CBS Radio Presents Cars for Courage Boat Drive Sept. 13
Date:9/10/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Cars for Courage, Courage Center's vehicle donation program, invites all boat lovers to donate their worthy vessels to the first annual Cars for Courage Boat Drive. The event is sponsored by the Excelsior Chamber of Commerce, BayView Event Center and CBS Radio.

This unique event is set for Sunday, Sept. 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the BayView Event Center parking lot, 687 Excelsior Blvd., Excelsior, Minn. Participants from Courage Center's adapted sports teams will conduct demos throughout the afternoon. From 11 a.m. to noon our power soccer team will amaze you with their speed and ball handling skills; from noon to 2 p.m. some of our national champion wheelchair basketball team members will take the court.

It's never too early to plan for tax season (or dream about and plan for a brand new boat at upcoming spring boat shows). So, take this opportunity to enjoy a fun family day and benefit a great nonprofit organization - Courage Center.

Cars for Courage accepts boats, cars, trucks, jet-skis, ATVs, motorcycles and any other "motor" of value. The first 50 people who donate at this event receive a two-hour cruise on BayView Event Center's ship "Her Excellence" starting at 3 p.m. Personalities from WCCO-AM, JACK-FM and WLTE-FM will be on location promoting the event. Watch a demonstration of a popular new competitive wheelchair sport: power soccer
