Race fans and residents stopped by to help raise funds for Down Syndrome.

Sprint Car Racer Chris Walraven showed his car in front of Bruxvoort’s Decorating as friends sold lemonade and cookies to raise funds for Gigi’s Playhouse. Walraven tells KNIA/KRLS News he’s been working with Gigi’s Playhouse for the past three years through various events and with a logo on the car to raise awareness.

The organization is expanding tutoring services for children with down syndrome to Central College this fall.
