GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Michigan (September 14, 2016) — Thanks to a generous donation from community businessman Joe Ricci, the Grosse Pointe War Memorial has a new kind of power to move people.

Ricci, War Memorial board member and owner of Joe Ricci Automotive, gifted the institution with a beautiful 2012 E-Z-GO® golf cart. Roomy and comfortable, the gas-powered vehicle seats six people under its canopy roof, and can transport a full load smoothly – and in style!

The golf cart offers the War Memorial exciting and significant enhancements in patron services. Guests can look forward to easier transportation throughout the War Memorial grounds, greater parking options, and an enriched visitor experience.

“We are incredibly grateful for Joe Ricci’s generous support and future-thinking modality. His gift is invaluable as the War Memorial continues to progress as a patriotic, cultural, and community leader,” said Charles Burke, President and CEO of the Grosse Pointe War Memorial.
