Default RACER NEEDS HELP ONLINE RAFFLE

As many of you know we are having a Online Raffle. Here is list list of what is going to be donated. I am going to let this run until the end of August. At that time I will take all the tickets put them in a hat and let my mom draw the names, the winners names will be posted here. I will pm you with contact information on how you get your prize. I havnt received conformation from all the sponsors as to what they are donating, but i will update the list as I get the information to me. So far we have the following sporsors Associated, BMI, EAMotorSports, Jaco, SMC, Trinity, Integy and Darkside. If you would like to purchase a ticket you can send it cash, money order, check. The tickets are $5.00 dollars each. If you would like to be a sponsor you can contact me and let me know what you would like to donate.

My home address is
Tim Donley
215 Fine St. #3
Excelsior Springs, Mo 64024
(816)-630-2889

Here is how it started and the reason for the raffle
Fellow RC Racer needs help

Hey everybody; one of our own needs a hand. Tim Donley first came to my attention because he was selling off all his RC equipment to raise money for his mother's cancer treatments. I did some checking and this is what I discovered: Tim's mother is in her third round in her fight against cancer. This is the third recurrence; and the third round of treatments. The first two rounds exhausted the family finances. Tim's dad is working seven days a week, trying to pay for his wife's treatments; but it isn't enough. Tim has helped all he can with the money end; but it still isn't enough. So, Tim is selling off all his RC stuff to try to raise money. Tim's mother is undergoing chemotherapy; and she has to have the (very expensive) treatments, or...

This is the sort of thing that can hit any of us; at any time. I'm hoping we can all pull together to try to help Tim and his mother. How? Well, Thunder Road is going to have a "benefit" race in the next couple of months; just as soon as we can arrange it. I'm going to hit up the manufacturer's; and try to get some good door prizes. And, I'll put up some decent prize money. All the proceeds from the race will be sent to Tim, to help with the medical expenses.

Tim didn't ask anyone for help. He isn't asking for anyone's charity. He was simply selling off his stuff to raise some money. But I think there are times when we all could use a little help. And I think there are some things we should all do; simply because they need to be done. So, I'm stepping up to the plate. How about giving me a hand? Thunder Road will host a benefit race; the "Sue Donley Benefit Race". Details will follow shortly. Now... Who else will step up to help? We can do some good; and have fun doing it. If you need details; contact Tim directly. Thanks; Ernie P.

Glad things are going well, Tim; but if you're moving the thread, it won't hurt to remind people why the raffle and benefit races are being organized. I'm hoping to have some more good news early next week. Thanks; Ernie P.

Default More news

Tim; I'm back from vacation, and had time to make a few calls today. **Trinity, J&D Machine (Hyperdrive), and (Gary) McAllister have signed on to support the Sue Rickman Benefit on line auction. Jason at BMI will also be sending another chassis conversion kit for the on line auction.** I'll talk to you about the details. That makes the current list of sponsors look like Associated, BMI, Darkside, EAMotorSports, Integy, Jaco, J&D Machine, McAllister, SMC and Trinity. Fastlane Hobbies and Thunder Road will be doing Sue Rickman Benefit Races. Am I forgetting any one? Let's keep the raffle ticket sales going, guys! Thanks; Ernie P.

Calling all track owners.... How many of you are willing to run a race and donate the entry fees? I will try to get one going here in Jackson, since I'm not a track owner, I can not make the comment until after I talk with the owners...

The RC3 club in Madison, AL is going to be having one on the 16th of July.

We usually only have about 20-30 cars, but everything helps in these types of situations.
