“Spark of Hope” announces its 5th Annual Charity Auction to benefit cancer research

The Andrea Pedregon Charity Foundation, Inc. “Spark of Hope” announces its 5th Annual Charity Auction to benefit cancer research at the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center.

The live auction will be held at the NHRA U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway in Cruz Pedregon’s Snap On hospitality area following the last pro qualifying run on Saturday, September 3rd. 2X Funny Car Champ/FOX Racing Analyst, Tony Pedregon, will emcee the event. Race fans are welcome and will find unique collectables from their favorite teams/drivers to bid on.

Foundation director Andrea Pedregon said, “The auction is always entertaining and ultimately raises money for a great cause I am very passionate about. This year we will honor my brother in law, 3X NHRA Top Fuel Champ, Larry Dixon, who was recently treated for throat cancer. He has always been a tough competitor and beating cancer was just another battle he successfully got through. For that, we are immensely grateful.”

Dixon was treated at the Indiana University Simon Cancer Center. For more information regarding his story please visit http://bit.ly/2aWHfMr .
