Rollin' for a Cause
BLACKFOOT — Rollin for a Cause’ is rolling out all the goodies for its annual raffle and rally against Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. Hundreds of items have been donated for the cause.
There are sets of Liquid Image goggles that will be auctioned off. Their value is $250 per pair. These are the same googles that the infamous Kyle Pratt uses when he does his life-threatening rides.
A two-night stay at “The Island Inn” in Island Park that sleeps 16 has been donated by Whitney Grimmet of Outback Vacation Rentals. Its value is $400 per night. Blackfoot Brass has donated a brass doorbell that retails for $500. Other items include two full day ski passes to Grand Targhee, a one-night stay at Barton’s Club 93 in Jackpot, Nev., and a used van that will be raffled off. Tickets for these and many other items are $10 for an “arms length”, half of that for $5 or $1 a piece. Winners do not need to be present to win.
The Rollin’ for a Cause rally will proceed from Blackfoot after registration at Premier Technology’s Car and Bike Rendezvous at 10 a.m. on Saturday. The rally will then roll out with stops in Inkom, Lava Hot Springs, Pocatello and back to the Blackfoot Elks Lodge for dinner at 6 p.m.
Those with minivans, trucks, mopeds and fifth wheels are encouraged to join in the thundering of motorcycle engines as they hit the pavement in an event to change lives of those affected by Type 1 Diabetes. The ride is $10, plus $5 for an additional rider. The cost includes entry into a raffle.
Advanced ticket sales for dinner at the Elks Lodge Saturday is encouraged, $8 per adult $3 for children. Tickets can be purchased from the Elks Lodge at 785-1080 or from Susan Jensen 681-4846, Hillary Chavez 681-1841 or Colleen Morgan 870-8562. Rolling for a Cause is sure to be the largest fundraiser against Diabetes in the area.
The only question left to ask is… are you rollin’?
