The holidays are a time to reflect the past year and spend time with family and friends. I want to share with you some of the SCC-Charlotte's highlights for the 2008 year.

• Awarded over 73 grants to deserving non profits who are often the unsung hero in the life of a child in need
• Speedway Children's Charities Family Lounge opened on the 8th floor at Levine Children's Hospital
• MARA Baseball Field dedicated to SCC Executive Director General Tom Sadler

SCC Grant recipients received grant checks at the Annual Tree Lighting and Grant Distribution at Lowe's Motor Speedway on December 1st. As you can see, this past year has been a year we can be very proud of. Most importantly, we all worked together to help children in our giving areas with social, educational, medical and financial needs.

This holiday season please remember the Speedway Children's Charities mission and the children we serve that are in need and children who may need help in the future. Please continue your support of Speedway Children's Charities.

Thank you for your help in making these children's lives brighter. You're making a difference that will last forever.

Happy Holidays-

Amanda
