Revvin’ It to Kick It…Burnin’ Out Cancer

20150516_114226_resizedA huge thank you to Skyla’s Smiles for putting on this fundraiser at the Moose Lodge for the C.A.R.S. Kids. As local racecar drivers, big trucks and antique cars gathered that morning, it was obvious that everyone was there to bring awareness to these three sweet children. Even little Miss Skyla had her very own Lemonade Booth to help raise money. As she walked around meeting people, you would have no clue this vibrant young spirit has been battling Leukemia for the past three years. This December though she will be finishing up her chemo. It is so wonderful to see her walking around enjoying life. Dylan was all smiles when Miss Skyla presented him with the trophy for “Best Over All Truck”. When it comes to these kids, you will always find Dylan there helping the cause.

The Midnight Clogging Express was there to kick up their heels and show their support for these three children battling serious illnesses. D.J. Ritchie Owens was there all day playing tunes for the crowd. Guest singers, Pamela Poole and Jordan Tyre showed up to sing some songs. Mr. Al from Paws Dawgs had his grill fired up and numerous vendors set up to help bring people to the venue. The weather was hot but the warmth of the hearts that attended far exceeded everyone’s expectations. It was nice to see the community get involved in helping “Burn Out Cancer”. A special thanks to Terrie Monday and Vivian Phillips for all their endless time and efforts into bringing awareness to the children that the C.A.R.S. Foundation is trying to help this year. Thank you to everyone that stopped by.
