Atascadero teen showcases pink tractor to raise funds for cancer research

An Atascadero teenager who restored an antique tractor and painted it pink as a symbol of breast cancer awareness is raising funds for cancer research.

16-year-old Sarah Stafford entered the tractor in the Find it, Fix it, Win $2500 competition at the Mid-State Fair this summer.

Her plan was to donate the tractor to local cancer services to use at breast cancer awareness events and fundraisers.

On Friday night, the tractor will be on display at the A-Town Diner and Deli in Atascadero. 10% of food sales will be donated to the Breast Cancer Care Fund.

"My father had cancer, and I also lost my Aunt Penny to Ovarian Cancer. People don't realize how many people or lives are affected by it," said Stafford.

The fundraiser runs from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. A-Town Diner and Deli is located at 7305 El Camino Real in Atascadero.
