Self-storage operator LifeStorage of Elgin, Ill., which is part of a chain of 28 self-storage facilities in Illinois, Nevada and Wisconsin, is hosting its first annual car show on June 20, and will donate the proceeds to the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund.
The event, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., will include dash plaques for the first 100 cars, trophies for winning participants, refreshments, and raffles and prizes. The facility at 450 Airport Road has hosted a number of community events since its opening in 2010, including a Halloween safety event and toy collections during the winter holidays.
The May Tornadoes Relief Fund was established after the May 31 tornado and flooding in Oklahoma City killed 20 people. Funds are distributed to United Way Partner Agencies working on tornado-relief efforts.
Founded in 2002, LifeStorage has 25 locations in the Chicagoland area as well as two in Nevada and one in Wisconsin.
