Foose-Inspired WD-40/SEMA Cares Ford F-150 Up for Raffle
The WD-40/SEMA Cares Foose Ford F-150, a collaboration between SEMA manufacturing members, the SEMA Garage—Industry Innovations Center and students from the Alex Xydias Center for Automotive Arts (AXC), is available for auction. Raffle tickets are $50.
The Foose-inspired truck is the first vehicle to be built inside the new SEMA Garage—a facility where SEMA members can test and prototype parts, try its 3D modeling and printing and use its full-scale photo studio. Through a partnership with AXC, leading SEMA manufacturers worked alongside underprivileged teens and young adults to install parts and equipment on the F-150.
Proceeds from the truck raffle will benefit three SEMA Cares charities: the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, which is dedicated to fostering the next generation of automotive leaders and innovators; Childhelp, an organization that provides services to abused and neglected children; and Victory Junction, an organization that provides life-changing camping experiences to special needs and chronically ill children.
The enhanced ’13 Ford F-150 Lariat will be raffled off to one lucky winner in the spring of 2014. This is the sixth vehicle that WD-40 Co. and SEMA Cares have teamed up to build and the fourth vehicle that Chip Foose has designed with them. To date, WD-40/SEMA Cares vehicles have raised more than $575,000 for SEMA Cares charities.
