Mooresville, N.C.- The Martin Truex Jr. Foundation (MTJF) is proud to announce that Toyota has reached a two-year agreement to serve as the exclusive presenting sponsor for the annual Catwalk for a Cause fundraiser. Proceeds from this year's event will benefit the Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, N.C. The event will be held May 15th from 6 to 9 pm at Michael Waltrip Racing in Cornelius, N.C.

"Toyota is honored to partner with such a successful event that will benefit manyfamilies and children in need," said Les Unger, Toyota National Motorsports Manager. "Martin and Sherry Pollex do a tremendous job of giving back to the community with the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation, and this Catwalk for a Cause fundraiser in particular. We are excited to be a part of this event."

Truex drives the No. 56 NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota for Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR) in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He is in his fourth season driving a Camry for MWR.

The night's pinnacle event is a New York style runway show with fashions provided by Lavendar, Avalilly's and Fresh Boutiques, featuring the hottest designer labels for spring.

For many, the highlight of the show is watching the Levine Children's Hospital (LCH) patients walk the Catwalk to raise money for their own cause - "The Martin Truex Jr. Special Needs Fund ." The fund was created at LCH in 2011 to provide patients and families of children being treated at Levine with assistance in paying for medically necessary services, supplies and special programs.

"We are delighted that Toyota is our partner in this event. As we enter our fourth year, bringing in such a high profile partner like Toyota will help us continue to grow the scope and fundraising opportunities for the Foundation and our Special Needs Fund at Levine," said Sherry Pollex, owner of Lavendar Boutique.

The event features a couture raffle with designer apparel and a silent auction featuring diamond jewelry, sports memorabilia, vacation/spa packages and more. Back by popular demand this year is the hand-painted pottery created by the children at Levine's. Plus, for the first time ever, NASCAR fans can participate in a live Twitter raffle during the event by donating to MTJF through the Foundation's Twitter handle -- @MTJFoundation.

Tickets are still available at www.martintruexjrfoundation.org. The $75 "Fashionista" ticketincludes general seating, drink and raffle ticket and a "Swag Bag." All tickets include complimentary valet parking and gourmet food.

The Martin Truex Jr. Foundation, a 501(c)(3) founded in 2007, is " hooked on helping" and dedicated to working with nonprofit charitable organizations with limited name recognition and budgets, who strive to positively impact the lives of children in need. The foundation touches the lives of children stricken by illness, poverty and neglect. The MTJF has raised more than $1 million for various initiatives benefiting children.
