The Youth Rally Committee creates a community for young people with rare medical conditions to bond over shared experiences, learn about symptom management, and find relief from the sense of alienation that accompanies these rare conditions. Kids aged 11–17 with bowel and bladder disorders such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, and cancers of the bowel or bladder come together once a year for a weeklong rally on a college campus. During their stay, they take part in outdoor games and off-campus trips to local museums, and learn how to manage their conditions with activities overseen by nurses and counselors who also have similar conditions. Counselor skits and a camp dances relieve stress in the evenings, while off-campus events promote medical self-management in a public setting.

Racetrack Auto Spa & Lube uses a soft-touch cleaning system to gently restore cars to their natural states of sparkle. During The Works washes, high-speed transporters receive triple-foam soapings, hand-towel pat downs, and polishings. Auto pamperers vacuum car floors and seats, wipe the dashboard, clean and defog windows, and clear dirt and jam from doorjambs. The wash also includes an undercarriage wash, wheel treatment, and clear coats of protective wax that make a car shine brighter than a bird wrapped in tinfoil flying toward the sun.

When it comes to making memories, nothing captures your guests' true personalities quite like a My Picture Lounge photo booth. At parties and special events, up to 10 people pile in, and suddenly tongues are sticking out, faces are crunching up, and eye are going googly. Wacky props such as masquerade-style masks and cowboy hats only encourage the mirth-making, and ensure a barrage of candid, one-of-a-kind shots. But despite all the kookiness, the My Picture Lounge booths deliver completely professional images. Backgrounds with sparkles and wallpaper patterns assist in that area, as do the studio-quality lights and onsite attendant.
While the photo booths are a fun way to create memories, the photos themselves make great keepsakes, and add-ons such as scrapbooks and photo strip frames can dress up the images and preserve the memories for years to come. And, My Picture Lounge can even customize a DVD montage of all the event's images, set to music or a recording of your favorite bird calls.
