Sun City Car Club

Supports Staying Connected

 

 

 

 

The Sun City Car Club supports Staying Connected by donating proceeds from their 2022 Car Show held at Magnolia Hall on October 22nd.  It was a beautiful day for a show with sunny skies and 113 exquisite cars competing in 10 different classes.  As part of the event, Staying Connected held a 50/50 Raffle which was one by Gary Tancredi, a club member.  The Staying Connected Favorite Car Award went to a bright red 1999 Plymouth Prowler owned by Bill Blank.  Although the check hasn’t been presented with the final total dollars raised yet, we want to thank the Club for their continuing support of our mission.

​Pancake  Breakfast and Silent Auction

Pancakes, sausage, and bacon! Oh My! What a grand time was had on a  perfect day at the annual Buckeye Pancake Breakfast and Silent Auction in support of Staying Connected. The  Sun City Car Club added to the festivities with a display of some of their  members classic cars. Always a great trip down memory lane! 

In addition to fluffy pancakes, crispy bacon and sausage enjoyed by  folks from all over Sun City, an amazing auction was held adding another wonderful dimension to this fun event.  

The Breakfast resulted in a generous $7000 Buckeye donation to  Staying Connected! It is through the efforts and caring of Clubs and  Groups like the Buckeyes that enable Staying Connected to continue  their mission of “neighbors helping neighbors” here in in Sun City. A  heartfelt THANK YOU to the Buckeyes.
