Heavenly Grace Hafford Memorial Scholarship fundraiser June 4

Monday, May 30, 2016

From 9 a.m. -1 p.m. Saturday, June 4, Car-Mart will be hosting the first ever Heavenly Grace Hafford Memorial Scholarship fundraiser.

There will be a car show, bake sale, car wash and silent auction. The entry fee for the car show will be $5. All makes and models of car, trucks or motorcycles are invited to participate. Entries will be accepted through 9 a.m. that day. Trophies will be awarded at 1 p.m.

The bake sale and silent auction will be held during the entire four-hour event. There will be a wide variety of items up for auction, from a diamond necklace to food gift cards to a painting donated by Ashley Furniture of Poplar Bluff.

Those hosting the event will be serving fried catfish, frog legs and hush puppies which will be free of charge. Donations will be accepted.

All proceeds from this event will go the scholarship fund in remembrance of Heavenly Grace Hafford, a 13-year-old Poplar Bluff girl who died following a hit and run accident on PP Highway in December 2015. The scholarship will be awarded yearly to a student at Poplar Bluff High school who plans on majoring in art or music, two of Heavenly's greatest passions. This year's scholarship was awarded to Poplar Bluff High School graduating senior Mathew Pickard.

Anyone interested in participating or making a donation may contact Car-Mart at 727-0747 or stop by the location at 804 South Westwood Blvd. in Poplar Bluff.
