Dilly Dally Car Rally Plans Shifting into High Gear

Santa Paula News

Plans for the upcoming Dilly Dally Car Rally are shifting into high gear!  This new and unique event is coming down the road on Saturday, August 28th and promises to put the Fun back in Fundraiser for all who participate in this First Annual competitive tour of Santa Paula businesses and landmarks.

First to start their engines and drive the event towards success is Sam Hishmeh and Hishmeh Enterprises who have signed on as dinner sponsors for the Rock Around the Clock Pizza Party Dinner Dance which will follow the Rally.  Also revving up to cross the Finish Line are ARP/Hozy’s, Santa Paula Chevrolet, Limoneira Company and the Santa Paula Police Officer’s Association.

This event is making history as three local entities team up to further their projects.  Proceeds will benefit Soroptimist’s Women’s Scholarships, Odd Fellow’s renovations of the Clock Tower on Main Street and Chamber of Commerce revenue will fund tourism efforts.

Participants will line up in front of the Historic Train Depot and take off on designated routes to visit sites around Santa Paula.  Cash prizes will go to those who complete the route closest to a predetermined endurance time for each route.  The fun doesn’t end there!  Following the Rally the party moves to the Clock Tower for the Rock Around the Clock Pizza Party Dinner Dance featuring Domino’s pizza, raffle fun and the music of The Cruise Knights.

The cost is $60 per car which includes two tickets to the dinner dance and two drink tickets.  Additional dinner tickets are available for only $10 each!  Businesses on the route pay $75 and are guaranteed a day of customer traffic.  Sponsorship opportunities range from $100 to $1,000 and include a myriad of perks.  You don’t want to get left in the dust, so if you are interested in sponsoring this event, driving in the Rally, or signing up to be a stop on one of the routes, don’t hesitate to contact Donna Stewart at 805-901-0338 or Barbara Kroon at 805-689-2229.
