Contributions that were added to entry fees by participants and donations from others were used to support our grants totaling $7,000 to youth groups & schools to combat underage drinking, impaired driving and teens’ lax use of seat belts. Plus this year we awarded scholarships totaling $4,000 to 6 deserving seniors from the region. That’s $11,000 given away in 2014 thanks to the generosity of many.
