Live Auction Item #11 — Wishes Do Come True For Camp iHope (Value: Priceless)
You won’t find these amazing vehicles at any luxury dealerships. Why, they don’t even have electric windows or alarm systems. But for the kids at Medical City Children’s Hospital’s Camp iHope, they are the ultimate in transportation.
Camp iHope allows current and former pediatric oncology patients to be “just kids” for a week of camp activities like fishing and climbing rocks walls. The youngsters even get to bring along two siblings.
However, getting around the campgrounds can prove to be a bit wearing for some of the VIP campers. After all, fighting cancer is a tough challenge. That’s where the two customized Starwood EZ-Golf carts in the Cattle Baron’s live auction Saturday come in. They will “ensure that children recovering from treatment still get to take part in all the fun, arriving at each activity safely and comfortably.” Plus, let’s face it — how cool is it to be chauffeured around in a designer golf cart that’s outfitted with various options including a protective Kevlar body liner that is twice as strong as conventional liners and guaranteed for life against peeling, thinning, chalking and discoloration. Shoot, that’s better than the guarantee you get with a face peel.
But there’s more to this item than just the great feelings of helping the kids. The winning bidder on these charming carts will be able to customize them with their companies’ logo, the names of friends or whatever.
