Brandy's Car Makeover

Brandy is a young lady from Creedmoor, North Carolina who has been battling Ewing’s Sarcoma for over a year. When asked what would make her smile she replied, “A car makeover.”

Brandy drives a sports car however, it needed a little TLC. She loves the color purple so we asked our friends at Caliber Collision of Wakefield to paint it purple! Not only did they did they do that, they sanded and painted all of her accessory parts black as well as updated the interior with purple trim for her. They threw on some great looking wheels and tinted the windows as well. Because Caliber Collision did this all for FREE, we had a ton of money left over for Brandy to fill her car up with gas many times over!

A special thank you goes out to Wakefield ATV for the new rims, Braxton’s for the awesome window tinting and Caliber Collision of Wakefield where 15 employees donated their time to make Brandy’s smile come true. We also thank you for your support which allows us to do these wonderful things for kids!
