Yamaha Auctioning Cal Crutchlow’s Leathers To Benefit Oklahoma Relief Fund
The terrible events that occurred in Oklahoma were tragic. To help with the rebuilding efforts, Yamaha is auctioning off a pair of Cal Crutchlow’s leathers, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Feed The Children. FTC’s aim is to provide food, medicine, clothing and other necessities to families who lack these essentials due to war, poverty, famine, or natural disasters.
In addition to Cal’s leathers, the winning bidder will receive a pair of weekend three-day general admission passes, including paddock access, to the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, July 19-21 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, along with hotel accommodations in the Monterey area for the entire race weekend (Friday and Saturday night).
And, as an added bonus, the winning bidder will be invited up on stage Saturday evening during the scheduled, GE-sponsored concert ceremonies where Cal will present the personally autographed leathers to the lucky fan who wins the auction.
The auction is live on eBay right now, and will continue until June 11. Click here to place your bid.
