On July 21st, 2013 the parents of Derek Schnapp, Jim and Eileen held the 2nd Annual ‘Car Show for a Cure’. This fundraiser is in honor of their son who fought a very rare form of Sarcoma. All donations go towards The Sarcoma Foundation. He was only 17 when he passed away.
Derek had a passion for cars and his father thought the best way to honor his son was to have a car show for all to enjoy. There were raffles, live music, games, crafts, food and plenty of classic cars.
“I’m Derek. Life is worth living no matter how bad things may seem. There is always love and some purpose for you, if you just love peace will follow. The world is too messed up to be negative, being positive will change your life drastically, you will realize that your life is nowhere near as bad as you thought. Live life, love much, laugh often. Peace –D”
D.J. Wagner Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. had the opportunity to be a sponsor for this foundation the second year in a row.
Our President, Drew Wagner had this statement about the remarkable experience,
“I am so fortunate they asked D.J. Wagner Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. to part of the sponsorship for the event. Walking through the crowd and seeing all the volunteers and supporters really makes me think about how fragile and precious life is. Jim and Eileen have made a decision to keep Derek’s memory alive and also support the fight to end the terrible disease. One of the greatest opportunities that appear in life and business is being able to support a great cause and friends like this.”
