Fireballed! joins John Wayne Cancer Institute and Joy Ride

Torrance, CA. (March 17, 2007)

Extreme Tuner, Fireballed! Racing has joined with several high-level charity groups to support Cancer Research and expand Katrina Relief.

The John Wayne Cancer Institute, Joy Ride Rally and the Southern California BMW/MINI Dealership headed by General Manager, Peter Boesen have all sought out Fireballed! for it’s design expertise. Headed by CEO Movie Car Designer Fireball Tim Lawrence, the company is supporting the two April events with gusto.

The John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary’s Odyssey Ball at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on April 14th, honoring Joyce Green for her passionate commitment and devotion to cancer research, and the Joy Ride Rally, an Exotic Car Rally traversing 2000 miles to New Orleans to support Katrina victims.

“I am not only proud to be associated with this amazing mastermind of people,” explains Fireball Tim, “I am humbled by their efforts to raise awareness for a disease and disaster that has taken far too many.”

South Bay MINI has graciously donated one of Fireball Tim’s extraordinarily designed MINIs to the Odyssey Ball charity event to help raise funds for cancer research. 100% of all proceeds are going to the Institute. The mini is a vehicle that not only will turn heads on the street, but will remind the winner of the importance for which it stands.

“The creativity of Fireball Tim’s organization, and the progressive research done at the John Wayne Cancer Institute, is a true union of passion,” says Craig Eisenberg. “We are sure to see a cure for cancer in our generation.”

The Joy Ride Rally Car Show will be taking place on the Santa Monica pier, April 21st. An event for more than just the admiration of beautiful machines, it gives $1000K to the Salvation Army for each Rally entrant. Once again, all for Katrina Relief.
