Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show begins Thursday

Event runs until Sunday at Broward County Convention Center

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The 25th annual Fort Lauderdale International Auto Show kicks off Thursday at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.

Rick Case founded the show in 1991 as a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County, and so far the show has raised more than $7 million for the 12,500 at-risk children the organization serves.

This year the auto show will feature more than 500 cars, trucks, vans and SUVs, including new vehicles, classics and custom cars.

"I started this show not only to give the public an exclusive look at all of the newest cars in one location, but to benefit a cause that I am very passionate about, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County," Case said in a statement. "We're excited to have our biggest and best year yet as we celebrate our 25th anniversary."
