Kart race raises $4,000 for charity
The Lake Oswego branch of Guild Mortgage Company recently sponsored a Can-Am Charity Karting event, which they plan on making an annual occurrence.
The event raised more than $4,000 for Childrens Cancer Association (CCA) to aid ill children, teens and their families.
Presented by M Realty, the event took place at Pats Acres Racing Complex. Each kart racing team raised funds from friends and colleagues to sponsor its entry in the race and support CCA.
Teams were able to rent a pro by contributing donations to have some of the countrys best competitive kart racers on their teams. Teams also raised donations by securing funds per lap raced.
In addition to dozens of patients and their families, members of the Chemo Pal program joined the fun and visited with pro racers.
It was a great experience for the kids and a lot of fun for all of the participants, Brent Lucas, business development manager of Guild Mortgages Lake Oswego branch said. What a great way to be involved in the community. Everyone enjoyed having the kids and their families come out, visit with our team and meet the racers. Were already working on plans to be involved next year.
CCA delivers resources, friendship and the healing power of music to kids and teens facing life-threatening illnesses through MusicRX, FriendshipRX and PlayRX initiatives.
As part of the Guild Giving Program, Guild employees donate their time and money to worthy causes in their communities.Add a comment
