Make A Wish Foundation
In the middle of our 2021 season we were contacted by the Make A Wish Foundation in Illinois and was asked if we could help grant a wish to Dre... a 12 year old boy with Pediatric Neuroblastoma and loves fast cars. We stepped up and by the end of the day, Dre went home with t-shirts and more rides in hot rods than I can count. The high-light of the day was the smile on his face when returning from a ride in favorite car... a brand new Dodge Challenger Demon from one of the members of the Stateline Challengers Car Club.
Rockford Fire Dept
