Second 'Bentley 4 Babies' to aid Women's Hospital
Shelly and Jeff Dixon and their children, Dylon and Ava, are holding their second annual fund-raiser for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at B.C. Women's Hospital this Saturday.
The "Bentley 4 Babies" event is in memory of their son and sibling, Bentley, who only lived 28 days before succumbing to the problems of premature birth early last year.
For those 28 days Bentley received the best care possible at Women's Hospital, and the Dixon family wants to repay that "debt" to the hospital.
Their first Bentley 4 Babies event at the Aldergrove Legion last August was a huge success, raising $3,593.88 for the cause.
"It was amazing to see everyone come together for such an important cause and to hear other people's stories; it is comforting to know that we are not alone in this and our son Bentley will never be forgotten," said the family in a statement last year.
Everything at this year's event, held again at the Aldergrove Legion, will be by donation. There will be a car wash, a barbecue and a bottle drive.
It all starts at 9 a.m., July 21. The public is invited to bring their dirty cars and trucks for the washing, feast on the hot dogs and burgers, and drop off any bottles and cans that have been piling up in your garage.
"We had a blast last year and hope everyone can make it," said Shelley.
