The Quincy-based Lear Racing Team will host a fundraising event from 5 p.m. to midnight Saturday at the North Side Boat Club.

Lear Racing has dedicated the 2013 race season to women in the community affected by breast cancer, including Lear family members. Proceeds from this event will go toward building two pink race cars to promote awareness.

Additionally, Lear Racing has committed 10 percent of its 2013 winnings to the Blessing Breast Center's Financial Assistance Program. This fund aids uninsured and low-income women in accessing essential breast health resources.

Lear Racing Team will have one of the pink car bodies on display during the Saturday event.

The event will feature an auction and raffles. Food will be served at 6 p.m., followed by an auction and the band Who Dunnit. Admission is free, with a dinner donation and cash bar.

Blessing Breast Center will have a spokesperson at the event.

Contact Taylor Lear at 617-0952 or learracing@gmail.com, or Jon Lear at 491-3638, or midwestmechanic@yahoo.com to learn more about donating an auction item for the event or become a 2013 race season sponsor.
