Kevin's Story...

Kevin has recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He will be undergoing an aggressive treatment program and will be out of work for the next 4-6 months. His friends and family are rallying together to support him in his time of need. We are raising funds and finding ways to bring emotional support to his family - his wife, Marney, and his 10 year old daughter, Ansley.

If anyone knows Kevin, you know he is absolutely one of the nicest, most down to earth, caring people on this planet. He will always go out of his way to help someone in need.

Let's show him we will do the same for him!

What We Need & What You Get

We are hoping to raise enough funds to help manage his medical expenses and any other unexpected costs. We honestly have no idea what that looks like so our initial goal is $25,000 total.

We (Marney, Nikki, Melanie, and Debba) were able to raise over $11,000 last year for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk. Who knew cancer would hit so close to home but we have faith that we can do even more this go round with everyone chipping in! We lowered the goal to ensure we are able to give them max donated amounts without additional fees. Please help us reach our minimum goal by December 28th.

You can donate NOW by clicking on CONTRIBUTE NOW. All proceeds will go directly to Marney and Kevin. Other things we have going on to help us reach our goal:

Car Show Fundraising Event


The car show on Saturday, 11.3, wound up being an amazing and beautiful success! We had a great turn out, about 120 cars registered in the show. The amount of luv and support was beyond measure.

CHECK THIS OUT...even a blog was written about the car show! And even more amazing...we raised over $17,000!!!!!!!!

A HUGE thank you to YearOne, all the vendors, and Team Spanky for all the hard work that went into putting such a wonderful show together in honor of the King Family.

Prior to the event, we raised a little over $7,000 (which incl the website and vendor donations). This brings us to a total of $24,000!!! All this within 3 months!

We are still looking to raise funds ON this website. We need to meet our $5k goal as this will help us reach (and even pass) the original $25,000 goal (not to mention avoid a 5% additional fee).

Spanky's Story...

For those of you who don't know, Kevin LUVS cars. He builds and judges cars as a hobby. With the help of his friends, he rebuilt a 1932 Ford Victoria from the ground up. He happened to be at a car show when some folks approached him from the Speed Channel and asked him if he would be interested in showcasing his car on their TV show, My Ride Rules (MRR). MRR required a name for his car to give it some character. Because it took a group of friends to put it together, almost like the Little Rascals, the name Spanky was born. And this little rascal is going to SPANK this cancer. Check out the show and enjoy -
