Save the tatas

Raising money and raising awareness of the need for a cure for breast cancer, the folks at PDI and 25 other companies donated their time, efforts, services and products in building an iconic truck that has run the country for the past year - selling raffle tickets at truck shows and rodeos, parking lots and parade grounds.

What separated this effort from so many others is that 100 percent of the funds raised goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Their efforts resulted in a check for $100,000 to assist in the fight against breast cancer.

Today, the Secretary of the State of Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes, drew the award-winning ticket. And the winner was Art Pflughoeft, a Wisconsin native. He bought raffle tickets in honor of his grandmother, Lucille, who died of breast cancer. The truck will be named to commemorate her.
