ANGELS: Classic car show, party

a huge success

Dear donors, volunteers and classic car enthusiasts:

Thank you for making The Silver Angels for the Elderly first Classic Car Poker Run, Car Show and Party a huge success! More than $2,000 was raised on Sept. 14. All proceeds are dedicated to our personalized birthday present ministry and special activities. By visiting isolated seniors, who often have no visitors at their facility, we assure them that they are loved, cherished and not forgotten.

Seventeen classic car entries visited five local retirement homes to collect a poker card. The residents reminisced about their favorite as the cars drove by. The drivers were rewarded with smiles, stories and even an offer to “swap wheels!” Many drivers commented that this was the best car poker run they’d experienced. Drivers returned to the Hayden Eagles to participate in a car show and People’s Choice Award.

The 50s themed after party included appetizers, homemade cookies, raffles, silent auctions and dancing to live music by the Rolling Bones. Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place were given to the lucky poker hands.

Our dedicated “Angels” were essential to our success. Thank you, Wendy Werner, Peggy Lemm, Karen Gardy, Debby Fettig, Kersten Brinkworth, Kathy Hostetter, Jan D’Arc, Jeanne MacConnell, Teresa Richardson, Reina Moore, Tiffany Walker, Walt Cole and to those who jumped in to help.

Thanks to the more than 40 local businesses and individuals who donated cash, raffle and silent auction items. This year’s event would not have been possible without our generous sponsors: Hayden Lake Eagles, Thrivent Financial, Century 21 Butler and Associates, Candlelight Christian Fellowship, Empire Airlines, J&R Electronics Inc., Invisible Fence, Super 1 Foods and Budget Blinds.

We hope you can join us next year!
