The recently contested Mr. Aruba's Bench Nationals and Charity Challenge raised $4,000 for the JEGS Foundation's Racing For Cancer Research on a chilly day in late January. However, the weather did little to cool the generosity of the participants, who gave early and often at the event.

The annual event was once again organized and promoted by Mike DeChicco and Jane Graebner, aka Mr. and Mrs. Aruba.
