A portion of the registration fee for the classic and collector car show taking place at the Fall Florida Autofest in Lakeland, Florida, on November 12-15 at the Sun ‘n Fun complex, will be donated to Mason Dixon’s Christmas Wish Fund.

“My wife Pat and I, plus a dedicated group of volunteers, started the Mason Dixon Christmas Wish Fund almost 20 years ago, and we have raised and donated back to the community almost $2 million since,” said Dixon, a longtime morning man at Tampa Bay’s Q105 radio. “Our goal is to give families struggling at not only the Holiday Season but all year a little breathing room to buy gifts and in some cases just put food on the table for the family.”

The Mason Dixon Christmas Wish fund is involved with several other events throughout the year, such as golf tournaments, with the group’s biggest fundraising event, the Christmas Wish Best of the Best Car Show, to be held November 1 in Clearwater, Florida.

All years, makes and models are welcome to participate in Fall AutoFest hosted by Carlisle Events and Team Shelby. By showing a car, the owner and one guest receive access to the entire four-day AutoFest event. The first 500 cars will receive dash plaques for participation, and all vehicles are eligible to win awards.

Pre-registration is $35 and can be done online at Carlisle Events.
