Mike’s Projects: Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation

Posted in Big Mike

You know I love cars. The bigger, the badder, the better. But what I
love more than simply collecting is using these vehicles to help
others.  One of the charities that is very important to me is the
Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation http://www.pcrf-kids.org/ . This
last spring, we had the chance to combine my love of cars with my
passion for helping kids.

Mike Harrah's Bat Mobile

Yep, that’s the Batmobile.  For The Pageant of Automobiles,
http://pageantofautos.com   we brought over 30 cars to downtown Santa
Ana and displayed them in front of the OC Pavilion for free. The event
also included a lunch and performance by OCHSA (Orange County High
School of the Arts—another one of my favorite organizations).  Part of
the pageant fee went to the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
(PCRF) and we also supported Next Up Youth Foundation.

I’m honored to be a part of the great work these organizations are
doing. Since its inception in 1982, PCRF has raised over 22 million
dollars to fund research that has led to medically sound treatments
for childhood cancers. If you’d like to learn more about the great
work they do, please visit their website at http://www.pcrf-kids.org/
