STAUNTON, Va. - On Thursday, the annual Shakin' at the Station event begins in downtown Staunton and will help benefit many charities in the area.
One of those charities is an organization called the MaDee Project that financially supports pediatric cancer patients.
It's named after MaDee Boxler, who lived in Staunton, and died from Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
The project also helps fund research to help find a cause and prevent pediatric cancer.
MaDee's sister is the organizer of the program and says it's important that people come out and support a good cause.
"I think the most rewarding thing for me is knowing that not only am I doing something that would make my sister proud, it's something that helps me think about her every single day, and I also know that having been where these families are, I know that they appreciate what we're doing," says Abby Arey.
Shakin' at the Station starts this Thursday and it held every Thursday. This event runs through September.
