Friends of Kids with Cancer and Gapsch CARSTAR in South County, St. Louis teamed up for a charity event called Cars 4 Kids. The fundraiser was held on Monday, December 15th at Gapsch CARSTAR 4709 Green Park Road, St. Louis, Missouri 63123 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm CST at Gapsch CARSTAR. At the event two preselected families whose children are battling severe forms of cancer will be presented with the keys to vehicles refurbished and donated by Gapsch CARSTAR Collision Center.
Lisa Rush, Owner of Gapsch said, "We just wanted an organization that we could identify with and be a real benefit to. Since Cancer has touched so many of our lives this seemed like a perfect fit for our company."
Judy Ciapciak, Executive Director of Friends of Kids with Cancer, said that not only are the families excited to have this kind of help and support from Gapsch but are truly grateful for how this will help with an already difficult situation each family finds itself in.
The event was hosted by CBS Sports 920 am and insideSTL.com radio personalities Ron Godier and Brad Mulholland.
"We have had the chance to work with Friends of Kids with Cancer in the past and when we found out about what Gapsch was looking for it seemed like a perfect fit so we did all we could to put these two together," said Godier host of The Daily Wrap on CBS Sports 920 am who broadcasted live from the event.
