2024 INCCC Show-No-Shine Banquet

The 2024 Inland Northwest Car Club Council’s annual Show-No-Shine Banquet was a huge success with 287 tickets sold for the event. This year’s theme was “Stars and Cars”. Three tables of Gents joined our fellow area car enthusiasts on February 24th at the Mirabeau Park Hotel grand ballroom and contributed three raffle baskets. There were some amazing raffle and silent auction items to be had and the Kevin Shay band provided music to dance the night away. The event was one of the best, most well-organized and well-attended INCCC awards banquets to date and will be hard to top next year. Kudos to the Miss Shifters and the entire Show-no-Shine committee for a truly outstanding job
