The Story

Libby's  Cruiser

My wife (Libby Gilley) was diagnosed with breast cancer in September of 2008 which returned in her abdomen in 2012, and then it eventually came back in her brain in January of 2014. 

In March of this year Libby lost her five year long battle.

A Way to Help

Libby's Living Legacy is a fundraising effort to build a playground to honor Libby's 42 years of teaching children.  We have taken Libby's 1997 Toyota Landcruiser and lifted it to accomdate 35" tires, new bumpers and winch, and a safari rack (see the photo for what we have done so far).  Her calm little "mama car" has becoming an off-road beast that will be raffled off by the Chattanooga Valley Lions Club to raise money for the playground. 

Tickets can be purchased by emailing me at [email protected] or they can be purchased locally in North Georgia at Ace Hardware Flintstone, GA or any northwest Georgia branch of Capital Bank.

If, instead of buying a raffle ticket, you would like to honor Libby and contirubute to the community playground then you can send a tax deductible contribution to:

Libby's Cruiser is almost complete and the Chattanooga Valley Lions Club will be selling tickets for a chance to win it.  Take a look at the pictures...

The fundraising effort has slowed recently and in order to inject some new life we are in the process of "tricking out" Libby's 1997 Toyota Landcruiser to make it look similar to the photograph shown here.  We are in the process of trying to get some items donated and as soon as we get everything in, we will start the build and I will keep everyone updated on the progress.

When completed, we plan to either auction, sell or raffle the vehicle to raise the most money we can for the playground.

Thanks, Barry

More donations have been coming in and we are working on a deal with PlayCore (the playground manufacturer) who heard about Libby and is willing to donate some of the equipment.

The donations and projects that are either in the works or ongoing has prompted us to enlarge the playground and increase the scope of work.  It is exciting and humbling to fully realize the number of people that were touched by Libby.

Thanks, Barry
