Score1MasterCraft Safety to Host Drawing Party on April 24th. A full Day of Vendor Displays, Activities, and Fund-Raising!

 This year’s drawing for the world-famous SCORE Tecate Baja 500 will be held on April 24th at the new corporate headquarters of MasterCraft Safety at 9335 Stevens Road in Santee, Calif. The festivities will begin at 10am with vendor displays from area off-road businesses and the "live" SCORE Baja 500 starting position drawing will begin at 1pm.

 There will be a huge raffle and all proceeds will benefit the Castro-Limon. Foundation which provides cancer treatment for poor and orphaned children in Baja who would not normally receive treatment. Check out this worthy cause at: www.fundacioncastrolimon.org  Raffle tickets are $5.00.

If you are unable to attend the drawing party, raffle tickets can be purchased on-line at www.race-dezert.com . RDC will be your proxy raffle ticket buyer so you need not be present to win. Also, you can make credit card donations the same way or by phone to the RDC Booth on the day of the event. Watch RDC for details!

In addition to the raffle, The Locos Mocos Crew will take to the grill once again to help raise money for the Fundacion Castro-Limon. The Locos Mocos Crew will be running a Taco Stand and accepting cash donations for the best tacos this side of San Felipe. MasterCraft Safety has arranged sponsorship through Lofton Cattle and Ramey Meats and they will be paying for all the food costs - so all the proceeds will go directly to the kids. Crews from Baja Pits will also be helping to man the Taco Stand!

Since the planning for this event began, another great need has emerged due to the Easter Sunday 7.2 earthquake near Mexicali. Thousands of people lost their homes and are in desperate need of essential household items. The Mexican Government has waived import tariffs on donated goods for quake relief. What’s more, MasterCraft Safety has generously offered to match all taco stand cash donations and will be contributing proceeds to the Earthquake Fund - so every dime you contribute will not only help the cancer kids, it will be a double gift of helping earthquake victims in Mexicali.

A partial list of urgently needed relief items can be found by visiting SCORE International's website at www.score-international.com . Relief items can be brought to MasterCraft Safety the day of the drawing and there will be individuals on-hand to accept the donations and arrange for their delivery to Mexicali.

 If you have items to donate to the raffle or cash you would like to contribute, act now! All donations are tax deductible. Checks can be sent directly to "The Baja Cancer Foundation" at the address below. The Baja Cancer Foundation is a 501C3 and will funnel all the money directly to Fundacion Castro-Limon. Contributions to this cause and the Mexicali Earthquake cause will also be accepted at the event.
