The Palms @ Bonaventure Senior Living held a car show for their seniors. It also included a chili cook off and musical entertainment by Lyn and Harold Heuser.

Just Living the Dream objective was to provide the residents with the opportunity to accomplish a goal or dream that they have always wanted to do. One of the seniors’, Alan McPhee has always wanted a chance to see classic cars again. Allan love cars and he truly enjoys the designs and beauty of the cars from the 50’s.

Dante Boone, the GVLC ( Generations Vibrant Life Coordinator) was very instrumental in making Allan’s dream come true. He contacted Stephanie Sipe for assistance with bringing a car show to Allan. Stephanie then contacted Pat Pothier, owner of Pothier Hypnotherapy and Oscar Hernandez, owner of Eight O Five detail shop, and instantly a domino effect of greatness transpired!

Everyone collaborated together and Allan’s dream of seeing and being in the presence of classic cars came true on August 27. There were classic cars built from the ground up. Ranging from the 1950s to the present times. There was live music, amazing food and most importantly classic cars. Allan family came, which included his son Matt, daughter in law Erin, and grandsons Lucas and Miles.

It was a pleasure to orchestrate this event with Stephanie. Allan really lived his dream and that is what we strive for stated “ Dante Boone.”

The Palms is located at 111 N. Wells Rd. 805-222-7534
