On Saturday June 23, 2018 we hosted our annual Mustang Show at Discovery Ford. The event was organized by Preowned Sales Representative, Ezio D’Ignazio with proceeds supporting Carpenter Hospice. Carpenter Hospice is a home in the heart of Burlington that offers both residential-based care to people in the last stages of their lives, and community-based programs for people dealing with grief or a life-limiting illness.
Without Ezio’s commitment and leadership, we wouldn’t have been able to pull off such a successful event. Here are a few words from the man himself:
Mother Nature was not on our side for Saturdays Charity Mustang Show. However, It did not stop all of the volunteers and participants as they did such an amazing job for us on Saturday. I wish to thank you all for your care and consideration in making this show our highest donation to the Hospice of $2,279.00. I am still in awe of the hard work put forth by our volunteers and the generosity of our participants to make this such a success.
A very special “Thank You” to Karina Gould, MP for Burlington in taking the time to visit our Charity Mustang show, absolutely a terrific person.
Karen Candy, Executive Director for The Carpenter Hospice brightened the day with her lovely personality, hard work and dedication. Thank you so much Karen for taking the time to participate.
A special thank you to Angelo Paletta. His Ford GT is amazing and so are his beautiful Mustangs.
A big “Thank You” goes out to all the local companies that donated to our Silent Auction. This was truly an integral part of our success.
