Speedway Children's Charities Receives More Than $14,000 from Jersey Mikes Month of Giving
Part of the company's annual Month of Giving, the one-day donation coupled with a portion of the month's overall proceeds raised more than $14,000 in support of the organization.
"Each year the number of agencies requesting assistance for children in our area grows," said Claudia Byrd, executive director of the Bristol Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. "We produce a number of fundraisers throughout the year in an effort to meet those needs, but it is the support and assistance we receive from the people of this region that truly makes what we do possible.
"We can't say thank you enough to Jersey Mikes and to our community for their generosity."
The Bristol chapter of Speedway Children's Charities raises funds benefitting children's agencies in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. Since their inception in 1996, the organization has distributed more than $8 million earned through numerous events held throughout the year including: Ford Speedway In Lights powered by TVA, Cars at the Colosseum, Sharky 500 and the Ultimate Bristol Experience Online Auction.
