GREENVILLE — NAPA Auto Parts of Maine and New Hampshire Advertising Council will sponsor their third annual “Raw Egg Ride” charity event at 10 a.m., Saturday, March 8 to raise funds for Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

2014 marks the 30th year of operation for both NAPA Maine and Camp Sunshine, and to mark the occasion NAPA has set a goal to raise $30,000 in donations, which would be enough to send 10 families to Camp Sunshine for one week. The “Raw Egg Riders” consist of 13 NAPA Auto Parts store owners, employees from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York and Kentucky, plus special guest rider, Camp Sunshine Executive Director Matt Hoidal.

Seventy-four NAPA stores throughout Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont have been encouraged to sponsor the “Raw Egg Rider” of their choice by purchasing eggs, which will be placed in the suits of the riders before they drive their snowmobiles on a specially designed route around the grounds at Leisure Life Resort in Greenville.

One hundred percent of the proceeds raised will go to Camp Sunshine, according to the company.
