s a lot quieter than your traditional generator it’s great for camping and tailgating and all those fun things that we love to do. We also have Cardinals tickets for next Saturday.
We have four Cardinals tickets for next Saturday’s game against the Brewers, it’s an afternoon game and we got some great seats up for grabs there. We have a wide variety of apparel items from Ford and Toyota that were donated for the show. A Milwaukee drill, a snap-on tool bag, some jewelry, lots of beauty products, gift cards, we even have a few toys for the kids so something for everybody in the family at this event.
Speaking of the kids, we have added something new this year, we’ve got a kids area where we are going to have games set up, some face painting. Just some things to pass the time and get some energy out. Also new to the event this year, we’ve got one of our racing go karts from Briggs & Stratton. It’s an animal engine, it’s one of our racing divisions products, and we’re really proud to say that we’re going to have that down on display for everyone to enjoy.
As always the Briggs & Stratton Cafe will be open for business on Saturday. We’ve got the grill fired up and we’re going to be cooking hamburgers and hotdogs as well as having barbecue nachos and lots of other great snacks. So if you’re hungry after the parade, come on down, enter your car, have lunch with us, and enjoy the day.
We are still accepting donations if anyone has anything that they would like to provide for the show. We’ll come pick it up, you can bring it to us, whatever works, we’ll make it happen. We’ll be accepting donations through the morning of the event or if you have any questions or need more information give us a call at 686-3004. You can also go to our website at Briggscares.com.”

These thefts were not all due to unlocked vehicles, as some of the windows were broken in the process. Police say that you should keep all vehicle doors locked and all valuable items out of sight. If possible, it is recommended that no valuable items, especially firearms, are to be left in vehicles overnight.
