Three Wichita charities will each receive $25,000, proceeds from the 55th Annual Starbird-Devlin Rod & Customs Charities Car Show in January.

The event raised more than $75,000, which will be split between Starkey, the Arc of Sedgwick County and the Wichita Children’s Home, event organizers said today in a news release.

The car show at Century II’s Expo Hall attracted more than 12,000 people and hundreds of car entries. It featured custom cars from around the country, vendor exhibits and live entertainment along with a variety of family-friendly activities. All proceeds from the show went to charity.

The 2013 show is scheduled for Jan. 17-20 at Century II. For more information, visit www.starbirddevlin.com.
