5 NASCAR personalities to help children
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Sprint Cup points leader Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne and Clint Bowyer, as well as NASCAR team owners Rick Hendrick, Michael Waltrip and Rob Kauffman will be raising money for children.
The Speedway Children's Charities Gala is May 22 in Charlotte and the theme is "Night of Champions." Johnson, Kahne and Bowyer each won a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway last year.
"These men are not only winners on the track; they are winners off the track too, giving back to the Charlotte community as well as the communities where they were raised," Marcus Smith, vice chairman of Speedway Children's Charities, said in a statement.
The mission is to better the lives of area children in need, with benefits going to the Charlotte Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. The proceeds will be awarded to local nonprofits that assist children.
Fox Sports personality Krista Voda will host the event.
There will be a silent auction for prizes, including a VIP package for a fan to visit to FOX NFL Sunday and meet the game-day crew.
