New Twist on an Old Favorite Proves Successful
Thursday, March 23, 2006
The Atlanta Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities held its Spring fundraiser on Saint Patrick's Day, Friday, March 17, 2006. With a different twist on our annual March event, fans were able to enjoy a unique "suite hop" where they had the opportunity to visit six participating suites and enjoy a taste of specially prepared themed Hors d'oeuvres while mingling with some of the top NASCAR drivers.
Fans and NASCAR drivers were greeted by our event emcees, Dallas McCade from EAGLE, Y106.7 and Dan Elliott. This new event created excitement among our many friends and supporters, including the NASCAR drivers who attended and spent time with our guests. A heartfelt thanks to Richard Petty, David Green, Regan Smith, Ron Young, David Stremme, Reed Sorenson, Todd Kluever, Ken Schrader and Joe Nemechek, as well as
our event sponsors - Homelife Communities, Legacy Communities, Georgia Pediatric Cardiology, Mitsui Babcock and The Marcus Institute.
Because friends like these have stepped forward to keep the vision alive, we have been able to help many organizations that provide special programs for children in need. It is through our annual fund raising events, sponsorships and corporate donations that we are able to continue to provide the funds needed to the many worthy organizations that seek grants from Speedway Children's Charities.
