Ten members of the Burbank Road Kings took a road trip of a charitable kind the Sunday before Christmas. They played Santa Claus, but instead of arriving by sleigh, they delivered a special gift to a woman in need via classic vehicles.
The car club wanted to help a family this holiday season and heard about Sarah Haynes through local businessman Charlie Cusumano, who supports projects to help the military. Haynes served four years as a Marine and is now in the reserves while she cares for her mother and sister who have health issues. She is enrolled in a college program and plans to apply for officer training school upon graduation next year, she said.
The car club's president, Rick Kalisz, led the caravan over to Riverside Drive where they lined their autos up in front of her apartment and presented her with a beautifully wrapped gift basket filled with $500 worth of gift cards.
