New fundraiser for Llanes

A new raffle and auction fundraiser is being held for Tara Llanes, a gravity racer who was paralyzed in a crash during a race near the end of the 2007 season. Llanes is having her next surgery in November to relieve some pain.

Entries for the raffle cost US$5 and all proceeds will go directly to the Tara Llanes "Road to Recovery" Fund. Mail entries to Pinned MTB Magazine, Attn: Tara's Fundraiser, 316 West Mission Ave, Suite 117, Escondido, California, 92025 USA or send payment via Paypal to JDylanDean@cox.net with a subject of "Re: Tara's Fundraiser".

An Ebay auction will also start October 8, with both contests ending on October 18. For more information, contact Dylan Dean at 760.443.3344.

Donated items for the raffle and auction include complete bicycles, forks, Anneke Beerten's World Cup 4X leader's jersey, Andrew Neethlings 2006 4X race bike and a drawing by Haro Bikes founder Bob Haro.
