ORONO - The Alpha Omicron Pi sorority won't be hitting the books much next weekend but they'll still be hard at work as the group hosts its fourth annual Alpha Omicron Pi car show on the University of Maine Orono campus. 

"We wanted to involve the whole community. There are so many events we could do that would attract college students but we wanted more of a community event that involved people from the Orono and Bangor areas," said Lindsey Burton, car show organizer and Alpha Omicron Pi sorority sister. 

All the proceeds from the show will benefit The Arthritis Foundation. Burton said the money collected through car registrations, raffles, food sales and donations will be used for juvenile arthritis research. First, second and third place trophies will be awarded in all 24 classes, including a people's choice award and a special sorority trophy. 

"We're going to look around, listen to the back story about the vehicles and then award the trophy to which one really stands out to us [as a group]," explained Burton.

The show is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 21 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Belgrade Parking Lot next to the Collins Center for the Arts. Admission is $5 for participants; spectators attend free.

"It's definitely grown every year," said Burton. "We're hoping for a great turnout again this year."
