Help needed - Speed to Feed event Sun 5/26 at Loco Patron

Brothers,
               We need 6 – 8 volunteers (Knights and/or Knights w/families)  from 2:00 PM until about 6:30 PM or parts therein to assist with various functions at our first ever "Speed to Feed" event to raise money for St. Mary's Food Bank.  The event is being held at Loco Patron which is located on the SE corner of Desert Foothill Parkway and Chandler Blvd (behind the Walgreens). The address is 1327 E. Chandler Blvd, Phoenix, AZ 85048, phone: 480-460-8887.
 
               This event will be held during the NASCAR race – Coca Cola 600.  The race begins at 3:00 PM.  We need help in the following ways:
 
3 – 4 people to handle 50/50 ticket sales – unique drawing after each 100 laps
2 – 3 to handle race winners (First 3 places) / lap winner ticket sales – drawing after each 100 laps for car/driver currently in 1st place
1 – 2 people to oversee ticket / race car bag placement/security
 
               What this all means will be explained, and rule sheets and rules flyers will be made available. 
 
               FYI, our council is on the hook for $500 in prizes for the first 3 place winners, so we need help to ensure we at least cover our costs on this maiden charity drive voyage.  If we at least break even, we can venture into a more standardized schedule for this kind of event in the future.  However, we would like to turn a nice sized check over to St. Mary's Food Bank as a result of this effort.
 
               If available, please come to help…BUT IF NOT AVAILABLE TO HELP, COME WITH THE FAMILY FOR FUN AND GOOD FOOD…ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN TO LOCO PATRON EVER, OR RECENTLY.  FYI – Loco Patron is owned by 2 Brother Knights, has very good food and a very friendly and accommodating staff.
 
Vivat Jesus,
