Hot rod­ders thank sup­port­ers

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

On Novem­ber 3, Porirua hot rod­ders held a char­ity hot rod run.

This was not a hot rod run for the sake of it, but rather was a run with a char­i­ta­ble pur­pose.

This was Western Bays Street Rod­ders’ sec­ond year run­ning of hold­ing a char­ity hot rod run and auc­tion in sup­port of some­one from our com­mu­nity.

This year we were rais­ing funds for lo­cal girl, Ruby Pen­ney, and her fam­ily.

Ruby suf­fers from Lyme disease, which she con­tracted from a tick bite on a fam­ily trip to Aus­tralia.

The as­so­ci­ated on­go­ing med­i­cal treat­ments for Ruby have placed a tremen­dous bur­den upon the Pen­ney fam­ily fi­nances. This is where Western Bays Street Rod­ders stepped up to of­fer our club’s sup­port to help the Pen­ney fam­ily.
