In an effort to help children lead happier, healthier lives, Pocono Raceway will unite to celebrate NASCAR Day on May 20 with the NASCAR Day Car Wash for Kids, a NASCAR Unites national fundraiser engaging motorsports racetracks, charities, sponsors and more to support children’s charities. Pocono Raceway will join more than 20 locations stretching from Concord, N.C. to Fontana, CA by uniting for the NASCAR Day Car Wash for Kids.
Funds raised through the NASCAR Day Car Wash for Kids event will benefit The NASCAR Foundation and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Pocono Medical Center (PMC) in Stroudsburg, PA. Since opening in August 2010, over eighty newborns and their families have directly benefited from the specialized and coordinated care available at Pocono Medical Center’s new NICU. The NASCAR Foundation is committed to children’s causes and, through the NASCAR Unites campaign, has vowed to raise $1 million and generate 1 million volunteer hours in 2011.
“Pocono Raceway is proud to be a part of this united effort for children’s causes,” said Brandon Igdalsky, President of Pocono Raceway. “This event is a great way for fans and local residents to come out, see our venue and participate in a national fundraising effort.”
Pocono Raceway’s Car Wash for Kids event will be open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. For a $10 donation, attendees will receive a car wash and a NASCAR Unites wristband. NASCAR Unites wristbands showcase supporter’s passion for children’s causes and encourage volunteerism in local communities. Attendees have the option to “dry” their vehicle by taking a lap around Pocono’s 2.5 mile race track.
If you can’t make it to the Raceway on May 20, Dynamite Car Wash, with four locations throughout Monroe County, will donate $2 to the NASCAR Day Car Wash for Kids every time a customer enters the promo code “500” at their locations from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm on May 20.
The local group of McDonald’s restaurants, owned by Donna Zlocki / Columbia Associates, will provide a special buy-one-get-one coupon to all attendees of the car wash at Pocono Raceway. This coupon may be redeemed at any of their seven restaurants throughout Monroe County.
