While Allied Specialty Vehicles is leaving Wakarusa, Ind., it’s leaving on a high note, giving Hello Gorgeous! more than charity founders Mike and Kim Becker expected.
As reported by The Elkhart Truth, the Beckers and others affiliated with Hello Gorgeous! went to the Monaco/Holiday Rambler office expecting to have their nearly 20-year-old Holiday Rambler presented to them with a makeover. “They had thought they were getting their bus with a makeover, which they needed it,” said Ashley Krieg, an Elkhart businesswoman who volunteers with the charity, donates to it and was on hand Friday, July 12.
Kim Becker said their motorhome had suffered water damage and was showing enough wear she didn’t think she could drive it safely on long trips, but a company representative contacted them and arranged to fix it up.
When the employees rolled out “Hope,” the refurbished Endeavour motorhome, Becker said, “They brought it out and it was beautiful and gorgeous and I couldn’t have asked for more … and then they said come on, you have to get back on stage.
“All of a sudden here comes this second bus with our logo on it and I started to sob. It was just completely overwhelming.”
