This week’s RV Show in Pasadena has an unusual star: For the first time, an RV dealer and manufacturer have teamed up in an effort to support a worthy charity.
According to RV News Service, the manufacturer, Eclipse Recreational Vehicles Inc., and the dealer, McMahon’s RV, are raffling off a 2012 Milan travel trailer and all proceeds will go to support the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHCO).
The campaign slogan, “Your $1 Can Win a Trailer. Help a Child,” is designed to remind those in the raffle that their money will help children at CHCO. The hospital was established over 45 years ago with the mission of providing the highest quality medical care to children.
Affiliated with the University of California, Irvine, the regional pediatric healthcare network includes a state-of-the-art 238-bed main hospital facility in the City of Orange, a hospital-within-a-hospital in Mission Viejo. CHOC also offers many primary and specialty care clinics, over 100 additional programs and services, a pediatric residency program, and four centers of excellence.
The trailer is an Eclipse 22-foot Milan22CKBG built on an ultra light chassis and features composite building techniques. Said to be a luxury model, the trailer scales in at a featherweight 3,900 pounds for easy towing.
Tickets are being sold at the show in the Pasadena Rose Bowl, and are also available at all California McMahon’s dealerships. They are in Irvine, Coulton and Palm Desert.
