Join us for Wheeling for the Stars to benefit the Williams Syndrome Association in honor of the Edwards Family. More information, including sign ups, will be released shortly but please mark you calendars for a fun day of wheeling at AOAA to benefit an amazing charity. The day will end with raffles from vendors like Quadratec and we will have tshirts with the event logo on them for sale. -All- profits go to the Williams Syndrome Association.
On July[masked], Julie Burton Edwards and her three children Jacob, Brinley and Paxton were taken this world well before their time in a tragic murder-suicide. Jacob, widely known for his affection for "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"m was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome at a young age and Julie was very active in that community trying to raise awareness and funds. Julie and children were members of an even larger family...the Jeep community. She was a long time member of Delaware Jeep Association and her brother, Will Burton, is a member of Infidel Jeepers and others. This event is to help further Williams Syndrome research in memory of the Edwards family.
Trail fees for the day are $40 per vehicle with -no- additional costs for passengers. At least $10 per vehicle will be donated to Williams Syndrome Association.

“I am the mother of a veteran who was medically discharged, who saw the Army as his life. The past 2 years have been hard on him and his family. I watched him struggle financially, physically and emotionally. I came to the event thinking it was just a Jeep show, I was so wrong. I am so thankful that I attended and walked away armed with information to pass on to my son. “
