On Saturday, September 10th, car enthusiasts, local businesses, and volunteers came together at The Saybrook at Haddam for a car show benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association. There was a DJ, live music, food, and a raffle. Approximately 59 classic, vintage, and cool cars, trucks, fire trucks, and even an ambulance, showed up to raise money to help end Alzheimer’s Disease.
Everyone enjoyed seeing the variety of vehicles, learning the stories behind them, and felt an overall sense of community; all while listening to music and eating burgers and hot dogs grilled to perfection by none other than the Executive Director, himself – Perry Phillips.
At the end of the day, over $1000 was raised. The Saybrook at Haddam will continue to raise funds for this very important cause through the end of the year with activities such as Dress Down Friday, a raffle which will be drawn on October 16th, and participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on September 14th at Ocean Beach Park in New London. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the response and support that we received from the community,” said Kathy Hallett, Safe Harbor Director.
