Trucker Charity Inc, JRBM Fund and Operation Roger are kicking off "The Magoo Challenge" Fundraiser
The Infamous "Mr Magoo" of The Trucking Bozo show fame has issued a challenge to all his fellow truck drivers. "Try and get me in a dress!" He doesn't believe his fellow drivers can raise enough money to have him trance around in a dress all day on the Friday of the Mid America Truck Show in 2013 as well as Papa John's parking lot on Friday night.
Magoo's challenge will benefit 3 charities evenly, Trucker charity @ www.truckercharity.org, JRBM Fund @ www.jrbmfund.org and Operation Roger @ http://operationroger.rescuegroups.org/. Monies donated to Operation Roger will be in Loving Memory of "Puppy" Rusty and Mary's beloved companion and "Lillie" Lance and Kacie Wood's beloved side kick who both left us and went to Doggy Heaven earlier this year.
Okay, so you're asking yourself what is this all about, right? Well on a conference call drivers who represent these groups were all joking around, somehow someone started thinking of Magoo in a dress. Of course Magoo said he'd never be caught in a dress unless there was money involved. Well we all started throwing out money figures and wild ideas on how to dress him up.
Magoo finally said "If you were to come up with $5,000 to divide among the various charities I'd do it, but that's never going to happen, so you'll never be seeing me in a dress".
Each of these charities is always trying to come up with fun and interesting ideas to raise the needed funds for their operations, they're all donation driven.
Without the help of their brothers in trucking and the vendors that support their organizations they wouldn't be able to do what they do. There is an enormous need for each of their services.
What better way to raise funds, instill the brotherhood and comradery of trucking and have some fun than to have Magoo dressed up in full gala on the Friday of next year's Mid America Truck show??? We can't think of one better!
Imagine seeing Magoo prancing around the truck show in one of the above dresses, a fruit bowl hat and big feather plumes! The looks he's going to get are going to be priceless. The attention garnered for the goals of each of the charities will also be in the lime light. The groups also know there are a few of you out there in the trucking world that need to get even with Ol' Magoo, now's your chance!!
So join the fun and help 3 very worthy causes while you're at it.
