Off-road Firms Unite Behind Tsunami Relief with Charity Raffle

Attention: Automotive Editor, Business/Financial Editor, City Editor, Lifestyle Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor EDMONTON, AB AND SIDNEY, BC--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 12, 2005) - The horrific images captured and disseminated in the aftermath of the earthquake and subsequent tsunamis in Asia have saddened and affected so many of us. Never in our lives have we witnessed devastation on such a large scale.

Fortunately, people from around the world have been stepping up to the challenge of providing aid in various forms. Here in Canada there has been a tremendous outpouring of support.

To date we have yet to see a collective response from the sizable off-road community-a group of individuals that we know to be a very responsible, caring, and giving community.

Mark and Dana Nault, founders of Rover Park Boys Ltd. in Edmonton AB, together with support from Hannibal Safari Equipment (Canada) Ltd, and The Great Canadian Expedition Company Ltd., have organised a raffle on behalf of the Canadian Red Cross and their Asia Earthquake and Tsunamis Relief appeal.

Rover Park Boys have generously donated a 1961 Land Rover 109 Series II project vehicle to be raffled off as part of this fund raising effort. Additional prizes of a Hannibal 1.4 metre roof tent, Zodi tent heater, and soft "kit bags" will also be offered. Total value of prizes on offer is estimated at $4,000.00.

Tickets are available for $10.00. The drawing will take place on March 1, 2005, 12:00 PST.
