“Blessed are those who give without remembering. And blessed are those who take without forgetting.” – Bernard Meltzer
In an e-mail sent to me last night I received the above quote, with this year coming to an end SCC-Charlotte wanted to make sure those that have given monetary donations, time, and support in our events are not forgotten.
So thank you all for making this year a success for SCC-Charlotte to fulfill our mission in helping children with social, educational, medical and financial needs.
Here are some of the great highlights of 2010 that you have helped to make a success:
- Raised more than $300,000 during the May Races with events like Taylors Finish Line Festival, AutoTrader.com 30th Annual Speedway Children’s Charities Gala, and Ride of a Lifetime
- Custom Cobra replica built by Tommy Pike Customs at Food Lion AutoFair in only five days, raffled off with proceeds benefiting Speedway Children’s Charities
- Partnering with B.R.A.K.E.S and Cookies for Kids Cancer to help raise money and awareness on the importance of safe driving and pediatric cancer research
- Speedway Children’s Charities grant recipients received over $725,000 during the Grant distribution in November and were able to help kick off and attend the first annual Carolina Christmas
Thank you again for all who help to make a difference in the children’s lives who are helped by your generosity through Speedway Children’s Charities! Have a safe and happy holiday we look forward to your support next year!
