Bo­gans al­most ready to raise dust

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

THE Car 66 Bo­gans are all signed up for the Great En­deav­our Rally – lit­er­ally.

The iconic blue HR has had a make over with its spon­sor­ship sig­nage ahead of the fundrais­ing race in July.

The race raises funds for the En­deav­our Foun­da­tion which pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple with dis­abil­ity.

The sig­nage and labour, ap­prox­i­mately $2500 worth, was do­nated free of charge by lo­cal com­pany An­gel Signs.

“It’s a good cause and it’s en­joy­able to do,” An­gel Signs owner Jay An­gel said.

“I’ve done flags and all that kind of stuff for them as well.”

Car 66 Bo­gan Rob ‘ RobBob’ Wil­son said the do­na­tion was hugely ap­pre­ci­ated.

“All the money we raise out of the raf­fles and dona­tions, that goes di­rectly to the En­deav­our Foun­da­tion,” he said.

“So hav­ing it done for noth­ing is awe­some and it’s come up a treat too.”

Mr Wil­son said Mr An­gel had had no reser­va­tions about help­ing out.

“I came down here and saw them and they jumped on­board more than will­ingly,” he said.

Mr An­gel said it was a good busi­ness de­ci­sion, as well as a kind hearted one as he would “get a bit of ad­ver­tis­ing out of it as well, es­pe­cially be­cause this trip comes to Air­lie Beach”.

The car will be cruis­ing the streets of the Whit­sun­days for the next few months, show­ing off its new look.

“You won’t be able to help but no­tice us, it’s not just the blue HR any­more,” Mr Wil­son said.

The car will then head down to Gympie, where the car’s own­ers are based, to be out­fit­ted with even more sig­nage.

“When the car goes back [to Gympie] there’s go­ing to be sig­nage on the roof racks and that’ll advertise the guys from Gympie,” Mr Wil­son said.

Dona­tions have now reached more than $12,500 thanks to the hard work of the Bo­gans team, “rais­ing dust and dol­lars” for a good cause.
