Placeholder Image

A variety of activities are planned for today in an effort to raise money for Bailey Davis, 6, of Denair. Bailey has been diagnosed with juvenile dermatomyositis, an autoimmune disease.

The all-day event — named Bailey’s Journey — will feature a classic car show, Freckles the clown, and some bounce houses.

The fundraising event will kick off at 8 a.m. with a classic car show. The festivities will continue until 2 p.m. with 20 vendors and a live rescue demonstration featuring the Jaws of Life and a medic flight helicopter, said Felicia Martinez, a friend of the Davis family. There will also be carnival games, two bounce houses, a new fire truck from the Denair Fire Department, and two types of raffles.

Breakfast and lunch will also be available for those in attendance. Breakfast will be served from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. with coffee cake, sausage, eggs, juice and coffee for $5. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with hamburgers for $6 and hotdogs for $4.

For the classic car show, registration will be held from 6:30 a.m. to 7 a.m., with event-day fees at $20 per car, Martinez said.

All funds raised on Saturday will be donated to the Bailey Davis fund. Donations can also be made to the fund at any Chase bank. The funds will go to help the Davis family with their monthly costs and medical bills.  

The Bailey’s Journey fundraiser will be located at the Connecting Point Church of the Nazarene located at 3200 E. Monte Vista Ave. in Denair.
