ASHLEY CUP 2 OFFICIAL VIDEO

When my daughter Ashley passed away in a car accident i was devastated. Now i can carry on her tradition of holding fundraisers for st jude childrens research hospital and honor my daughter by donating all of the proceeds from the event in her name. This year we had 103 race entries, approx 400 people in attendance( including to local tv news stations) and we raised over $6,400 for St Judes. in the first 2 years of this now annual event we have raised almost $14,000 for childhood cancer research and helped children with cancer.

Buckle your seatbelts and put your tray tables up, this is a high flying ground ripping andrenaline pumped video….after you get passed the original story and national anthem

TURN UP THE VOLUME AND ENJOY!!!

ASHLEY CUP 2 RAISES $6,400 FOR ST JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL

ANNOUNCEMENT:

I am happy to announce that the total money raised by the Ashley Cup 2 Event for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital was $6,400. The total compared to last years event was lower, but the event itself blew last year out of the water.AGAIN I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU TO ALL 55 OF THE SPONSORS…..WITHOUT YOU THERE WOULD BE NO EVENT! FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF SPONSORS CLICK HERE    http://ashleycup.com/sponsors/  MY friend Suzanne Harper ( one of 5 finalists in the Texaco Country Showdown national contest)  was nice enough to come out and sing the national anthem for us….SHE WAS AWESOME!   CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO

SATURDAY We had 103 race entries ( only a couple of people raced a 2nd class where as at the 1st event most people ran a 2nd class) and approx 400 at the event. We had sponsor goodies to give away, a drawing every hour for registered drivers who won great sponsor prizes and the opportunity drawing. JAMBA JUICE was there most of the day selling smoothies to everyone and COCA-COLA donated 25 cases of soda and water to the event. Rock racing was going on all day. We brought in the 8th scales with a great 8th scale turnout. We had local news 8 and KUSI news come out on saturday.  They both aired a story about the event on TV. Channel 8 has given me permission to use their aired footage in the video i am working on of the event and i am still working with KUSI to get permission to use theirs. We had so much product from sponsors that when a few guys broke down we are able to donate parts for them to keep racing.podium pics can be found on our facebook page and soon on the ashley cup website. Race Results can be found HERE  ( click on link and scroll to heritage rc park)

SUNDAY we had a low turnout compared to Saturday but for the people that were there ….WE HAD A TON OF FUN.  We did a balloon race, a powder puff, run what you brung and a 5th scale balloon race. ( footage will be in video)   We had some great sponsor prizes for the winners of those races.  We had another box of sponsor goodies to hand out for free  and had some great prizes in the opprtunity drawing.

OVER ALL…..EVERYONE HAD A GREAT TIME.  THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT TO SUPPORT THE CAUSE ( IT REALLY MEANS ALOT TO ME) AND I APPRECIATE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. IT REALLY MAKES ME PROUD TO BE A PART OF THIS GREAT COMMUNITY WE CALL THE RC WORLD. I LOOK FORWARD TO DOING IT ALL AGAIN EXT YEAR!
