CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ /Send2Press Newswire/ — The Tsunami that hit southeast Asia last December claimed thousands upon thousands of lives and devastated countless communities in 6 countries. Today, the region continues its struggle to rebuild communities while its residents attempt to rebuild their lives. In an effort to help raise money for Tsunami victims, NASCAR(R) sponsor WINFUEL(tm) and associate sponsor TRIMSPA(R) conceived a unique way to offer a helpful hand to the hopeful hearts of the people in Southeast Asia. The companies took their NASCAR hood backstage and on the red carpet of 5 of Hollywood’s premiere award shows to gather the autographs of celebrities from movies, television, music, and professional sports.
