Hurricane Harvey victims blow off steam at ‘Car Smash’

HOUSTON—If you need to blow off some steam during Hurricane Harvey recovery make your way out to Dickinson, Texas for the Harvey car smash.

The Texas Realtors Leadership Program will be raising money for child cancer by hosting the smash this Saturday. Donations will go towards cancer research in exchange for a few swings with a sledgehammer at a flooded out car.

"Having to see your child go through cancer or having to build after Harvey,  let that anger and frustration help pay for research for kids cancer," said organizer Michica Guillory.

The money raised goes to the research organization, Triumph Over Kid Cancer.

Guillory says with Children’s Cancer Awareness Month being overshadowed in September during Hurricane Harvey she doesn't want to forget about the kids in need.

The festival and fundraiser is Saturday, October 28th from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. at The Arms Room in Dickinson. In addition to the car smash  there will be cancer diagnosis target practice, music, food trucks, moon bouncers, prizes, silent auction, face painting and temporary tattoos for the kids.
