GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A man who worked as a private entertainer coach driver for some of the biggest names in NASCAR and the country music industry is being remembered by his friends.

Tim Rogers, 52,  died of a cardiac arrest from a hereditary heart condition while driving. Tim was able to get his car stopped before collapsing.

Some of Tim's friends wanted to remember him and help others with heart conditions. Rick Dixon, a close friend of Tim's, donated a limited edition 2003 "Alabama Farewell Tour" electric guitar. The guitar is autographed by all four members for the band and has a certificate of authenticity. 

Kathy Rogers will be auctioning off the guitar and the proceeds will benefit the Lexington Medical Center's Fundraising Walk Team for the American Heart Association's Tanglewood Heart and Stroke Walk on Saturday, October 19th at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons.

The bidding on the guitar runs from Oct. 1st to Oct. 8th.

If you would like to help Kathy Rogers raise money for the Heart Association's Tanglewood Heart and Stroke Walk or bid on the guitar visit her donation page at:
