Local mom fighting cancer…again

Local mom fighting cancer…again

Six years ago Brittany (Drexler) Dippel was diagnosed with and conquered ovarian cancer. Since then, Brittany and her husband Andy have been blessed with two precious children, Graham and Raegan.

However, after the birth of Raegan this past spring, Brittany found out her ovarian cancer had returned and was also found in her spine, lungs and abdomen. Even though this second recurrence is a tougher battle physically and emotionally, all are certain, that with the help of God and her family, friends and supporters which surround her, Brittany can beat this again!

Come to a special fundraising event, RODDIN’ FOR RED, to be held on August 28, 2011 from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm at Ginegaw Park, Walworth. Tickets are:

Here’s how to enter your vehicle. Registering your car to be displayed at this event is FREE. There are two ways to get your car, truck, or motorcycle in the show: 1. Register ahead of time (preferred) by emailing the organizers at dippelfundraiser@gmail.com with your name, make and model of vehicle; or 2. Register the day of event on your way through the gates. There will be two lines of entry for show participants – one for preregistered vehicles and one for those yet to register. The line for preregistered vehicles will be moving faster, of course, so to save yourself some time, pre-register now!

All makes and models of cars, trucks, and motorcycles are welcome to participate in the show – hot rods, customs, traditional, rat rods, muscle cars, choppers, bobbers, imports, minitrucks, euro, 4×4, old or new, whatever! As long as you love your vehicle, you’re welcome to show it off!

If you are not registering a vehicle but are attending the event, we strongly encourage carpooling. Parking for attendees will be free, but with the large number of cars being displayed on the grounds as part of the show, there will limited space for parking.
