Canidae Pet Foods will host a charity raffle to win a pair of Felt Beach Cruiser bikes, with all proceeds benefitting the American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation to help in the fight against pet cancer.
The raffle will take place during the 2011 Amgen Tour of California, offering the chance to purchase raffle tickets near the finish line at each stage of the race. The race's first stage begins on Sunday, May 15, in South Lake Tahoe, California, USA, and the final stage ends on Sunday, May 22, in Santa Clarita, California, USA. Raffle tickets will be priced at two dollars for one ticket and five dollars for three tickets. Canidae says all proceeds from the company's multi-day charity raffle will benefit the AKC Canine Health Foundation to fund cancer research in pets. The grand prize winner of the raffle will receive a pair of Felt Beach Cruisers donated by Canidae.
