The 3RD Annual Racing Family Fundraiser Success
by Bill Green
It was the busiest day of the year for me. The 3rd Annual Racing Family Fundraiser was in full swing. Thirty plus race cars were on display. A dozen bikes, and another dozen classic cars. The Pro Star Mazda Team of Michael Stephen's was on display with a 78 foot hauler and 3 sleek looking scaled down Indy style cars. had just begun judging for the Race Car/Motorcycle/Classic Car Show, and then came the tap on the shoulder. When I turned around Scarlet was holding her. My newest Granddaughter. Dallas Faye Renee Green. What a beautiful baby girl. She is something. Has Grandpa's round face, her Grandma Cheryl's little nose, her mom's eyes, and her dad's bald head. I think he shaved it for her, so they would match.... LOL
She was a nice break from the pace of the day. A special hug and that sweet fresh smell of a baby. But, I still had to take a pie in the face, auction off $4000 worth of collectibles, do a two hour LIVE radio show, and judge an evening Karaoke Contest. So it now seems ever so fleeting, this surprise encounter.
For the record, this years 3rd Annual Racing Family Fundraiser raised a record $10,061 dollars. We hope the final total for this year's, year long effort, will top $10,500 as a few more dollars roll in.
Thanks to all who helped make this possible. You'll see your names up on the Short Track USA web site soon. But literally, there were hundreds of people involved, and every one of them should feel great about what they helped us accomplish.
Thank You ALL!!!
William C. "Bill" Green
