More than 600 attendees joined Choate Construction for its fifth annual Cars and ’Q for the Cause, benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation. Held in the back parking lot of Choate Construction’s Sandy Springs headquarters, the afternoon fundraiser featured mouthwatering food by Jim ’N Nick’s Bar-B-Q, music by The Mystery Men “jam” band, a raffle and more than 70 classic, muscle and exotic cars and bikes. Some of the envy-worthy rides included a 1927 Rolls-Royce, 1958 Mercedes 190SL, 1931 Duesenberg Roadster, 1948 Chevy Fleetmaster Pickup and a 2015 McLaren 650S, among others. The crowd included Choate CEO Millard Choate, Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul, Ed Bolian with Motorcars of Georgia, and avid car collector and CEO of Innovative Water Systems Ron Green. Also in attendance was Leann Rittenbaum, a cystic fibrosis patient and the genesis behind Choate Construction’s support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which received $175,985 as a result of the event.
