AVON LAKE, Ohio — Editor’s note: The video in the player above is from a story published on June 21, 2021.
While many people aspire to take a leisurely ride in a Lamborghini, not many actually get to do it in their lifetime! That’s what makes a recent day extra special for some residents at the Independence Village in Avon Lake.
During an Italian-themed event held at the senior living facility, residents were offered food, cocktails and rides in an authentic Italian-vehicle!
The group was able to sip peach bellinis and wine, and eat cheeses and antipasto while waiting for their turn to take a spin in the sports car.
“Our residents shared so many stories with us about cars they’ve loved in the past, “dream big” ideas they’d still like to accomplish in their lifetime, and so many smiles and laughs! Today was the experience of a lifetime,” Independence Village Avon Lake wrote in a Facebook post.
“The residents love it, they’ve been acting like little kids in a candy store,” said one of the workers at Independence Village.
At the end of the day, the residents were also treated to a full Italian feast — complete with a violinist serenading them while they ate.
