Saturday, August 20, 2011 from 9:00am – 3:00pm 

Mike Whalen will be at the Bettendorf Public Library this Saturday, August 20th from 9:00am - 3:00pm signing his book “Lemonaid: The Little Car That Helps Kids”.  Lemonaid is the story of the little car that fulfilled a dream of helping kids. This book was written after Whalen, President & CEO of Heart of America Group, saw the commitment of local business leaders that got together to race a car identified as a “lemon” in an effort to raise money for the Wildwood Hills Ranch located in St. Charles, Iowa.

Mike’s work with the Wildwood Hills Ranch, a year round non-profit organization he co-founded nearly ten years ago, is dedicated to helping disadvantaged youth.  Since its inception, the ranch has served nearly 10,000 children. In April 2011, Whalen received the prestigious 2011 National Restaurant Neighbor Award for demonstrating exemplary community service and charitable works through his work with the ranch.

Stop out at the Bettendorf Public Library and see the real car Lemonaid, meet the author and purchase an autographed copy of Lemonaid along with a plush toy retailing for $20.  Books and plush toys are also on sale at Total Detail – Utica Ridge Road in Bettendorf, Iowa;  Bettendorf Office Products – Middle Road in Bettendorf, Iowa; and The Machine Shed Restaurant located off of I80 (Exit 292) on Northwest Boulevard.  Proceeds from the book and plush sales will benefit the Wildwood Hills Ranch.
