Peace and Love for Cerebral Palsy

Thank you to all the participants in The Shames, a classic ‘60s dance and Cerebral Palsy fundraiser, held on Friday, May 12 at the Saratoga/Wilton Elks Lodge #161.

I can honestly say the “Peace and love” message of the 1960s filled the night with joy and nostalgia. The love abounded from local businesses and our members who contributed to the amazing raffle donations.

The following aided our event: Saratoga/Wilton Elks Lodge#161 and The Racing City Rotary; local business donors; Malta Drive-In; Regal Nails; Children’s Museum; Roma’s Foods; Malta Market 32/ Price Chopper; Stewart’s Shops; SPAC; Dehn’s Florist; Sunnyside Gardens; Ripe Tomato; Nanola Restaurant; 99 Restaurant; Hoffman’s Car Wash; Windy Hills Golf; Tri-City ValleyCats; Dunkin Donuts and WalMart.

Finally, a bear hug to Ladies Auxiliary members who gave generously to fill raffle baskets.

The Elk’s chefs Chris and Doc grilled picnic food while others dined at red and white covered checkered tables named for ‘60s recording stars. Selfies taken in Al Sommers 1955 Chevy added to the festivities. Patty Roberts and her Shames fans made the atmosphere “electric.” How about the Trivia Fun?

Before we knew it, the band played its final song. When we totaled up our donations, we were truly big winners for the Elk’s Cerebral Palsy State Project, raising $2500.00. Peace and love reigned.
