Mom’s Day Out and Chicken Barbecue Press Release


*For Immediate Release*

We are delighted to announce our first annual Pamper Yourself-Mom’s Day Out (and Chicken Barbecue) to benefit Drive For Independence. Our mission with Drive For Independence is to help those with high level disabilities obtain wheelchair accessible vehicles needed to get to work and achieve their dreams for independence. We started the organization while fund raising for Christopher Sauerbaum’s wheelchair accessible vehicle. Chris, along with his wife and many other dedicated individuals have raised the funds for a down payment on his vehicle which was recently converted for his specific needs. After meeting his goal we decided to immediately work on paying it forward and helping others meet this same goal of being able to drive themselves to work and lead an overall more independent life.

The event will run from 10:00am-4:00pm on Saturday, April 23rd, 2016 and will be held at the Hellam Fire Hall: 163 East Market St., York, PA 17406. Funds raised at the event will go towards start-up and program expenses for Drive For Independence.Various vendors are signed up to attend the event, ranging from one-of-a-kind handmade goods to favorites such as Thirty-one gifts, Pampered Chef, and Mary Kay, as well as a make and take gift kids can make for mom. We will also have a ticket auction and each person who comes in the door will receive 1 ticket. Additional tickets may be purchased.

Food will be provided by The Barbecue Machine LLC and will feature Chicken barbecue and an assortment of desserts.  Tickets can be purchased for $10.00 each. Each meal will include a 1/2 Chicken, baked potato, baked beans, macaroni salad, and a roll w/ butter.  Drive For Independence will receive $1.00 from each ticket sold. To guarantee your meal ticket we need the money no later than April 8th. They can be purchased by check through mail, cash in person, or via Square online payment. Tickets ordered through Square will be subject to a $0.50 per ticket convenience fee. Please contact us if you would like to meet for cash payment. Checks can be made out to Heather Sloat with a memo of MDO-Chicken Barbecue- # of tickets. Mail to: Drive for Independence, PO Box 20752 , York PA 17402. Please include an address to send your tickets to you. If you have any questions you may call 717-991-5921 or email us at

Please join us and celebrate Mom while helping out Drive For Independence. Our goal is to keep this going yearly and to be able to help other individuals with limited mobility to reach their dreams of working and driving as well!
