The winner need not be present to win.

“We greatly appreciate Great Autos of Yesteryear’s support of Angel View,” said Patti Park, executive director of Angel View. “And it’s such a win for people who attend. They not only get to enjoy the car show, they help raise much needed funds to support our programs.”

“Our members will be bringing pristine cars from throughout Southern California,” noted Jay D’Angelo, president of Great Autos of Yesteryear, “They love coming to Palm Springs. And they particularly love being able to assist such a great cause.”

Francisco’s Story

Three days before his 18th birthday Francisco was in a car accident. The driver was unhurt, but Francisco, who attended Palm Springs High School, suffered a traumatic brain injury. Since then, he’s lived with his parents, who along with his siblings, provide his care.

Now 37, Francisco attends the Angel View Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities. One of his accomplishments is his improved punctuality. He’s ready each morning when our driver picks him up. These days, instead of sleeping in, Francisco enjoys companionship, recreation and therapeutic activities. He’s learning work skills like document shredding that will enable him to participate in our new work placement program. He can’t wait!
