Racing for Veterans. Two miniature/model race car events were held the weekend of 1-2 March 15, The race on Saturday, 1 March was at Etters in the Bumps and Jumps Raceway. The second, Sunday, 2 March, which PVF Chairman Mike Gould attended and spoke at, was at the Hidden Hanger in Harrisburg. After he spoke, Chairman Gould did the honors of drawing the 50-50 raffle ticket. The family that won immediately came to Chairman Gould with their winnings and stated "we don't need this" with the unsaid understanding that our cause needs it more. It was very moving. The two day event will take proceeds from entries and the raffles to give a donation to the PA Veterans Foundation. Their goal is $2,000. This is their second year of MJR partnering with us, and we look forward to maintaining this benefit for our cause.
