“Also a big thank you to very one who volunteered their time to help us make this year’s event happen…from set up to clean up. My wife Danielle, Dave and Lindy Hull, Pam Vankirk, Mackenzie and Matt Zorn, Rhonda and Cassidy Pluim, and Willy Hinz,” Allard stated.

Continuing, Allard added, “Because of all of these supporters and sponsors, along with all the participants, I’m extremely excited to say that the 2017 DBs For Diabetes event has once again blown away previous years fundraising records. I’m proud to announce that this year’s event has raised over $7,600. This is almost $2000 more than we were able to donate last year! Now, where do we go from here? As I’ve said, this show is a year-round process.”

Here’s what’s planned:

* Already there have been talks for bringing SQ back (looking at making this a 2x event).
* If funding allows, dB Drag and Bass Race will continue to be a 3x event and we are also in talks about bringing in IDBL.
* Looking at adding a car show, same day, and we will be in talks with the city shortly about the possibility of have the street shut down to allow us even more space to grow.

Concluding, Allard related, “Thank you all for making this possible! I am truly humbled and amazed at how much we grow every year and how quickly this is becoming THE event to be at. Stay tuned for more announcements as there are even more things in the works behind the scenes. Here’s to looking forward to once again making next year even bigger and even better.”
