Fans Trade Food for Tickets at Sears Point's Thanksgiving Food Drive
SONOMA, Calif. - Community members and race fans have the chance to help those in need while helping themselves to race tickets at Sears Point Raceway's "Thanksgiving Food Drive."
To help feed the needy in Sonoma County, Sears Point is partnering with Friends In Sonoma Helping (FISH) to collect non-perishable food items. Everyone is encouraged to bring food items to the raceway during regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.) from October 15 - November 16. Items can be dropped in bins located in the main office. People can also mail in the food items to: Diana Rose, Sears Point Raceway, Highways 37 and 121, Sonoma, CA, 95476.
As a reward for their generosity, those who donate three or more food items will receive a free ticket to the American Motorcyclist Association Superbike qualifying on Saturday, May 4. To receive your ticket voucher, simply present a photo ID with your non-perishable food items to the employee at the front desk. Only two tickets allowed per family.
FISH of Sonoma Valley works to provide emergency and temporary assistance to Sonoma Valley residents experiencing times of need. In 2000, FISH supplied 1,853 households with three days of groceries, and over 2,500 calls for food requests continue to come in each year.
