The 3rd Annual MotoDoffo Event to Benefit the Kurt Caselli Foundation, presented by SCORE International, is in the books. Thanks to contributions from event sponsors and attendees more than $32,000 was raised for the Foundation and their mission to improve off-road safety.
Gates opened at 10am to a rush of excited Caselli fans, ready to spend the day celebrating motorcycling and raising money for the foundation. Guests perused the vast display of motorcycles, talked to vendors, and were wowed by performances by Red Bull Trials Champion Geoff Aaron.
The food and Doffo wine were flowing as special items from event sponsors were raffled off. Then came time for the live auction and the big ticket items. The crowd watched with excitement as a Kurt Caselli jersey signed by members of the Foundation, a limited edition Kurt Caselli tribute wine, and other items were auctioned off to the highest bidders.
The $32,000 in funds raised for the Foundation is double the amount raised at the 2015 event, a testament to the growing popularity of the event and increasing awareness of the Foundation. The funds raised came from ticket sales, event sponsorship fees, raffle and auction proceeds, and direct donations made to the Foundation at the event. A portion of the proceeds from Doffo’s tribute wines will be donated to the Foundation as well.
“We are so happy that the event was such a huge success for the Kurt Caselli Foundation,” said Doffo Winemaker and General Manager, Damian Doffo. “It’s an honor to work with everyone at the Foundation to help carry on Kurt’s legacy and make off-road racing and riding safer for future generations.”
