Whacking a car for Courtwarming

Carl Gillespie, 16, takes his turn hitting the car with a baseball bat as other Hickman High School students look on. Students could pay $1 for one hit, $2 for five hits and $5 per minute to hit the donated car. The only rule of the "car bash" fundraiser was that the tires must remain intact so the vehicle could be towed to the junkyard at the end of the day. All proceeds will be contributed to the Not for Sale Campaign to stop human trafficking.
