Attendees also were treated to a delicious barbecue lunch, with all proceeds going to the Heart Walk.

“This is good medicine. The car show keeps us from losing connections with retirees and contributes to Heart Walk,” said Jeff Pricco, City Light crew chief and car enthusiast. “Like Family Day, it reflects City Light’s family values.”

Employees enjoyed the diverse cars that were on display at the car show.
