Anyone dealing with a medical emergency knows how quickly bills can stack up.
Facing financial trouble while fighting for your life is just more than anyone should have to confront.
Dan Rawe, owner of Pevely-based Dan's Towing, is fighting throat cancer.Luckily for Rawe, he has a community of concerned friends and colleagues who are all "pulling" for him.
Friends and fellow tow truck operators are staging "Pulling for a Cause," a benefit fund-raiser for Rawe.
The event will feature a tow truck parade, starting at the Festus Wal-Mart and traveling down Highway 61/67 to The Banquet Centers in Pevely.
Following the truck parade, a "tow show" featuring area tow trucks will take place with raffles, a silent auction, food and prizes.
A dinner buffet will be hosted at The Banquet Centers followed by a live auction and dancing to live music.
The event, scheduled for an 11 a.m. parade start, is open to the public and tickets to the dinner are $25.
Children 12 and younger eat free.
If you can't make the festivities but still want to help, donations may be made to the Dan Rawe Benefit Fund c/o Bank of America, 860 Daniel Dunklin Drive, Pevely, 63070.
