McKay NAPA Auto Parts has kicked off one of this year’s fund-raisers for children through Make-A-Wish Illinois.
This year’s $10 raffle ticket winner will receive a trio of prizes. The single package includes a Honda CRF110F Youth Off Road Motorcycle, Honda TRX90X Youth Sport ATV and a 5-by-10-foot Transport Trailer.
The youth motorcycle boasts a 109cc air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine; 15mm piston-valve carburetor; four speed with automatic clutch; effortless electric starter; four-speed transmission; curb weight 163 pounds; with a seat height of 26.3 inches. Specs on the youth ATV include 86cc air-cooled SOHC single-cylinder four-stroke engine; 15mm piston-valve carburetor; exclusive Honda automatic sport clutch; easy electric start; tough plastic bodywork; curb weight 262 pounds; and a seat height of 26 inches. The transport trailer is designed to carry both units at once.
The donation tickets are $10 each and are available at all 18 McKay NAPA Auto Parts stores in central and southwest Illinois to benefit Make-A-Wish Illinois. Both of the Hondas, and their trailer, will be on display at the McKay NAPA stores; many events throughout the company’s areas; as well as at some of the corporation’s gracious customers and supporters. The raffle tickets will be sold at their stores through the end of September; concluding at the annual McKay NAPA Auto Parts Tool and Equipment Show in Staunton on Oct. 9, where the single winning ticket will be drawn.
McKay NAPA Auto Parts has strived to raise funds annually so “wishes” can be granted to ill children surrounding their 18 Illinois stores. The “wishes” cost about $6,000 per child. The company’s total of $177,000 has been raised over a decade for Make-A Wish Illinois through tickets sales, golf benefits, customers, friends and donors. This year’s raffle tickets can be purchased at all McKay NAPA Auto Parts stores in Bethalto, Carlinville, Carlyle, Centralia, Collinsville, Edwardsville, Gillespie, Godfrey, Granite City, Greenville, Highland, Hillsboro, Jerseyville, Litchfield, Nokomis, Staunton, Virden and Wood River.
