Best Friends Animal Society

ROANOKE, VIRGINIA (Roanoke Times) - If you are a NASCAR fan, support the work of Best Friends Animal Society and have yet to purchase tickets for the 2009 Allstate 400 at the Brickyard, then the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has an offer that may appeal to you.

The track in my hometown in the Hoosier state has donated a luxury package as a fundraiser for the non-profit, no-kill animal sanctuary in Utah. Online bids will be accepted until 5 p.m. EST tomorrow.

The package includes:

·Four tickets in a luxury suite for the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard on Sunday, July 26

·Two rooms for July 24 to 26 at the Staybridge Suites in downtown Indianapolis (rooms are one bedroom suites with one king size bed and one sofa sleeper)

·A police escort in your vehicle on race morning from the motel to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (if you have ever been to the track on a race day, you can appreciate the value of this)

·Credentials for access to the pits and garage area for all three days and the action on race morning (you must be at least 18 years old)

The minimum bid is $500. Place a private bid to: jennifer@bestfriends.org.

Winners will be notified by e-mail and the package is non-transferable. (To my hubby who reads this blog and is a dedicated NASCAR fan: Sorry honey, no. I did not make a bid. Love you!)

Best Friends Animal Society is located in Angel Canyon, Utah, and is home to 2,000 animals, most with special physical needs or behavioral problems. Best Friends took in 22 of the dogs rescued from Michael Vick's dog fighting operation and is the subject of the National Geographic Channel's documentary series "DogTown."
