TRSF Hunter Whitley BenefitTuesday, November 14, 2006 | 1:59 PM
November 2, 2006 (Wortham, Texas) - The Texas Rider Support Foundation (TRSF) and Freestone County Raceway have joined together to conduct a benefit for Hunter Whitley of the Lufkin, Texas area. Hunter is son of former AMA Pro and current manager for a Kawasaki satellite team in AMA SX/MX, Billy Whitley. The benefit will be in conjunction with the AMA Texas State Motocross Championship, November 17-19, 2006.
Hunter Whitley suffered a spinal injury earlier this year and was left with little to no movement below his chest. Since his injury, the insurance has capped and now help is needed for an extended motocross family. The latest update shows far more positive signs as Hunter has regained slight movement in his hips and feeling in his feet.
"The AMA Texas State Championship is the perfect venue to help the Whitley family" said TRSF VP, Jennifer Mallozzi. "We will have full concessions at Freestone for the entire weekend with 100% of the proceeds going to the cause."
Activities include but not limited to:
TRSF Concessions - 100% of the profit
TRSF T-Shirts sales
TRSF Live or Silent Auction
TRSF Sticker sales
Freestone $1 Race Entry donation
The menu is going to be great so don't be afraid to eat out for a good cause. The menu includes but not limited to: Lunch and dinner offering such items as Sliced Brisket, Smoked Chicken, Sausage Wraps, Hot Dogs and Hamburgers. Assorted breakfast taco's will be the order each morning. A wide selection of beverages, chips, banana's and apples. For a full menu selection, go to the TRSF link below. Additionally, auction items are coming in every day from top AMA Pro riders such as Kevin Windham, Chad Reed and other to be confirmed on the TRSF web site. Other items up for bidding include a Thumper Pit Bike, items from MOOSE and loads of other goodies.
The TRSF is looking for volunteers, sponsors of wholesale foods, etc ...... anything to keep the overhead down and the amount of profit up for Hunter.
