Malicki’s Piggly Wiggly is hoping their car takes a serious beating at the Racine County Fair Demo Derby in order to raise some serious money for HOPE Safehouse.

Car sponsorships are available for $100 per slot, and supporters can also pledge money toward each hit the car takes during the derby. To donate to Demo for Dogs visit the fundraising page here or drop donations off at the store.

Shortly after posting the fundraising event on the store’s Facebook page, four local companies – including Racine County Eye – had signed up for a $100 sponsorship.

As of July 25, the list had grown to include Riders for Charity, Indian RacineCastle Lanes, Sound Decisions, Primrose, DQ on Durand Ave, DJ’s Auto Repair, Callen Construction, Buckets Pub, and Wells Brothers Pizza.

The Derby is scheduled for 2 and 6 p.m. Aug. 2 during the last day of the Racine County Fair. The fair runs from July 29 until Aug. 2 at the county fairgrounds, 19805 Durand Ave., in Union Grove.
