Event honors daughter of Local 110 secretary

MISSISSIPPI RIVER DISTRICT 5 held its first annual car show fundraiser benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society August 17 at the district’s offices in Slidell, La. Despite bad weather, 30 vintage cars were available for viewing. T-shirt sales and an auction of donated items brought in $2,300.

“We did the show in honor of LeLe Foster, the 4-year-old daughter of Monica Foster, the secretary of Local 110 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi,” said District 5 BM-ES Dave Hegeman. “LeLe was recently diagnosed with leukemia and is undergoing chemotherapy. I want to thank Local 110 and Local 37 and their staffs for making the car show happen. We couldn’t have done it without them.”

Among the vehicles displayed were five by Local 37 members: a 1935 Ford by Allen Malley, a 1951 Henry J by Skip Hartman, a 1962 Corvette by Dominic Greco, a 1969 Chevy C10 Custom truck by Jimmy Cochran, and a 1972 Chevelle by BM-ST Lionel Hanna.
