HOT WHEELS JOINS SEMA INSTALLATION BANQUET & GALA FUNDRAISER AS A TITLE SPONSOR

 

SEMA is proud to announce Hot Wheels® as a title sponsor for the SEMA Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser supported by DUB Magazine and presented by Advanstar.

The SEMA Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser is where outgoing Board members are recognized for their service, newly elected Board members are introduced and the newest selections for the SEMA Hall of Fame are announced.
              
Beginning this year, the event was combined with charitable fundraising activities, and proceeds from the gala will be contributed to two very worthy causes—Childhelp and the Petty Victory Junction Gang Camp. Hot Wheels is donating $25,000 worth of toys for children at both organizations as part of this fundraising effort.

“Hot Wheels has been involved with SEMA for a number of years, and as we approach our 40th Anniversary in 2008, we’re thrilled to help them in their effort to support two great causes,” said Geoff Walker, Vice President of Wheels Marketing, Mattel Brands.  “For 40 years, our cars have always showcased the most extreme examples of vehicle design and customization, and this partnership with SEMA proved to be a perfect fit for us.”

One of the fundraising activities held in conjunction with the annual banquet is the silent auction. The silent auction features a multitude of one-of-a-kind collectibles and memorabilia. Items that have already been graciously donated include a two-night stay for two couples at the Cibolo Creek Ranch in Texas, as well as passes to the Barrett-Jackson Auction.
