Corvette Funfest Charity Event Announced
Annual Charity Event to benefit non-profit group, Fear Nothing
Jodi Waymoth was a part of the Mid America Motorworks family for 13 years. Like most of us here, she wore many hats, starting out as a Customer Service Representative in 1995 and transitioning to Sales and Customer Service Team Leader, and then to Mike Yager’s Assistant.
In 2006, Jodi was diagnosed with stage-3 colon cancer at age 30. Nearly two years later, she faced yet another cancer diagnoses, this time in the form of stage-2 breast cancer. Through her journey with cancer, Jodi made the difficult decision to leave Mid America Motorworks and become a full time mother to her children, who were just one and three at the time. She also found a new calling in life, providing assistance and support to other cancer patients through an organization she created called “Fear Nothing.”
We are honored to support our friend Jodi and name Fear Nothing as this year’s Corvette Funfest Charity Event beneficiary. Since its inception in 2006, Fear Nothing has raised and distributed roughly $200,000 for cancer patients and research. It’s no secret that cancer touches the lives of millions around the world.
As always, the Charity Event is a bridge between our Corvette friends and our Community. That makes Fear Nothing a perfect choice! The 501(c) 3 organization directs 50% of their fundraising proceeds to local patients enduring treatment and the other 50% to private research programs and/or trials in an effort to effect the most change in the fight against cancer.
This year’s Charity Event promises a beach party with a Luau theme! Scheduled for Friday, Sept. 18th at Mike and Laurie Yager’s home, the evening will include drinks, Hawaiian appetizers, a silent auction and a chance to meet some of the biggest names in the Corvette industry. Tickets are $100 per person and are now available.
