Help made Meals on Wheels a big success

The inaugural Meals on Wheels Show and Shine was a great success. The event drew over 50 classic cars and generated $3,344 for our Meals on Wheels program. That total will help to offset the costs of 1,300 meals for our elderly homebound.

This initial success was only achieved with the involvement of Bryan McGill, his family and Capital Classic Productions. They were able to provide direction, ensure participation and create a foundation for future success. Bryan embraced our cause and worked passionately to generate support.

The event could not have been possible without the sponsorship of Michael Hohl Motor Company, Carson Tahoe Health Systems, Carson City Elks Lodge #2177, Costco, Comstock Casino, Rupert’s Auto Body, All-American Auto Body, Quik Stop Markets, Jamba Juice and the Carson City Office of Business Development, or the generous donation of time and energy provided by Loretta Marcin and representatives of the Karson Kruzers, Joy Evans, Carson City Parks and Recreation, Carson City Visitors Bureau, Rite of Passage, Shamrock Communications, News Talk KOH, KKCF Radio and KTVN Channel 2 and our own Nevada Appeal.

And a final thank you to all the car show participants and the townspeople who came out and supported the event. The success of this event helps to bring comfort to those in need. It ensures a hot meal and provides essential daily welfare checks to our seniors. It helps us to allow people to remain independent and in their homes. Additionally, the car show also provided a shared community involvement and greater community awareness of an important issue.

Thank you again for your generosity and support.

Warren Bottino

Social Work Program manager at the Carson City Senior Center
