    TRG and the Austin Hatcher Foundation, the official charity of the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patrón, hook up this Saturday at the Baltimore Grand Prix, hoping to set a new benchmark for funds raised for pediatric cancer.
    *
    The AHF auctions which are conducted every ALMS race weekend are hosted by a different team at each event. *This weekend at Baltimore, an energized team owner Kevin Buckler, will emcee the auction from the paddock at his TRG transporter ”¦ but TRG has amassed such a collection of items, that auctioneer Buckler has agreed to begin the auction at 1:15 p.m. Saturday and run through the drivers' autograph session until approximately 2:45 p.m. * In addition to live auction items, many items will be available via silent auction as well.
    *
    *"We have assembled a ton of cool TRG car parts and memorabilia that should get the fans very excited," said Buckler. *"We're hoping that by extending the auction to an hour and a half that we can draw more potential interest and buyers, and that's good for the Austin Hatcher Foundation and the families it serves. If the crowd is anything like last year's inaugural event, we should do very well."

    The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer's mission is to erase the effects of pediatric cancer and optimize each child's quality of life through essential specialized intervention beginning at the time of diagnosis and continuing throughout survivorship. The Foundation provides services to children with cancer, as well as their families, in association with Pediatric Oncology centers and through the Foundation's Psycho-Oncology Center, Hatch's House of Hope. The Foundation provides all services at no cost to families. Services are funded solely by the generous donations of its supporters. *Foundation Programs include Psycho-Oncology, Healthy Lifestyle Education and Diversionary Therapy.

    To date, TRG and Team Baltimore Racing have collected several dozen items to auction, including crashed actual race car parts, driver uniforms, a "VIP Backstage Pass" for race day that includes hot pit lane access during Saturday's race, hot laps at the ALMS's next race at Virginia International Raceway, four VIP passes to Sunday's IndyCar race, select TRG Bobby Labonte NASCAR memorabilia, and select Baltimore Oriole and Baltimore Ravens items.
