Car Show To Benefit Project Lifesaver Rescheduled

A car show that was planned for this past Sunday (May 5) in Catawba County to benefit a program that assists families who have relatives with alzheimers, autism, and dementia has been rescheduled. The event was rained out and has been scheduled for June.

The 7th Annual Project Lifesaver International Car Show is now scheduled for Sunday, June 9 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the Catawba Valley Community College West Wing parking lot. Vendors and those registering cars for the show are to report to CVCC at 11:30 a.m. on that date. To register a car the cost is $25 online and $35 the day of the show.

All of the proceeds from the event go to Project Lifesaver, which is an innovative rapid response program aiding victims and families suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and related disorder such as Down syndrome and autism. It is designed to protect wandering patients, give peace of mind to caregivers, families and communities.

By forming partnerships with local law enforcement and public safety organizations, Project Lifesaver deploys specially trained teams with the most reliable technology available to quickly locate and return wandering adults and children to their families and caregivers. People who are part of the Project Lifesaver program wear a personalized wristband that emits a tracking signal.

You can get more information on the program by going to the Project Lifesaver page on the Catawba County website, www.catawbacountync.gov.
