The Golden Fund for Autism
Each Child Unique ~ Helping Them Flourish ~ Helping Them Thrive



The Golden Fund for Autism is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization dedicated to raising funds for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families in order to assist them in obtaining various health, wellness and therapeutic treatments not otherwise covered by health insurance or by other financial means. Specifically, our organization provides funding directly to doctors/practitioners who are involved in administering various forms of treatments and therapies to children on the Autism Spectrum.
Our Fund was started by the mother of a 6 year old boy on the Autism Spectrum. After helping her son reach great strides, she has made it her mission to help other families who are struggling financially and who are unable to afford the very costly treatments for their children with Autism.

Read more information about the GFA

Why Participate?
Since the inception of the Fund in 2007, they have been able to help over twelve families with children on the Autism spectrum and have donated over $60,000! We are hopeful that these numbers will continue to grow in the coming years and that we will be able to provide hope for many more families.

All funds raised by Royal Flush Rallies will go to The Golden Fund for Autism to help children with Autism.



The Poker Run is a rally that involves an underlying poker theme. There will be five predetermined destination points during the course of the rally. Each point consists of a short break where your team will receive a poker card for that leg of the rally. The best five card hand at the end of the event wins. Prizes/Gifts will be given away to the top three hands of the day.

So is anyone going from M3Post?

If you're in the Central NJ area, a bunch of us are meeting at the McDonalds parking lot in Edison/Route 1 early. Then we are going to caravan up to the meet point up north.

Great! Fort Lee is pretty out of the way from Edison to the meetpoint so I guess we'll see you up north.

For those guys in Central NJ/Southern NJ, a bunch of us are meeting at the McDonalds parking lot in Edison @ 7:15am. We'll probably leave at around 7:30-7:45am.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=1075+R...26&hnear=&z=16

PM me if you would like to meet up there and I can give you my number. There should be a bunch of people from my old S2000 forum and some random friends.

Last update before the rally. Couple of things for you all to please remember:

1. WAIVERS: Please fill out and print your waivers and bring them with you. Don't forget because i will only have a limited amount with me. This goes for both Driver and Passenger waivers

2. Daylight Savings: The clock roll back 1 hour tonight so set them appropriately. If you don't remember you will be at the start an hour before anyone gets there.

The weather looks great and it seems like we are going to have a good turn out. It isn't to late to get your friends to come. Everyone please drive safe getting to the meeting spot. Looking forward to seeing you all in the morning!

Hey all!

This has been a little overdue, but it has been a little hectic around here with the holidays and such. First off, on behalf of Royal Flush Rallies and the Golden Fund for Autism we would like to THANK EVERYONE for their generous support and donations for this event.

In total we were able to raise $3800 to donate to the Golden Fund for Autism. The fund was ecstatic to hear how successful the rally turned out. We have learned that your generous donations will be going to two families in need this holiday season. We are so happy that we are able to put these donations to good use. It is really something special to be proud of knowing that you all are making a difference in peoples lives. This is what RFR is all about, getting together to enjoy your passion all while support a good cause. It really doesn't get much better than that and we thank you all so very very much for support our cause.




(All sensitive check information has been censored. There are several checks there that total the $3800, the large check being all of the cash donations collected from the event)

Event Shirts: We still have some shirts leftover from the Rally. Both Long-Sleeve ($20) and Short Sleeve ($10). Please PM me to inquire.

We would also like to take the time to thank our sponsors who also contributed to the success of the event. With their help we were able to keep the costs of the rally down for items such as the event shirts, decals, and cards. By covering the expenses of the event we are therefore able to donate much more to the charity organization. Please take the time to show your support for our sponsors by checking them out below.













Event in a few words
Overall the event was a huge success. We registered just over 100 cars that had participated in total. The weather turned out to be very nice (a little cold, but sunny nonetheless). There were a few little mishaps during the first leg of the run, but accidents happen when you have a large volume of cars together. Unfortunately after the incident the NJ State Troopers caught wind of what was going on and made it a mission to make examples of some of the drivers. To those who were stopped we apologies and hope it did not ruin your day. After we got out of NJ it was smooth sailing all the way until the end of the rally where we were presented with some more bad news. It seems that GPNY is more concerned with making a dollar than holding their word and keeping their reputation. We were promised track time weeks in advance shortly after we arrived, but learned on the DAY OF the event (20 min before we got there) that all of the carts had been taken to an off-site local for an event and wouldn't be returning for 2-3 hours after we had gotten there. Not so much as a phone call had been made to us about this situation so we could adjust our plan. Now I realize we did not have the track reserved as we could not guarantee how many people would be racing, but you would think that they would be a little more gratuitous to a charity event that was scheduled weeks ago who was bringing in business of an expected 80+ cars. Very poor business practices on their part and we were very disappointed how we were treated. Again, we apologize to all of you as I know many were excited to race at GPNY, but nobody had the slightest idea that they would pull something like that. In all though we made the best of it and ended the rally on a high note raising close to 4k for the GFA, that to me is a success in my book.

Feedback
We are always looking for feedback on the runs to make them better for everyone in the future. If you have any opinions on what was good / what was bad, what we can change or what we can do better, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us to share your thoughts. You can send your feedback to royalflushrallies@gmail.com

Some things to consider:
  • Roads: Too short? Too Long? Too much Highway? Too much backroad? Just Perfect?
  • Time at stops: Too Short? Too Long?
  • Stop Locations: Convenient and Easy to get in / out? Bad Stops?
  • Direction Sheets: Excellent and Detailed? Other Thoughts?
  • Price for Participation: Too much? Too little? Just Right?
  • Anything else you can think of or would like to share

Upcoming for RFR
  • 501c3 Non-Profit: RFR is in the process of filing as a 501c3 non-profit organization. We hope to have everything set by next rally season. This will enable us to receive larger donations from corporations and other entities that will in turn make the rally better for everyone involved.
  • RFR Website: We hope to re-launch our new website within the next couple of months. This will be the focal point for all news and information on the rallies. We are also hoping to introduce an automated registration page on our site to register participants for the rallys. This will eliminate the need to do everything the morning of (no more standing in line and waiting for all of your stuff. More news on this soon).
  • 2011 Season: We hope to have our first event of the season in late May / early June. Check back for more information

That seems to be it for now. Again, from the bottom of our hearts, Thank You all very much for participating and making our events a success. Without you we would not be able to make this happen. We look forward to seeing you all next year!

Happy Holidays,

RFR Staff
