The benefit at Regner Park features raffles, food, and music from Whiskey Throttle & Riding Shotgun as former Oil Can Harry band members reunite!!
Dani, Huey, Shawn, Flap, Mikey and Timmy Lee are coming back together to raise money for Mike Penner.
Mike Penner owned Xtreme Auto Repairs in West Bend.
Last November his life forever changed and Penner was diagnosed with ALS. Since then he continues to lose the use of muscles in his body. He can no longer lift his arms and struggles to even walk with a walker.
ALS has made him a prisoner in his own body.
He desperately needs a hospital bed – but he can’t afford one. He sleeps in a recliner in his living room since it’s impossible to use a regular bed.
He also needs help with transportation costs as he can no longer drive. He requires around the clock in home care. The costs continue to add up and we need your help!
There is NO COVER CHARGE for our event but DONATIONS ARE APPRECIATED and will go directly to Mike.
In addition to the 3 bands – we will have:
Food Beer Wine Soda
Jeff’s Spirits on Main will be helping us out with his beer wagon. Everything over costs will be donated to Mike.
Wisconsin Meat Company will be selling pulled beef tacos, nachos, Italian beef sandwiches and brats. 15% of their sales will be donated to Mike.
TAN’R YOU is organizing the Benefit & paying a portion of the fees associated with the event.
Thank you to The ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter for being a part of the Benefit.
