Jubilee Jeep Jam Raises Funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) – The Jubilee Jeep Jam returns for another year in hopes of raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. So far, $4,000 has been raised just hours after the event started.
Wesley Wright, the founder of Jubilee Jeep Jam, wanted to raise awareness about childhood cancer in a creative way. Wright decided to create the event because he has a deep passion for the popular car brand.
The event started this morning and Wright is proud to say that they are already halfway to their goal. “We opened around 10 a.m. this morning, I don’t even know what time it is, so in about three hours, we’re already at $4,000,” Wright said.
The event is not just about looking at rigged Jeeps, local businesses are being created with vendors from all over the country.
“I have people so far here from Texas, Missouri, Ohio and Maryland, we’ve pretty much covered every state,” Wright said.
Jeep owners have the opportunity to register their Jeeps in order to participate in various contests taking place this weekend.
The registration cost is $50 and $15 for admission. The event takes place at Fort Park 29001 Bass Pro Drive in Spanish Fort. The event will start at 10 a.m. from July 8 to July 10. For more information, click the link here.
