BOURBONNAIS, IL – Caleb’s Prayer Foundation is gearing up for its 13th Annual Benefit Car Show on Sunday, May 21st at Phillips Auto Group of Bradley. 

The event aims to raise funds for families in Kankakee and Iroquois Counties affected by cancer.

The foundation has been working hard to secure donations from local businesses for the raffle and door prizes. Last year, the business sponsors donated over $8,725, with the foundation raising $73,029.07 through the car show. 

This year’s event will feature 20 classes of vehicles, with trophies awarded to the top 3 in each class, as well as for Best Paint, Best Interior, Best Engine, Best of Show, and Caleb’s Memorial award.

Registration for the show begins at 9 a.m., and judging starts at 11 a.m. Trophies will be awarded at 3 p.m. The first 100 car owners to register will receive a goodie bag. Spectators can enjoy the show free of charge and also participate in door prizes, split-the-pot, raffles, and purchase lunch throughout the day.

The foundation was established in memory of 15-year-old Caleb Hoggins from Chebanse, who survived leukemia in 2001 but lost his life to cancer in 2014. Since its inception in 2014, the foundation has donated $66,795 to families affected by cancer.
