City Light employees raised about $1,700 for the 2015 Puget Sound Heart & Stroke Walk with their third annual car show and barbecue Aug. 20.
The Heart Walk encourages all individuals to live healthier lifestyles and raises money for cardiovascular research and initiatives.
The event brought 37 cars and motorcycles from employees and retirees, including the utility’s SMART Decision driving simulator trailer and a fuel-efficient line truck. City Light’s Fleet division helped sponsor the event, and was on hand to display the utility’s electric vehicles. Attendees also were treated to a delicious barbecue lunch, with all proceeds going to the Heart Walk.
“This is good medicine. The car show keeps us from losing connections with retirees and contributes to Heart Walk,” said Jeff Pricco, City Light crew chief and car enthusiast. “Like Family Day, it reflects City Light’s family values.”
