Larson’s Cause is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) that continues to help local children by providing financial assistance for their medical needs. The organization was started in 2009 by Tylor McKown, his parents, Shannon and Johnny McKown, Candi and Jay Sutton, and Mike and Ann Darr when Smithville teachers, Johnny and Angela Viebrock’s son Larson became ill. Today the organization has assisted in helping 27 families from the Smithville area and continues to raise money to support children with medical needs. One of the biggest fundraisers is the annual car show. This year marked the 13th annual event.
