Main Street Lincoln and Railsplitter Antique Car Club to host events on July 28

[July 02, 2007]  Main Street Lincoln and the Railsplitter Antique Car Club will host Lincoln's Trail to St. Jude on July 28. This event will feature fun activities for the whole family in downtown Lincoln from noon to 9 p.m.

Come and enjoy the "Super Cruise for St. Jude," starting at 5 p.m. and ending at 9 p.m. There will also be live entertainment by the Country Thunder band, beginning at 6 p.m. O'Donohue's Hot Dogs & Soda Fountain will host a bake sale and a silent auction, and the Girl Scouts will also get into the festivities with a car wash at Neal Tire, starting at 11 a.m. The Lincoln Fire Department and the Logan County Paramedic Association will be on hand to promote community awareness during the event. Finally, there will be a 50-50 drawing and a raffle to benefit St. Jude as well. Raffle prizes include a St. Jude quilt and a GPS setup valued at $500.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is unlike any other treatment and research facility anywhere. The breakthroughs and discoveries made there have changed the way the world treats children with cancer and other illnesses. St. Jude accepts all patients, regardless of the ability to pay for treatment, making it America's third-largest health-care charity. All proceeds of Lincoln's Trail to St. Jude will go directly to this research hospital to benefit the numerous children who are treated there.
