VESTAL (WBNG) – Vestal Elks Lodge hosted their second annual Veterans Car Show featuring dozens of vintage cars.

All proceeds went to local veterans and several local law enforcement agencies for Project Lifesaver, which is tracking devices for dementia and autism.

This year, Lodge members collected golf balls for the Wounded Warriors Bunkers in Baghdad program to aid veterans and current soldiers.

Organizer Mindy Moniz says it was great to see the community again after the auto show was canceled last year.

“We just want to thank the community for their support,” said Moniz. “Not just for supporting us, but for giving us raffles, for absolutely everything. This is a great community and they support everything this lodge does. I just can’t thank the community enough for supporting us and everything we do. “

The Vestal Elks members collected over 18,000 golf balls and urged all other lodges in the district to conduct their own golf ball collection for this purpose.
