NASCAR & Shriners
On Sunday, Oct. 12, David Ragan, our NASCAR friend, will drive a race car with a special Shriners Hospitals for Children paint scheme in the 2008 season finale for the ARCA RE/MAX Series. He will also wear a specially designed Shriners Hospitals for Children helmet, which he first wore in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Kansas 400 on Sept. 28. The race will be broadcast live at 2 p.m. EST on the SPEED channel. Please encourage Nobility to watch this race and to attend the event if they are in the area, and to encourage their families and friends to do the same.
Following the Oct. 12 race, David will autograph the Shriners Hospitals for Children helmet and put it up for auction on eBay from Dec.15-21 to benefit the health care system. The helmet will be delivered to the highest bidder by Christmas. Please encourage Nobility to keep checking our Web site, www.shrinershq.org, to learn how they can place a bid on the helmet.
A special edition diecast car, modeled after the Shriners Hospitals race car, will be available for purchase soon. David will personally autograph each car; only 2,500 will be sold. We are currently working out the details and will provide information on how to purchase this unique collector’s item on our Web site.
We are so grateful to David for his amazing display of support and so grateful to you for helping spread the word about his efforts. With your help, we’re able to maximize this relationship to its fullest potential. Your dedication and enthusiasm are greatly appreciated.
