In The Heat Of The Summer
It has been a busy summer at the Charlotte Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities!
The month of May brought us All-Star Race weekend and Coca-Cola 600 Weekend. We could not have made it through race weekends without the help of our awesome volunteers. Their time, commitment, and hard work helped us raise over $20,000 for local charities in our area. That is a huge accomplishment and we truly value each and every one of them!
Our 34th Annual Gala presented by Sonic Automotive was also in May. The Gala included a cocktail reception, silent auction, dinner prepared by Chef Lorena Garcia, and live entertainment from The Avett Brothers. The evening was spectacular and once again we must thank our sponsors, donors, and volunteers.
The month of June consisted of us preparing for our first ever NRA Foundation "One for the Kids" Golf Tournament presented by Autotrader.com. Everyone was able to beat the heat and enjoy a great day on the golf course. It was an extremely successful day for us as we were able to raise over $75,000! Again, without our sponsors and volunteers this would not have been possible!
As we go through July and the rest of the summer our grant applications will be coming in! We are excited to start on the process of giving back to the area. We are looking forward to ending our fiscal year in September on a successful note and start off October with a bang!
