Truckers not only drive big rigs but they have big hearts too! The crew at Kenworth of Louisville is raising money for the WHAS Crusade for Children.

That’s a fully-stocked, rolling T-R-P toolbox valued at $4,000. Kenworth is raffling the complete set to benefit the Crusade for Children.

“We thought what a better way to do this than to get involved with one of the biggest charity events with the Crusade. So we decided this would be a great way to get involved with the community.”

Raffle tickets are $5.00 with a limited number of 3,000 to be sold.

They’re available at:
Kenworth of Louisville
4330 Poplar Level Road

The winning ticket will be drawn LIVE June 1st during the 66th annual WHAS Crusade for Children.
