PEDS in the Weeds
Sunday, August 7, 2016

Smiles, smiles, and more smiles. This is what has been experienced in the past at this event.

On Sunday August 7th we are looking for a few volunteers with their cars to be available for showing and maybe driving around the parking lot with a pediatric cancer patient from Advocate Childrenís Hospital in Park Ridge.

We have participated for a number of years in this event to give the children a ride in our MGs. This is quite an event with entertainment, games, music and food for about 750 people and run by volunteers in the St. Paul's Woods forest preserve in Morton Grove. We will be parked together with the police car, ambulance, and fire truck. But unlike those, where the kids could just sit in them, we take them for rides to the end of the forest preserve road and back.

This a wonderful wat to give back to the community and share the joy of the kids riding in our vintage cars.

Plan on attending this year. Contact Reinout Vogt at 847 342 9804 or to reserve your spot.
