Festival of Cars / Kruisin' for Kylie
This is a yearly car show held downtown South Haven, Michigan which draws 200 to 350 cars and trucks (Bikes are welcome). We are currently celebrating our 20th year as a show.
This show is for one of our own ( Kylie ) and the others with this disease/... The mission of the Hunt for a Cure organization is to assist with the funding to cure or control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life of those with the disease
Hunt for a Cure is a 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to raising awareness, and research funds to cure Cystic Fibrosis.
Why hunt for a cure? Pete Odland founded Hunt for a Cure (HFC) in 2001 in honor of his four-year-old son, Dylan, who has cystic fibrosis (CF). When Pete learned of his son’s terminal disease, he knew he had to join the fight to cure CF. The next couple years Pete helped with the existing fundraisers, but Pete wanted to do more. One day while sitting in his tree stand he came up with the idea of HFC. Pete couldn't wait to get started. Because his enthusiasm was contagious he soon had a committee of highly ambitious and dedicated people. With the strong committee that Pete had assembled, success was only a matter of time. The committee wanted to get a major sponsor who would be a good fit for HFC so they approached Scent-Lok. One of the officers of Scent-Lok had lost two sisters to CF, so they immediately embraced HFC and became the title sponsor of the Camouflage Ball and an unwavering supporter of HFC. Soon after Regal Financial Group joined the HFC and the organization has continued to grow since that time.
Pete and the board of directors of HFC are passionate about continuing to make HFC a major force in finding the eventual cure of cystic fibrosis. We hope you will join us in our Hunt for a Cure!
WHAT IS CYSTIC FIBROSIS?
CF is a genetic disease that causes the body to produce abnormally thick, sticky mucus leading to life-threatening lung infections. By investing in CF research, you are investing in the lives of those with the disease. Money buys science and science buys life. Through HFC we can give the children and adults with CF the quality of life and future they deserve.
