By now you have probably heard that Dan Jung fell off a ladder while working on his home. He is currently at Froedert Hospital in Milwaukee with a fractured neck and broken collar bone. His recovery will be a long process but Dan is not one to lay down and let this get the best of him. Dan has raced at Slinger, and most other area tracks and is very actively involved in the Memorial Go-Karts at Slinger Speedway--mentoring the Orange Crush team. A fund-raiser to help with Dan's loss of income and additional expenses has been planned, here are the details:
Saturday, December 12th
5:00 p.m. to midnight
Korner Bar & Grill
Hwy. 144, Big Cedar Lake
(2 miles north of Slinger Speedway, 2 miles south of Hwy. 33)
We've had so many people ask how they can help.....here are some ways:
1) Attend the benefit!
2) Help work at the benefit, selling tickets, monitoring the silent auction, etc.
3) Donate raffle prizes
4) We are asking for interested race teams to donate a "Team Bucket". Decorate it with your team number and colors. Inside it place things that represent your team (or just things you think people would want). Ideas include:
-foods you like
-a gift certificate to have lunch WITH YOU at your favorite restaurant (or drinks at your favorite pub)
-tickets to a sporting event, movies, etc.
-handmade items (always popular!!)
Don't forget to include a team T-shirt, hat, or Speed Card!
Brats & Hamburgers - $3 each
50/50 Raffles Every Hour!
Music by DJ Al starting at 9:00
If you are interested in working or in donating a bucket, please let me know ASAP.
