Charity car show in White Plains supports guide dogs

A classic car show Sunday in White Plains brought together automobile lovers and pet owners.



Kathi Carey and her husband own three canines and a 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass, which they brought to the sixth annual Charity Car and Motorcycle Show.



The show raises money for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a nonprofit organization based in Yorktown Heights.



The Careys attended the show to support their 8-month-old golden retriever, Grammy, who is in the group's pre-placement guide dog program.



Grammy will be paired with an autistic or visually impaired person in about six months. The pooch can also just become someone's pet.



Kathy Capasso is a self-professed car geek who organized the event. She says she supports Guiding Eyes because it is 100 percent privately funded. All funds raised during the show will be going to charity.



Organizers say that over the past five years, they have raised more than $14,000. This year's show is expected to bring in about $3,000.
