Racer Girls Fundraiser A Success

The Murray State Racer Girls Dance Team recently conducted a fund raising event called Racer-I bingo, which raised over $2,500 to help the team with expenses.

"We really appreciate all the support we received from this first-time event," said Tori Tomasino, the 2009-10 Racer Girls captain. "The money raised will significantly help our team."

The funds help the team pay for registration fees and travel to their national competition in Orlando, Fla., Jan.16-17 at Walt Disney World.

The fundraiser was a fun event called Racer-I Bingo and conducted at the MSU home football game Oct. 31.

A large grid measuring 20X20 yards was divided into 400 one-yard squares. Bingo tickets were sold for $10 each, with all tickets placed into a random drawing, which was held prior. Each of the 400 squares was assigned a ticket number.

Racer-I, which is present at all MSU home games, roamed inside the grid area during the game and the lucky winner of the contest was the ticket holder whose square received the first 'road apple' from Racer-I.

The winning square was ticket 273 and located six rows from the top and six squares from the left on the grid.

The Racer Girls perform at all home athletic events and assist with other community relation activities. To contact the Racer Girls or to assist them in their fund raising efforts, please contact Tori Tomasino at
