Men’s Expo Car Demolition Fundraiser a “SMASH”!

On a day packed with what the event’s organizers describe as “everything MAN,” from Harleys and sports, to various meats on buns and vendors from across the area, the 7th Annual Men’s Expo at Headwater’s Park was a great success! The event also included a fundraiser that contributed to our organization through a Car Smash that raised money by selling T-shirts and swings of a baseball bat directed at a recycled, dilapidated car.

The car was donated by Car Recyclers of North Manchester Indiana, a salvage yard and event participant. Kelly and Katrina Kerlin from the company also donated their time for the afternoon, hyping the crowd and enticing people to roll up their sleeves and take a swing. Our own long time supporters and partners of the upcoming 5th Annual Bust a Move art auction, The Fort Wayne Derby Girls, were also there to lend their muscle to the effort.

We would like to thank Kelly and Katrina Kerlin from Car Recyclers of North Manchester for their time and donation, with special thanks to their daughter for raising money by tossing a football with participants for donations, as well. What a great idea to raise money at a Men’s Expo!
