June 17-19, 2005: Chip Foose Raises $2,600 at Minnesota "Back to the Fifties" Car Show

Chip Foose, award winning car designer, star of TLC's popular "Overhaulin" series, and continuous PRF supporter, continues to raise awareness and money for PRF. Just off the successful "Wheels and Waves" event and other fundraisers in April that raised $4000 for PRF (see "Wheels and Waves" story), Chip's company, Foose Design joined with Clean Tools and the Rydell Auto Group to rev up more donations for PRF. They created a poster of the fabulous, award winning, custom "Grand Master", a 1935 Chevrolet Master sedan redesigned and rebuilt by Chip that won the coveted Ridler trophy in 2002. On June 18, Chip signed autographs and drew pictures for 11 hours while people waited in the long line in St. Paul, Minnesota at the second largest car show in the world, "Back to the Fifties", for a $5 donation to The Progeria Research Foundation! Chip was very busy at this autograph event, as his popularity among car enthusiasts continues to rise.
