The American Cancer Society has teamed up with Bowditch Ford for this awesome fundraiser. All proceeds from the raffle will go to help fight cancer right here in our local community. It will also help support groundbreaking research, as well as assisting cancer patients and caregivers. So, help support, donate, and cross your fingers!
