Thought I would write a short thread after VoodooBoss asked how much the Auction at the Mustang Roundup raised? The Auction has been part of the event since year one as one of the ways Woodhouse Auto Family can give back to the communities in the States of Nebraska and Iowa ( Western Iowa to be specific). Unbelievably over 90,000 children are food depraved here in the breadbasket of the US. Crazy, I know, but true , so the Auction benefits the " Backpack Program," which enables schools to put food in the backpack of said children, each Friday, so they have something to eat over the weekend. Woodhouse traditionally helps raise well over a million dollars for these children and over the past 9 years the folks at the Roundup have helped raise over $20,000. Pretty impressive since the majority of the Drivers are not from either Nebraska or Iowa. Definitely shows you what a quality set of racers come to this Racing Event! With over 1/2 of the participants on this Forum , it tells you what stellar enthusiasts are on TMO. I am still waiting for some checks to come in , but when they arrive, we should be over $2000! Special thanks need to go to the following, as they contributed items on their own as they believe in the benefit these gifts can do for a hungry child. Todd Soderquist, Bart Marowelli and the great folks at Ford Motor Company - they brought so many things the list would be endless Tracy Munday and his Lifted Spirit donations The " Madhatter" for his Chilean Race Posters Woodhouse Ford ( all three Stores ) donated numerous items The VoodooBoss contributed TMO Shirts - the proper GQ attire for the fast racer Most of all I would like to thank my fellow racers and Car Show participants who generously gave with their hearts and continue to year in and year out at each Mustang Roundup. Thanks , thanks , thanks, and it is a pleasure to call all of you friends first and competitors second.
