2011 ‘jeep jaunt’ raises over $32,000 for the American Lung Association

The Falcon family has done it again! With the help from community Jeepers and generous donations the 6th Annual ‘jeep jaunt’ was a success.  Raising over $32,000 for the American Lung Association, the beautiful Sunday afternoon back road ride to Cypress Bayou Casino included lunch, an auction, door prizes, and great spirits in giving back to the community.

John “JayCee” Falcon, afternoon host on 99.9 KTDY, founded AJRF after his mother died as the result of an asthma attack.  His goal in founding the organization was to create an annual event to benefit the American Lung Association, so JayCee combined his love for Jeeps, the memory of his mother and the desire to give something back to the community to create the annual ‘jeep jaunt’.

The ‘jeep jaunt’ is a 35-mile, police-escorted ride to Cypress Bayou Casino to a lunch prepared for the participants, along with door prizes and an auction to close out the event.

Law enforcement, TV and Newspaper coverage all contributed to the overwhelming success of the KTDY- sponsored event.   JayCee says “It is overwhelming to experience first-hand the generosity of the people of Acadiana and the surrounding communities.” Other Partners in the ‘jeep jaunt’ include:  Sterling Automotive, Cypress Bayou Casino/Shorty’s, KATC TV-3, Celebrity Theatres, Hulco Printers and Light Line of Louisiana.
