The Kentucky Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities (SCC) will host its 4th Annual Fundraising Dinner on Thursday, June 15, 2017, with NASCAR Hall of Famer and Kentucky Native Darrell Waltrip serving as its Guest of Honor.

"It is such a great privilege to have Darrell Waltrip as our Guest of Honor for this year's SCC Fundraising Dinner," says Kentucky Chapter Director Dayna Winslette. "Darrell is a NASCAR Hall of Famer, three-time Cup Series Champion and true ambassador of the sport of auto racing. Closer to our hearts is the fact that he is an Owensboro native and was a design consultant of Kentucky Speedway, home to the Kentucky Chapter of SCC. What better way to spend a night of storytelling than with a legend like Darrell."

Individual seats for this dinner are available only through pre-registration with SCC and are first-come, first-served. Guests may purchase a seat to this dinner for $1,000 each on or before the Early Bird Deadline of Friday, May 19. The price increases to $1,200 thereafter, with a Final Deadline of Friday, June 2. Because this event is hosted by a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, contributions over the Fair Market Value of the dinner are tax-deductible.

In addition, SCC is looking for an exclusive Presenting Sponsor of the annual dinner for a contribution of $5,000. This includes two seats at the dinner, recognition in all event communication, grandstand tickets and garage passes for the NASCAR Cup Series race in July at Kentucky Speedway and more. A complete list of assets can be obtained by contacting SCC directly.

The event provides one-on-one interaction with Darrell Waltrip in a small, intimate setting, upscale dinner and beverages and a premium gift bag for each attendee. Guests will also have the opportunity to make an additional donation to SCC and walk away with an autographed photo board showing a special moment from Darrell's career.

Monetary donations towards this event, without becoming the event's Presenting Sponsor or purchasing a dinner seat, are also being accepted until Friday, July 14.
