The Altus community is invited out to Altus Motorsports from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m July 30 to get involved with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital charity event.
Altus Motorsports hosts three events annually to raise money for charity and in the past has raised more than $3,000 for St. Jude’s.
The bike show will kick off the event at 8:30 a.m. and will run until 10 a.m. Anybody interested in registering a bike need only pay $10 to do so.
If one feels like getting his or her hands dirty, Altus Motorsports will be hosting a car wash from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers are always welcome as are donations. Anybody wishing to get out and help or donate should contact Altus Motorsports.
As the car wash gets underway so will the silent auction where there are plenty of awesome things up for grabs.
Altus Motorsports has received many donations from local businesses looking to add their contribution to the money raising efforts for this cause. Donations have come flooding in from Heritage Park Theatres, Friendship Inn Restaurant, Stacey Kiley with doTERRA, Wendy Kiley with Avon, Misty Litton and Ray Alcorta with Better Bodies Day Spa, Stand Strong Fitness, Just Brew It, Scott Brown with Zep Superior Solutions, Heavenly Treats and more.
At 10 a.m., the poker run will get started from the Altus Motorsports parking lot and take participants to different checkpoints where each participant must grab a playing card. Once participants have the correct number of playing cards, they will return to Altus Motorsports and whoever has the best hand will win. There is a registration fee for each rider and passenger. For more information on the fee, contact Altus Motorsports.
The food trucks will be set up and running from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature Just Like Mama’s, Diamond T and Little Thaiger.
Just Like Mama’s offers up a Philly cheesesteak sandwich, home-style burger, old fashioned fried onion burger and more.
Diamond T offers ribeye steak sandwiches, loaded fries, lobster rolls and flattop pizzas.
Little Thaiger serves delicious Thai food with items like chicken stick with peanut sauce, coconut smoothies, monkey bread and deep fried pork.
Although the food trucks are sure to be delicious, Val’s is donating tacos for the taco eating contest beginning at noon.
There is a $10 registration fee for anybody wanting to take part and wonderful prizes for the person who eats the most tacos in three minutes.
The winner will receive an Altus Motorsports T-shirt, St. Jude’s Nike ball cap and all the free tacos they can eat on Taco Tuesday at Val’s for the entire month of August.
Finally, there is a raffle going on for three handmade crocheted blankets. The tickets are currently on sale and will continue to be on sale through 2:30 p.m. July 30 at $1 per chance.
