Actress Eva Longoria has been appointed as Honorary Chair for the Rally For Children With Cancer.
This exciting event will be taking place in Los Angeles on May 1st and 2nd, 2009, and will also be launched across North America throughout the year.
All participating Rally Drivers will fundraise a minimum of $25,000 each to qualify and draft their Celebrity Navigator. The higher the funds raised, the better draft position earned. This event will feature several well-known Celebrities and attract huge media attention.
The rally will benefit Children's Hospital Los Angeles and Padres Contra el Cancer, and Eva Longoria has stepped up to support its efforts to help those in need. Not only will she act as Honorary Chair, but she will also act as navigator for one of the rally drivers. Other celebrity navigators include Mario Lopez, Shannon Tweed, Stephen Baldwin, Terrence Howard, Valerie Cruz, William Baldwin, Zachary Levi, Julie Benz, James Kyson Lee and many more.
Rally for Kids with Cancer will kick off with “The Qualifiers” Celebrity Draft Party on May 1. This cocktail reception provides Rally Drivers with the opportunity to meet and recruit their desired Celebrity Navigator. The premium drafting positions will be determined by the amount of dollars raised through pledges and sponsorship. The top fundraisers will have first choice in the selection process. Remaining positions will be randomly drawn from among the Celebrity Navigators not yet drafted.
Fuelled by an extraordinary schedule of Pit Stops at some of the most exclusive establishments and venues in the city, Saturday May 2 will see Rally Drivers and Celebrity Navigators will embark on a journey from one clue to the next.
Fun and innovation are the call of the day. The skills participants require to be part of the winning team include power of observation, the ability to read a map and figure out challenging clues, and of course, a true love of driving. Scores are determined by a combination of successfully completed tasks and the accumulation of assigned points. Thinking fast, not driving fast, gets you across the “Finish Line”.
