Would you like to own your own racecar? Lemons of Love is offering that opportunity in a giveaway that will help brighten the lives of those going through chemotherapy.
From now until March 17 – the Mobil1 Twelve Hours of Sebring – entrants can purchase tickets for $100 per entry, helping Lemons of Love as it looks to reach and surpass its $250,000 goal. The grand prize is a brand-new Mazda Global MX-5 Cup car, one of the most versatile racecars in the country, courtesy of Long Road Racing.
Lemons of Love is also giving the winning ticket holder a F.A.S.T. driver cooling system, a season-long supply of Pagid Brakes, PRO Series Model Bell helmet, G-Force 745 driver’s suit, Battery Tender charger, a subscription to RACER Magazine and more. RACER has also donated an additional subscription.
The winner will be chosen at the Mobil1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. The winner does not need to be present to win.
Lemons of Love is a nonprofit organization founded by Fresh Air Systems Technologies (F.A.S.T.) owner Jill Swanson Peltier, a cancer fighter from Des Plaines, Illinois. Diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer in 2014, Peltier put a positive spin on an old saying: “When life gives you lemons – laugh out loud.”
LOL bags are handmade by volunteer stitchers and feature special products that are essential to those going through treatments, including body lotion, old-fashioned lemon drops (to lessen the associated metallic taste of the treatment), dark chocolate acai, ginger tea, socks, a water bottle and additional items based on exclusive donations.
According to the organization: “Our lemon tree is growing so quick and we look forward to branching into new hospitals and oncology centers over the next year. We doubled our growth and deliveries between our second and third year and this will help us do the same as we enter our fourth year of giving back.”
