Sedalia Lions Club Helps Local Kids by Smashing Stuff!
The Sedalia Lion’s Club is hosting the 5th Annual Donnie Hunter Memorial Compact Figure 8 Scramble and Tuff Truck Challenge on Saturday, September 9th, 2017.
Okay, so you’ve seen them around: Just What IS the Lions Club? I’m here to tell you! Lions are an international network of over a million men and women in 205 countries who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.
Known for working to end preventable blindness, Lions participate in a vast variety of projects important to their communities. These projects range from taking donations of used eyeglasses, taking local kids out to buy some new shoes, or providing care packages to sick kids in hospitals, or accepting donations of hearing aids for those who can’t afford them. And now, there’s a big fundraiser coming up to help make those projects possible.
Yes, indeed – it’s time to crash some vehicles! The SLC is proud to present the 5th Annual Figure 8 and Tough Truck Challenge. How does it work? Wow, you’re full of questions, aren’t you…..
Each truck runs 3 different times to get their fastest time. Whichever truck has the fastest time wins the money! The figure 8 cars run several laps around a figure 8 track with several cars on the track at the same time.. So they will hit, bang, & crash to win the race!
It’ll be held on Saturday, September 9th, 6:00 p.m. at the State Fair Arena. Admission is only $8 for adults and $5 for children. They will also be collecting donations for Hurricane Harvey victims. The club is going to match a minimum of $1,000 donation! They will be distributing ALL donations, money and goods, directly to a Lions club in Texas to ensure 100% will go to victims in need.
The cost is $25 for the entry fee (per class), $20 rider fee (figure 8 only), and $15 for Pitt Passes! But hey, I’m sure you’re just gonna go, have some snacks, and enjoy the show.
Be there or be square – which is definitely not what you want to do, you want to be figure 8 shaped. Or something. Geez, here I answered all of your questions and you’re STILL looking for reasons to come out? JUST COME WATCH THE CARS SMASH. It’s good, clean fun, already!
