About SAFE's "Miles for Smiles" Classic Car Poker Run and Party

96fb30ebc1b88a2712f6f895ce80594834ae127a

Last year we had our 1st Fundraiser "Miles for Smiles" which was a huge success. 17 classic car entries visited 5 local retirement homes to collect a poker card. The residents reminisced about their favorite as the cars drove by. The drivers were rewarded with smiles, stories, and even an offer to “swap wheels”! Many drivers commented that this was the best car poker run they’d experienced. Drivers returned to the Hayden Eagles to participate in a car show and People’s Choice Award.

The 50s themed after party included appetizers, homemade cookies, raffles, silent auctions, and dancing to live music by the Rolling Bones. Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place were given to the lucky poker hands.

Over $2,000 was raised. All proceeds are dedicated to our personalized birthday present ministry and special activities. By visiting isolated seniors, who often have no visitors at their facility, we assure them that they are loved, cherished and not forgotten.

We had planned our 2nd event on 5/30. Due to the Governor's decision to not open Idaho, we need to cancel. Please let us know if you would like to help with our other ministries. Information found on our website. www.silverangelsfortheelderly.com

This is our only fundraiser planned so we hope you can help us continue our ministry.

Thank you!
