The Abby Lou Foundation announced today that it will hold it's second annual fund raiser. Those interested in assisting the foundation may log onto www.abbylou.org and purchase a chance to win a deluxe home entertainment system. Tickets are just $10 each and there will only be 500 sold with the drawing to held 12/15/2006. The Home Entertainment System includes a 42" Plasma Television, a Sony 5 DVD 1,000 watt home theater system and a one year subscription to Dish Network. It would make the perfect Christmas gift.
The purpose of the Abby Lou Foundation is to lend a helping hand to families in paying their medical expenses associated with their childâ€™s disability. We accept applications and upon approval we contact the families and discuss what the foundation can provide to them. In some cases the Abby Lou Foundation pays 100% of their expenses. Applications are reviewed upon the family's current insurance coverage and financial situation. Even if a family has insurance they are still eligible as the costs of deductibles and co-pays can be astronomical.
We had a tremendous amount of support last year from everyone with the Chopper, said founder Paul Joiner. We were able to help several families and want to be able to do that again this year. The Sprint car racing community has welcomed us with open arms and we thank them as well as all the drivers and teams that have generously lent us their time and gifts. Thank you in advance and good luck to all those that donate to our foundation and we look forward to seeing the fans beginning in February in Volusia for the World of Outlaws season opener. If you wish to purchase a ticket you may do so at www.abbylou.org or just make a donation. You can also mail a check or money order to the address on the site.
