Remember the days when you pulled in to the drive in with the top down, a hot date on your arm and a few dollars to spend?

The music was blaring while you placed your order into a portable speaker.

Hot muscle cars were slowly circling the drive in with engines revving.

WARC in Action

Joe Sullivan and Jack Chandler recently traveled to Haiti to visit the Gorge Washington Carver Academi located in the mountains about five miles outside of town of  Leogane. A school the WARC rebuilt after a hurricane in 2010.

Joe and Jack also meet with Cherylann Gengel and got a tour of the Be Like Brit orphanage located in Grand Goave.  Brit's Home is an orphanage that shelters 66 children in the memory of their daughter Brit who lost her life in Haiti during the earth quake.
