Racing for a Cure
The inaugural San Jose Grand Prix Champ Car race roared through the streets of San Jose on a sweltering weekend in late July, and Borelli Investment Company was in the heat of the action — helping race beneficiary Canary Fund raise well over a half million dollars to advance the early detection of cancer.
One of Ralph Borelli’s passions is auto racing — Ralph owns a vintage Winston Cup car that won the pole position in the 1992 Daytona 500. Ralph’s #22 Maxwell House car finished 6th in the Historic Stock Car Racing Series (HSCRS) NASCAR event, which was a part of the weekend and contributed to the total raised for Canary Fund. In addition, Borelli provided pre-race rides to lucky clients in the #22 car around the demanding, 1 1/2-mile layout through downtown San Jose.
The week-long event — which included a gala dinner at the Fairmont Hotel, street festival, live music, beach volleyball, driver autograph sessions, and more — was a tremendous success, both for the 150,000 fans who attended and for the Canary Fund, which received a substantial amount of money to help support its worthy cause. See you next year in 2006!
