SCARBOROUGH — Atria Assisted Living and Memory Care Facility’s annual Antique Car Show brought in a crowd and huge benefits to Portland’s Reiche Elementary School, according to a media release from the facility. 

The ’50s-themed “Back to School Drive,” came with food, a decorative atmosphere, prize giveaways, and entertainment by DJ Dick Coffin.

The event fell on the date Elvis died and was a tribute to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, said the release. 

As voted on by the residents of Atria Scarborough, Steve Smith, who owns a pink Buick, received a custom trophy for Best in Show. Several boxes of school supplies were collected from residents, resident families, staff and members of the community, said the release. 

During the car show, Atria Scarborough welcomed and introduced their new executive director, Caitlin Marsanskis, “who has become a wonderful addition to the Atria community.”
