"The Motorcyle or The Money?"
The winner of the grand prize, a 2012 VROD Muscle Limited Edition Harley Davidson with 122 HP and the ability to reach speeds of 200 mph, is Frank Sullivan, a long time judge and advocate for children here in Las Vegas. Mr. Sullivan will have the option of taking $15,000 in cash instead of the motorcycle and his decision will be made on the field before the Wednesday, July 4th PCL contest between Tucson-Las Vegas at 7:05 p.m. at Cashman Field.
Fans come out and cheer him on to help him make his decision!
The runner-up and winner of a $1000 cash prize was Bill Fisher, Director of Business Development for the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce.
The bike was raffled off by Iron Eagle, a fundraising organization whose theme is "Mobilizing to Defeat Diabetes." The event was sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Eagles, who have made a commitment to raise $25 million to develop the F.O.E. Diabetes Research Center at the University of Iowa. The prizes will be presented to Mr. Sullivan and Mr. Fisher on the field before the game, on Wednesday, July 4th.
The Iron Eagle event is a spectacular world record breaking challenge ride, sanctioned by the Guiness Book of World Records. Darrell Rall, FOE Grand Trustee and CEO/National Chairman of Iron Eagle, will be riding 25,000 miles in 25 days, passing through all 49 continental states and all the Provinces of Canada as well.
He is joined in this effort by National Co-Chairs James Kimsey and Mary Anne Rutherford Kimsey.
The Las Vegas 51s would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Kimsey, Mr. Rall, the F.O.E. and the Better Business Bureau for their hard work and effort in putting such a unique, selfless event on to raise money and awareness for diabetes.
