Annual fall car show benefits person affected by cancer

Bogey Motors has made it their mission to help locals affected by cancer

MUSCATINE, Iowa - Families in Muscatine braved the rainy cold weather for a good cause. 
Bogey Motors held it's annual Fall Festival. 
Families enjoyed a car show, food, live music, raffles and a silent auction. 
The dealership hosts two car shows every year, with the goal of helping a member of the community affected by cancer. All the funds raised are given to the family to use on everyday expenses or bills. 
On Sunday they surprised Betty Behnke and her family. 
Organizers say they just want to show their community that people care and they're not alone in this journey. 
"Stage two, but it's cleared, I'm good to go. I'm in remission as of last Wednesday," says cancer survivor Betty Behnke.  
"Everybody, at one point in time, cancer's touched their family, whether it's a relative, a friend," says Bogey Motors General Manager David Scott.  "It's nice to give back, we've been there, we lost our mother about 25 years ago, we've lost several relatives, and several friends so, if you don't show that you who will."
Their next event will be next July. 
Since they started these shows nearly four years ago, they've been able to help six families, and hope to help many more.
