Wow. We did it. YOU did it!
We pulled it off and the dust is finally starting to settle in the aftermath of the MMRacing End of Season Party to support the Amy D. Foundation. We're thrilled with how the event went and we are grateful for your support.
Before we announce our contribution to the Amy D. Foundation we would like to ask each an every one of you to take a look at the list below and recognize how much incredible support we received. To show your appreciation for the FIFTY EIGHT different sponsors and contributors, please do at least one of the following things:
Thank them for their support! Show them how psyched you are about your prize and their contribution with a tweet, a photo, a post on Facebook, a phone call, a hug, a high five, or any combination of the above. Use the #MMRacingESP hashtag when you post.
- Buy something from them at your local bikeshop, grocery store, visit their brick and mortar store or their website to learn more about them.
- Pay it forward! Just go out and do something nice for someone.

Nest up, is the list of winners of the prizes listed on the BikeReg page (and a few more last minute addtions for good measure)! On the night of the drawing, we walked around the party and had about 50 guests mix the cards up in a Pedro's Mini Pit Kit to ensure a good and unbiased shuffling. Our friend Janice had the dubious distinction of pulling the winners all night. Winners have been contacted by email or were at the party and received their prizes or details on how to receive them in person.

And now for the most important part! The fundraising total! We have put a number of fundraising events on in the past and this was by far our biggest one yet. After discussing raffle item costs, party expenses, service charges for the online portion of the raffle and making our best guess on ticket sales, we hoped we would meet our inital goal of $10,000.
We are thrilled to announce that we have surpassed the $15,000 mark. We spoke with Amy's brother, Dan Dombroski last night and needless to say, he was speechless. We are so grateful that we could help get the foundation up and running. And we are honored and humbled by the support we received from our friends, families, sponsors, fans and Amy D supporters.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this amazing night happen. With gratitude and much love,
Mo & Matt
