Habitat teams up with Rust Valley Restorers
Habitat for Humanity Kamloops is raffling off a classic convertible from the 1960s, valued at more than $68,000 and restored by Mike Hall, star of History Channel’s Rust Valley Restorers, which is filmed in Tappen, west of Kamloops in the Shuswap.
To raise funds and community awareness to support its housing program, Habitat Kamloops decided to organize a classic car raffle.
While searching for a car, Habitat officials met with Mayhem Entertainment, which produces Rust Valley Restorers in association with Corus Studios.
From there, Habitat staff met with title character Hall, who owns the restoration shop — and an agreement was reached.
Rust Valley Restorers is currently in production, including an episode featuring the car that will be part of the Habitat for Humanity Kamloops raffle.
