The Great LGT Fundraiser 2007!!!


Recommended Posts

It's that time of year again!!!! For the past 3 years LegacyGT.com has hosted a fundraiser for charities in need.


This year we are raising funds for the "Make a Wish Foundation" and we hope to raise over $4000.00!!!!!!!



Year one: We raised over $1400.00


Year two: We raised $3170.00 (Red Cross)



Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has given hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. From our humble beginnings with one boy’s wish to be a police officer, we’ve evolved into an organization that grants a child’s wish in the U.S. every 41 minutes."


In 1980, 7-year-old Chris Greicius was being treated for leukemia. Every day, he dreamed of becoming a police officer.

U.S. Customs Officer Tommy Austin had befriended Chris and his mother, Linda Bergendahl-Pauling. He also promised Chris a ride in a police helicopter. When Chris’ health worsened, Austin contacted Ron Cox, an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer, and planned a day that would lift Chris’ spirits.

On April 29, 1980, Austin and a caring group of DPS personnel started Chris’ day with a tour of the city in a department helicopter, which also flew him to headquarters. Three cruisers and a motorcycle officer greeted him before his meeting with the DPS command staff. There, Chris was sworn in as the first honorary DPS patrolman in state history.

But his experience didn’t stop there. Cox contacted John’s Uniforms, which agreed to make a custom-tailored DPS uniform for Chris. The store owner and two seamstresses worked through the night to finish it. The officers presented the official uniform to Chris on May 1 and arranged a motorcycle proficiency test so he could earn wings to pin on his uniform. Needless to say, Chris passed the test with flying colors on his battery-operated motorcycle.


On May 2, Chris was back in the hospital. He asked to arrange the room so he could always see his uniform, his motorcycle helmet and his “Smokey Bear”-style campaign hat. DPS motor officer Frank Shankwitz presented Chris with his motorcycle wings. He accepted them with a smile that lit up the room.


The following day, Chris passed away, but not before seeing his dream come true and experiencing the hope, strength and joy that came from receiving his wish.


This has made my day to see that the money is going to make a wish. My brother got a make a wish ten years ago when he was sick. The people couldn't have been nicer and they worked really hard to grant the wish of a kid who had been through biopsies, spinal taps, chemotherapy, radiation. They were really great ...and now Im tearing up.


Every last penny that is donated here will go to the Make a Wish Foundation.


We are accepting donations in any amount, and to keep with past tradition anyone who makes a donation will entered into a raffle for some great prizes supplied by one of our generous vendors!!!

This is usually how its done, the first year it was BD, myself and a few others, last year, BD, PGT and others, this year guess who again BD and others. Its kinda a pain for us to get a tax exempt and "charity" PP acct. Trust us we're doing this for the kids and no one, I repeat no one is getting scammed.

JDM'd All to hell


Thanks Jimmy @ Hkc-Speed.com!

RIP Coxx & Thanks
