BELMONT, NC – August 29, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Racing 2 Cure is excited to announce the inaugural Racing 2 Cure Custom Golf Cart Raffle in partnership with Custom Golf Carts (Braselton, GA). From now till October 1, 2016 at 2pm est. you can donate $20 per a ticket online to have a chance to win a custom golf cart! All donations will help Racing 2 Cure continue the fight against cancer, one lap at a time, as well as fund the Inaugural #SpankCancer Recipient presented by Racing 2 Cure.
The 2016 Racing 2 Cure Custom Golf Cart is valued at $15,000 and features an EZGO Golf Cart with New Batteries, Pink Carbon Fiber Dashboard with Bluetooth Stereo, Marine Grade Speakers, 6″ Lift Kit, LED Ground Effects Lighting – Featuring Pink Lights, Car quality paint job with Racing 2 Cure logos, High bank Luxury Lazylife Seats, and 12″ Flat Black Custom Rims.
A portion of the proceeds from this raffle will directly impact the inaugural #SpankCancer Recipient fund which will benefit a particular individual battling cancer. This year’s #SpankCancer Recipient is Jonathan Billick who is also the CFO and Social Media Marketing Director at Custom Golf Carts. Within a few months after the initial contact with Racing 2 Cure, Jonathan received word in late March of 2016 to return to his Oncologists where he received the news that they have found traces of the cancer spreading. Surgical Biopsy has been set in order to determine the state of Jonathan’s case. Although the fear is that he has progressed into Stage 4 cancer, the final diagnosis from his oncologists has not been received yet, as they wanted to allow some time for healing before performing the procedure, due to the extensive scarred tissue from his previous procedures during the infection prior to surgery.
It is because of his hard work and dedication to help Racing 2 Cure with this raffle and for his vision of growing #SpankCancer to help more families with a partnership with Racing 2 Cure, we are proud to have named Jonathan Billick as the Inaugural #SpankCancer Recipient. We hope that with the efforts of the golf cart raffle we can take some finical stress off of Jonathan as he prepares to battle cancer again.
The raffle will conclude at Custom Golf Cart’s shop during the 2016 Petit Le Mans Race Weekend at Road Atlanta; which is located right next to the track! You will still be able to obtain tickets during the race weekend, with the drawing tentatively being held at 4pm est, with a Facebook Live broadcast. There will only be a maximum of 5,000 tickets sold. All donations for this raffle are non-tax deductible and official rules can be found here.

#SpankCancer was originally founded in August of 2014 by Mimmo Alboumeh in an effort to raise money to support of Jonathan Billick as he began his fight with cancer. In August of 2014, Jonathan was diagnosed with Stage 3C Melanoma Skin Cancer. #SpankCancer was created to raise money in order to help Jonathan with the outside costs associated with his multiple surgeries and treatment. After seven different surgeries and over 18 months of on-going chemo-therapy he was consistently out of work and unable to provide for the costs of normal day to day expenses. It was through the help of Mimmo Alboumeh and the efforts of #SpankCancer that Jonathan was able to maintain focus on the fight at hand.
