You never know where your connection with Astonished! will take you. Have you ever been to a drift race? While she was a student at the University of Regina, Kaylah Zahara, Drop Dead Drift Team Manager, was introduced to Astonished! by A! Student Researcher Avery Ottenbreit.
Recently Kaylah came to us with the proposal that the Drop Dead Drift Corporation hold a fundraiser for Astonished! on Sunday, July 26, 2015.
Drop Dead Drift has two pro-am drivers who complete in the Spec-D Series in Edmonton, Alberta. They take cars around corners at close to 100 km/hr sideway! It is exhilarating to watch and to go for a ride! Drop Dead Drift Corp has numerous events at Kings Park Speedway throughout the summer. Be sure to check them out on Facebook.
Drop Dead Drift Corp will be accepting Donations for Astonished! at the gate. Donations of $15.00 and above are eligible for a tax receipt. Proceeds from the day will go to Astonished! Kings Park Speedway is about 10 km northeast of Regina, on Inland Drive, just north of the Tor Hill and Murray Golf Courses (click link for map). Gates open at 11 am. The day ends when the drivers run out of tires!!! Gate Fee: $10.00/person 10 and under free!
If this seems like an event you want to experience come join us.
