Raffle tickets will be sold on various items, such as a handcrafted doll house and a 55″ LED television and a 50/50 draw will also be held. Doors open at 6pm and the silent auction begins at 7pm.
The team, which raced at Petty International Raceway, Speedway Miramichi, Cape Breton Miners Memorial Speedway, Shediac’s Centre for Speed and Oyster Bed Speedway in 2015, raised over $7,000 for various charities throughout the Maritimes and is looking to close out their calendar year in a big way.
Harlow’s story, via the event’s Facebook page, is as follows.
Seven month old Harlow Hachey and family are in need of your help!! This is your chance to do one final good deed before years end!!
On October 21 Harlow’s Mommy, aunt and grandmother feared that her head was not forming as it should. So they took her to the hospital only to find out their worst fear that she had a 7cm tumor on her cerebellum. They were air lifted to the IWK that day.
After which she had to undergo a 12 hour surgery and waited days for results that confirmed that her cancer is the least aggressive out of the three sub types. There are two that are considered terminal and one treatable and fortunately hers is the one that is treatable. Harlow has been diagnosed with Desmoplastic Medullablastoma.
Little Harlow is now going to have to have chemotherapy which will begin in a few weeks as well as many treatments and frequent trips to and from hospitals out of province.
On December 12 2015, our team along with many volunteers will be hosting a benefit to help Harlow and family cover the travel costs and medical expenses that are not covered by her mothers work, as well as her everyday bills to survive while Abby takes time off of work to be by her daughters side during treatments and recovery.
