Dirty Cars Needed For World Series Trip
GREENBRIER TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Greenbrier’s 8U boys will be representing Tennessee in the Dixie Youth World Series on July 26th in Ruston, Louisiana.
To fund the trip, the team is holding a car wash at Stratton’s Automotive on Saturday, July 20th, at 2551 Hwy 41 S MAP to raise funds for the trip.
The team will also have homemade barbecue sandwiches, chips, and beverages for sale. Team Tennessee is currently selling raffle tickets with a chance to win a $200 gift certificate for Jimmy Kelly’s steak restaurant in Nashville, Yeti cooler, and a golf package. Tickets will be available at the car wash as well.
“Please come on out and get your car washed by this amazing group of boys. Have lunch while you wait, said Nicole Turnbow.
Following the car wash, at 2 pm, the team will be headed to the Louise Martin Park for a ceremony dedicating a ballfield to one of of their teammates, Braxton Fuqua, who lost a courageous battle with cancer just weeks ago. The field will be called: “Braxton Fuqua Memorial Field.” MORE There will be food, shirts, decals, balloon release, music and a ballgame in Braxton’s honor and Bobby Bobcat will be there at the field too. Proceeds will go towards the BraxtonStrong Foundation. See more below.
Nicole Turnbow Introduces BraxtonStrong Foundation
After losing my son, Braxton Fuqua, to brain cancer in May, I wanted to find a way to keep his legacy going. During his year and a half battle, no matter how much he had to go through or suffering, he always kept his faith in God, he continued to always show love and care for others, and stayed so strong! I decided to start a nonprofit foundation in his honor, I named it, “BraxtonStrong Foundation”. It is a 501c3 organization and 100% of profits and donations will be used to help out our community! I wouldn’t have been able to be by my son’s side without losing everything we had and our home if it wasn’t for our community and I am forever grateful! This journey of ours has changed my life forever and grew my faith in the Lord stronger than it ever was before.
I plan to sale BraxtonStrong items year-round and of course, donations are always welcome! I will also have various events to help raise funds. I want to give back and help mainly the children in our community and surrounding areas that are having to do without due to various situations. I believe God will lead me to what He wants me to help with. I am super excited to see what all the foundation is going to do and how it will change peoples lives!
