For the love bug

I’ve written in past columns about the Love Bug contest at Fox Valley Volkswagen in West Chicago as pitches are made for why certain area college students deserve a new Volkswagen beetle.

Aubree Hoepper, a 2007 graduate of St. Charles East and currently a senior at Boston University, falls into the category of a worthy candidate.

Hoepper has been involved in numerous community projects, but is currently helping an organization called STIVE, working with kids suffering from sickle cell anemia. She is running in next April’s Boston Marathon to raise money to send kids to a summer camp.

She’s a finalist in the contest for the new car, which would help her get around the Boston area from school to her work with STIVE and other organizations.

You can help her with a vote at The voting ends at the end of November, and the winner is declared in mid-December.
