OSWEGO, NY – The Lighthouse Lanes SBS Series held their first ever fundraiser this past weekend at Lighthouse Lanes in Oswego and things were pretty successful for the series first crack at it.
Hundreds of chicken dinners were sold in support of the new club founded by Mike Bruce, which will see events at both the Evans Mills and Spencer Speedways this June with more to be added.
“Mike (Bruce) and I want to thank everyone who came out to support the series in our first fundraiser,” said series PR director Camden Proud. “It was not easy to throw it together at the last second. The Bruce family worked so very hard to put it together. I appreciate their efforts as I am just the one trying to help them promote it. If we have all of the great drivers, team owners, fans, friends and family that showed up last Friday to continue to back this series throughout the season we will be very successful. There are a lot of good things in the works and I couldn’t be any prouder of Mike Bruce’s efforts. He is a great ambassador for not just Oswego Speedway but the division as a whole.”
Bob Garafolo and Jim Eckert of ‘On the Brink’ played from 7-10pm and were a big hit as were all of the door prizes and raffle items throughout the evening.
“We have to extend a huge thanks to On the Brink for coming out and playing. They definitely made a difference in the amount of success our event had,” Proud mentioned. “The Bruce Family and myself would also like to extend our thanks to all of the businesses who generously donated to our first ever fundraiser. It would not have been possible without those guys.”
Two lotto boards, over a dozen raffle items, and many door prizes were on hand as part of the fundraiser. A full list of winners is listed below.
With a little extra support and extra funds to put a purse together for the first two shows, Bruce and Proud now look ahead to the series inaugural event on June 18 at Evans Mills Speedway.
“The fundraiser was not perfect, it could have went better, but we are satisfied with how everything went down,” Proud stated. “Mike and I feel as though we have the support we need to continue to move forward with our first two scheduled events as well as add some more later in the season. All of that starts with June 18 at Evans Mills and then June 23 at Spencer. This event helped us immensely with purse money and thanks to Route 37 Building Supply and Bruce Construction, our first event at Evans Mills will now be 50-laps and $1,000 to win. That is huge. We greatly appreciate everyone’s help in ensuring our new endeavor is a success and will see everyone at Evans Mills.”
