The Heritage at Sagewood hosted their second annual car and bike show Sunday. People could check out 30 classic cars and bikes, listen to live music, eat some food and participate in a raffle.
While the show is entertainment, it was also a fundraiser. Each vehicle paid an entry fee. Some of that money will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association's Walk to End Alzheimer's. That's a special cause to people at Heritage at Sagewood, an assisted living and memory support community.
"Our continuum care is the memory support cognition impairment. So we're always looking for a reason to support that," said Pam Taylor, executive director at Heritage at Sagewood. "Hopefully find a cure one day and make a better way of living for those folks."
The rest of the money will be used to support Heritage at Sagewood's memory care unit.
Taylor said last year, they raised a few thousand dollars during the show.
The event did grow this year. They had about ten more entries this year than last.
Taylor said they look forward to having an even bigger event next year.
