Jonah Street's 2012 Send-Off Party & AuctionNov 21, 2011
On Thursday, November 17th Touratech-USA hosted the second annual Jonah Street Send-Off Party & Auction.
More than 200 people came out to support Jonah and his 2012 Dakar Rally effort, purchasing raffle tickets and bidding on items available in the silent auction.
Jonah had his new fuel-injected Yamaha YZ450F on display. He and his father have spent countless hours putting the bike together in preparation for this year's race.
The bike features a custom made rally fairing that Jonah and his father designed, as well as Safari fuel tanks that hold 9.5 gallons of race gas.
Thanks to generous contributions from numerous companies and the support of his fans, we were able to raise $7,600 for Jonah's 2012 race fund!
In addition to the silent auction and raffle, attendees were able to ask Jonah questions about the Dakar Rally, his new YZ450F and how he's preparing for this year's race.
There were more than 30 items available at auction, as well as dozens of rafffle prizes.
A delicious dinner, as well as beer, wine and soda was provided for all of those in attendance. It's safe to say that everyone came back for seconds!
To show their support for Jonah, numerous people purchased both the Jonah Street 2012 Rally T-Shirt, as well as the Riff Raff Extreme Package which includes this limited edition KLiM Inferno Jacket!
This adventure ready 2012 Ducati Multistrada was on display courtesy of Ducati Seattle. Additionally, they have agreed to donate $1,000 towards Jonah's race effort as soon as this bike sells!
A night filled with fun, friends and good food, we'd like to thank everyone that came out to support Jonah and his 2012 Dakar Rally effort!
Additionally, we'd like to thank Within Sodo for allowing us to use their fabulous space for this year's party!
