Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy CHARITY RACECAR EVENT

WHO: Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy brings to life a racecar event like no
other in Fort Wayne. Lightning McQueen from Cars is in need of some strong
competition and that’s where two physicians from Lutheran Children’s Hospital
come in. Dennis O’Brien, MD, a specialist in pediatric oncology and hematology,
and Jayesh Patel, MD, a specialist in pediatric critical care and the medical
director of Lutheran Children’s Hospital, have volunteered. They will be driving
Mickey & Minnie Mouse’s cherry red roadster in the biggest Piston Cup
exhibition since the 2012 Dinoco 400. The celebrity drivers will be racing for
Disney On Ice show tickets for the children in attendance. Approximately 40
patients from Lutheran Children’s Hospital will be their fans cheering each driver
across the finish line.

The grand finale takes place when Mickey & Minnie Mouse meet the children
and winning drivers for a photo opportunity. Celebrity drivers will race; special
patients will win; and all in attendance will have a magical experience.

WHEN: Friday, April 5, 10:30-11:30 a.m.

WHERE: Allen County War Memorial Coliseum; The Ice Oval

WHY: Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy offers a unique way to give back to the
community with a charity racecar event. Disney On Ice skates in Fort Wayne’s
Memorial Coliseum throughout the weekend during five performances.
