Bethesda Academy 9520 Ferguson Avenue, Savannah, GA 31406

A minimum $20 donation at the gate will be most welcome and appreciated to support Bethesda scholarships.

What better way to start off your 4th of July celebration than strolling the historic grounds of Bethesda Academy and getting up close and personal with hundreds of cars of all makes, models and vintages. Collectibles, classics, hot rods, muscles, racers, tuners, exotics, rally, trucks and anything else automotive on two or four wheels that you could possibly imagine will be on display this Saturday.

Cars and Coffee Savannah, along with the Oglethorpe Driving Club, uses this special event to raise scholarship funds for Bethesda Academy students and families in financial need. Kevin Iocovazzi, who is a member of the Oglethorpe Driving Club, and his twin brother Kim were the last twins who resided at Bethesda until they were adopted in 1957. Last year almost $14,000 was raised by Cars and Coffee attendees, enough to fund a year of schooling for three students.

“We are very excited to have Cars and Coffee and the ODC back once again this year,” said John Reddan, Bethesda’s director of institutional advancement. Reddan went on to say, “This annual event is a critical scholarship fund raiser for students and families who need financial assistance. We are proud to have Bethesda as a beautiful backdrop for such beautiful cars.”

The oldest child caring institution in the United States, Bethesda Orphan House and Academy was founded in 1740 by Rev. George Whitefield as a colonial orphanage for 61 children. Bethesda was frequently visited by the country’s founding fathers and one of its earliest supporters was Benjamin Franklin. Bethesda is a private boarding and day school for young men in grades six through twelve in Savannah. Socio-economic, academic and racial diversity comprises the student body. Bethesda continues its mission of “Preparing tomorrow’s leaders and entrepreneurs by inspiring young men to discover their academic, social and spiritual potential.”
