The Infineon Raceway chapter of Speedway Children's Charities Board of Trustees met last month to review all the grant applications. We raised over $270,000 and were able to fund 38 Sonoma County non-profit organizations.

We are proud to report that our chapter of SCC has distributed more than $4 million since 2001!

We are now in the midst of getting our High-Powered Toy Drive and 7th annual Race to the Holidays Children's Christmas Party into gear. All items collected during the toy drive will be used at the Christmas Party, which we will host at the raceway for more than 250 Sonoma Valley children. Santa will be here with his elves to distribute toys. We will have face painting as well as balloon art and animals. Lunch will be served after all the festivities!

We are also hosting the third annual reception for our grant recipients in mid- December. This is an opportunity for all of our Trustees to meet the representatives from the various organizations that we have funded.

If you would like to get involved with our chapter, please feel free to contact me.

I wish you all a Happy Holiday season.
