Heritage Car Show arrives in Natick for the benefit of the Alzheimer’s association

NATICK, MA — A Natick senior care facility hopes to bring back fond memories while spearheading a fundraising effort for Alzheimer’s disease research with a classic car show on Sunday.

“The impetus for creating the Heritage Car Show was to have a fun event that our residents would enjoy,” said event organizer Patrick Capozzi, director of marketing at Mary Ann Morse Heathcare, which provides long-term services. duration and assisted living for the elderly. “It’s also a great event for Father’s Day because they love seeing classic cars with their families.”

The event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the establishment of 45 Union St.

Funds raised at the classic car show will benefit the Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease, an annual event held in October. It takes place in 600 communities across the country to support people living with the disease, which leads to memory loss and dementia, and the search for a cure.

“We hope to attract a lot of families,” Capozzi said of the fledgling event. “There will be music, games and a raffle.”

Classic car connoisseurs are expected, although Capozzi said anyone can show off their wheels at the event.

“Car show goers are a tight-knit community,” he explained, noting the popularity of a recent Corvette show at Larz Anderson Park in Brookline the previous weekend. “They also take great pride in their vehicles, tweaking them and wanting people to enjoy them.”

The facility, located at 45 Union St., has been preparing for this event for months, seeking classic car owners in the area.

“There should be classic cars as well as more modern cars,” Capozzi said. “It should be a good mix.

For car enthusiasts who can’t make it on Father’s Day, there will be an encore show in Framingham on July 23 at Mary Ann Morse at Heritage from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 747 Water St.
