Local rock bands and NASCAR team join forces to support Waterbury fire victims

On March 26, 2011, a devastating fire left the Bisson Family of Waterbuy, CT homeless and critically injured their father, Richard Bisson, who remains in the hospital burn unit. While Richard faces a long, painfulr recovery and his family struggles to get back on their feet, support is coming from some unlikely sources – NASCAR Racing and Rock & Roll.

On Sunday July 10th, local rock bands “River Mud” and “All In” will host a fundraiser to benefit the Bissons, joining forces with NASCAR racer Pete Thickett and his Competition Systems Racing Team. Thickett has generously offered to donate all of his winnings on the 2011 NASCAR Late Model Series to the Bissons. With River Mud, All In and a number of local businesses stepping up to support the “Racing for the Bisson Family” effort, every checkered flag becomes a victory for a family in need.

Everyone is encouraged to come out to the event and have a great time while helping support the “Racing for the Bisson Family” cause. Featuring live music, prizes and fun, the fundraiser runs from 2-8 p.m. on Sunday July 10th at City Limits in Waterbury. In addition to the great music, driver Pete Thickett will be on hand to “talk racing” and give you an up close tour of his #33 race car. Tickets are available at the door for a $10.00 minimum donation.
