Enter Ducati Desmosedici RR Raffle


Dream Ducati

The Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts in Los Angeles announces today a “Dream Ducati” raffle for a MotoGP-inspired Ducati Desmosedici Desmosedici RR.

The Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts; a parent-initiated, non-profit, public elementary school, is excited to launch their auction for the most exotic road going motorcycle ever produced. The auction is the result of collaboration with Pro Italia Motorcycles in Glendale, California.

Bill Nation of Pro Italia – who donated the exotic motorcycle-, noted that “At $40 a ticket, this is somebody’s chance to own the world’s only street-legal Moto Grand Prix Racing Motorcycle. This raffle is a chance for Pro Italia to help a local, pioneering elementary school.”

The Demosedici RR is the first-ever road-going superbike to offer such a stunning wealth of performance and technology. Derived from the Grand Prix racing Desmosedici GP6, the same bike which competed in the MotoGP World Championship, the Desmosedici RR is the ultimate expression of the most extreme Moto GP racing machine today.

Beginning today, the public can visit or call (818) 249-5707 (extension 4) to purchase individual tickets at $40 each;. Only 2500 tickets will be issued and the money raised will prove invaluable to the ongoing growth of the Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts.

The winning ticket will be announced at Ducati Island on Saturday, July 24, 2010 at the United States Grand Prix, held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The winner need not be present to win.

About The Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts: Founded in 2004 by a group of parents who had a vision for an elementary school where a child’s natural wonder and curiosity would thrive; a place that would honor individual differences, value and develop every child’s affinities and talents, and, provide a rigorous academic curriculum that also supports every child’s social and emotional intelligences.

Today the school serves over 300 families with students in grades K-5. Children express themselves as capable and confident learners, and the school’s rigorous academic programs have resulted in exemplary student achievement. In the fall of 2010 Feliz Charter School for the Arts will open its doors at its new location in Glassell Park.
