Off-road superstar Destry Abbott was recently diagnosed with leukemia and the motorcycling family has responded by banding together to host a fundraiser for him on Tuesday, June 21. This event will take place at Pole Position Raceway in Corona, California, an indoor go kart track featuring high-performance electric karts as well as loads of racing memorabilia. It’s scheduled to take place from 5:00 to 10:00 P.M., with both silent and live auctions being some of the evening’s highlights.
That’s where you can help. The event is requesting items (and services) that can be auctioned off. It can be motorcycle-related, but it certainly doesn’t have to be. Among the early donations is a one-day long-distance precision rifle shooting course taught by U.S. Navy SEALs, motor home rental packages worth $1000 and much more.
Some of the companies supporting this Destry Abbott fundraiser are Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA; Kawasaki Team Green, AMA District 37, FMF Racing, the Kurt Caselli Foundation, GNCC Racing, Racer X Magazine, Dirt Bike Magazine, Dirt Rider Magazine, Cycle News, 6D Helmets, High Desert Adventures, MavTV, Lucas Oil, Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, EnduroCross, Mark Kariya Photography, Parts Magazine, ZLT Design, DJ Louie Ochoa, Corona Motorhome Rentals, JCR Honda, American Honda, Thrust Productions, IV League Flat Track, The Action Sports Show, Toyota of Escondido, Honey Stinger, Gibson Art Designs, PCI Race Radios, TBT Racing and Sidi.
Should you wish to donate any item (or service), please send to Pole Position Raceway, c/o Destry Abbott Fundraiser, 1594 E. Bentley Dr., Corona, CA 92879; phone 951-817-5032.
For those who can’t make it to this event, AMA District 37 will take any items that aren’t auctioned and sell them on eBay, again with all proceeds going to the Abbotts. In addition, there’s the GoFundMe account that was originally set up at https://www.gofundme.com/24pwufw.
