Are you ready to be the first to thunder along the track at over 92mph on the tallest and fastest coaster of its type on the East Coast? Intimidator™305 opens to the public on Friday April 2, 2010, and you could be the first to ride this mammoth steel Giga-coaster by participating in the Intimidator™305 First Rider Charity Auction.
Kings Dominion has partnered with the Dale Earnhardt Foundation, Make-a-Wish Foundation® of Greater Virginia, Challenge Discovery Projects Inc. (Richmond) and the USO Hampton Roads to hold the first rider auction benefitting our local communities. Starting now until the auction closes at 11:59pm on Thursday March 25, bid on your chance to win a seat on one of the first four (4) trains released on opening day.
Proceeds will go to the Dale Earnhardt Foundation, Make-a-Wish Foundation® of Greater Virginia, Challenge Discovery Projects Inc. (Richmond) and the USO of Hampton Roads.
The mission of the Dale Earnhardt Foundation is to "Continue The Legend™" and legacy of Dale Earnhardt through charitable programs and grants that sustain his life long commitment to children, education and environmental/wildlife preservation.
Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Greater Virginia grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Challenge Discovery Projects Inc. is a local Richmond non-profit that works to improve the quality of life and livelihood of at-risk youth and families in Greater Richmond. "Say It With Heart" is Challenge Discovery Projects' bullying prevention program that places trained professionals in several Richmond elementary and middle schools where they teach non-violent interpersonal skills to students, teachers and parents.
The USO's mission is to enhance the quality of life of the U.S Armed Forces personnel and their families worldwide and to create a cooperative relationship between U.S. Military communities and involved or supporting civilian communities.
All bids must be secured using a valid credit card. The card itself will not be billed until the end of the auction once the winners have been determined.
The bidding will begin at $100.00 per seat (winning bids will receive one seat on one of Intimidator™305's first four trains during the opening day ceremony, two (2) Regular Single Day admission tickets ($113.98 value) for April 2, 2010 and one commemorative prize pack).
Winners will receive a confirmation email from Kings Dominion on Monday, March 29, 2010 upon auction closing if they have won.
