Over the past 6 years, Alan Wilzig has hosted a gala event at the cusp of Summer for the exclusive benefit of a needy community organization local to Wilzig Racing Manor (located 110 miles directly North of NYC). Alan’s dear friend Dan Sperling has spearheaded and run the event. For our June 23, 2019 event, Dan has been joined by Alan and Peter Huber, the GM of Wilzig Racing Manor (WRM). To date over $250,000 has been raised and donated. This year we are relying on private donors to sponsor food, Standby EMT’s, and other event costs – so that 100% of ticket sales and other donations are both given to our two 2019 recipients:
High & Mighty, and Race Cars for a Cause.
High & Mighty Therapeutic Riding & Driving Center 501 (c)(3), located on fifty acres in beautiful Columbia County, New York, offers riding, driving and other equine assisted activities to children, teens and adults with special needs. Our herd also offers opportunities for individuals and groups to explore personal development, all in an integrated community setting.
Race Cars for a Cause
Since the inception of Race Cars for a Cause in 2015, a 501(c)(3) organization, Founder Jeffrey Archambeault has helped serve nearly 500 veterans, active military, veteran caregivers, and their family members with spectacular race-oriented events. Everything from pit crewing, safety education, and professional driving education in amazing cars are possible and 100% free of charge to our country’s veterans!
“I am proud to say that no one in our organization receives any monetary compensation. 100% of all donations go directly to supporting our programs for veterans. Motorsports can be very costly and time consuming, but everyone from the Board of Directors, to the event volunteer staff, donate all of their time and effort to keep our events running smooth and efficient. Our events are always free of charge for our guests.”
