Springtime Brings Smiles to CARS Kids

20150506_192129_resized_3It is Springtime in Auburndale, Florida. You can smell the orange blossoms and the Bar-B-Q cookin’. The days are getting warmer and the colors of Spring are everywhere as Dylan Martin set up for his 3rd CARS Kids Fundraiser at his favorite Bar-B-Q restaurant, Smokin’ Jim’s. Every month this year, Dylan is hosting this event to raise money for Skyla, Lucas and Maci. These three children struggle every day with serious illnesses and Dylan wants to help bring a little joy into their lives. He has teamed up with Jim to get 10% of the night’s sales donated and the greatest band around, The Nathan Baldwin Band donates their talents to help out too. The Polk County legend, Joey Foley had this to say about being a part of this monthly event, “It’s always a blessing to work with Dylan Martin and his dynamic team for such a great cause. We are honored to help raise money for the kids. They have certainly stolen all our hearts.”

The night brought in almost $600. That brings us to almost $2,500 for the kids already this year. We are truly blessed to live in a small town that truly cares about its kids. We want to thank some local businesses that contributed to the raffle drawings: Patio850, Ted’s Repair Services, Smokin’ Jim’s, Southern Sass, Blackwater Integration, Dylan Martin Racing and the list goes on. There are some new businesses that will be putting items in the raffle next month, so be sure to come. Once again you are guaranteed to have a great time listening to music, eating good food and possibly winning some wonderful prizes. See you next month!

Skyla, Maci, Lucas and Dylan thank you all for your time and effort given!

THANK YOU!
