The Charlotte Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities is busy getting ready for the spring races and events!

The highlight of the spring season will be our 35th annual Gala. The Gala is being held at the Ritz-Carlton Charlotte and will feature entertainment by the Avett Brothers, dinner, a live auction, and a silent auction. The Gala is the Charlotte chapter's biggest fundraising event.

Speedway Children's Charities will once again be out in full force during the "10 biggest days in racing" leading up to the Coca-Cola 600. If you are coming to Charlotte Motor Speedway, look for Speedway Children's Charities around the track, up in the Speedway Club, or shuttling race fans to the front gates.

These events helped the Charlotte chapter of Speedway Children's Charities award over $400,000 in grants to local non-profit agencies impacting the lives of children in 2014. We value the support from our fans, donors, and volunteers. Our goal for 2015 is to award more grants than ever with your continued help and support. Thank you!

Let's go racing!
