Salinas, CA-based D’Arrigo Bros. Co. of California and the Bounty Hunter Monster Truck of 2Xtreme Racing have teamed up for a design contest, the winner of which will inspire the Bounty Hunter’s new paint job. The contest is part of the two entities’ Racin’ For a Cure partnership, which combines the sport of racing with the healthy lifestyle supported by D’Arrigo’s “Andy Boy” fresh vegetables.
The contest, which runs through July 15, invites children ages 7-17 to submit a custom design for the truck to be considered as inspiration for the Bounty Hunter’s new look, which will be unveiled in October.
All entrants will receive an autographed Hero Card from Jimmy Creten, driver of the Bounty Hunter, and be entered to win one of five copies of the popular Wii video game Monster Jam: Path of Destruction, which features the Bounty Hunter.
One winner in each age group (7-12 and 13-17) will win a Racin’ For A Cure prize pack, and the grand-prize winner will see his or her design elements featured on the overhauled monster truck in October.
D’Arrigo Bros. Co. of California has been Growing for Prevention since 1999 and has donated over $1 million to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. “This design contest inspires creativity and will be fun for the kids, while at the same time encouraging awareness of the fight against breast cancer,” Margaret D’Arrigo-Martin, executive vice president of sales and marketing for D’Arrigo Bros. Co. of California, said in a June 22 press release. “We’re asking that each entrant incorporate the color pink or the pink ribbon into their design so that the new Bounty Hunter will continue to support and spread the word about this amazing cause.”
The Racin’ For A Cure promotion encourages healthy lifestyles and provides “Andy Boy” with an opportunity to connect with consumers and promote nutritious eating options at racing events in new, exciting ways.
