“Don’t have a classic car or motorcycle? Don’t worry”, says Gaglardi, “Bring your lawn chair or a picnic blanket and be a part of this great event supporting those in need in our own backyard.”

The Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope The Gateway of Hope opened its doors to the community of Langley in November 2009.
