Pico donates prize in fundraiser for foster kids

Every $20 is a chance to win a four-channel Master Scope Kit... and it helps American children find loving, permanent homes.

Pico is offering a four-channel Master Scope Kit as a prize in a fundraiser for foster children.

Anyone who donates $20 to the Massachusetts-based FAAT CATS program (which stands for “Foster Adopted Abandoned Teenagers Can Attain Transformation Successfully”) will be entered in a draw that will be broadcast live on the Internet on Nov. 29 – the last business day of this year’s “National Adoption Month.”

Craig Van Batenburg, a well-known automotive trainer and long-time advocate for child foster care, is president of Worcester Shines, Inc., a not-for-profit group that supports U.S. Foster Kids. His automotive training company, ACDC, pays all expenses for the charity, so 100% of fundraising dollars go to supporting foster care programs.

The prize package in this year’s fundraiser includes the four-channel 4423 Picoscope module, along with a wide array of accessories for automotive testing.

“It’s compatible with any vehicle and great for basic and advanced testing, whether you’re a PC-novice or a Master Technician,” says Van Batenburg.

He said the prize will be shipped free of charge, wherever the winner resides.

Last year the group raised over $3,000, with a grand prize offered by Midtronics.

“Now Pico has stepped up to the plate,” says Van Batenburg. “Every $20 is a chance to win… and it helps American children find loving, permanent homes.”

Donations can be made through PayPal, or you can send a cheque made out to Worcester Shines, Inc. at 40 Boyd St., Worcester, MA 01606
