    Winner is responsible for pickup of mini truck.

    Truck is titled in SD.

    Proceeds will benefit Shyann Long. Shyann Long is 6 years old and has a rare syndrome called CCHS. She has had a trach since she was 1 month old and is on a ventilator which breathes for her whenever she sleeps. In August of this year she went to Denver Children’s to have a heart pacemaker implanted to prevent the high risk of sudden death associated with this syndrome. On January 11, 2010 she will be having surgery at Los Angeles Children’s Hospital that will repair her implanted breathing pacemakers and enable her to work towards getting her trach out. The money raised will help with travel expenses from SD to California and medical not covered by her insurance.

    Yup I'm in once we get some more info.
  8. Hi Guys,
    I personally know these people, I wasn't aware of the little girls condition but they have been customers of mine and have been very honest people to deal with time and again. I have no doubt that this is legitimate and will be purchasing a ticket once my paypal gets squared away. I was quite surprised when I read the post and saw who it was from, not that this would really ever come up in conversations regarding mini trucks, but it still surprised me.

    Thanks for the reply Fremontminitrucks. That really helps.

    Some pictures would be helpful too for drumming up some more ticket sales. :)
  12. Who cares if you win, i don't even plan to take possession of it if I do, if 50 bucks can help that little girl have a normal life I don't care about the truck

    Hi, thanks for all the reply's. Thanks Doug for the reference. As far as local organizations, Cammack Ranch Supply has tickets. Enning Store in Enning, SD. And Golden Veterinary Services in Milesville, SD. We live pretty much in the middle of nowhere. There is an account set up in Faith, SD at Farmers State Bank in the name of Shyann Long Benefit for the ticket sale money.

    Also, I was notified by Paypal that I cannot accept money for this as it it considered a form of gambling. So I guess I need to figure out how to delete the previous posts with paypal mentioned.

    Anyway, thanks guys, I really appreciate it.
  14. I'm to far away otherwise my dad would have himself a mini too!:D

  18. Money sent, and just so everyone knows you can use paypal so long as you choose that you are sending payment for a service. For all of you that have kids please consider helping these folks out. I know things are tight out there but if this procedure gives this little girl a chance to know a normal childhood it's worth giving up a night at Outback right?
