On Wednesday night, car fans crowded into the Soho Skylight Club on Hudson Street to witness the unveiling of the highly anticipated Generation 5 Viper model. Aside from showcasing the stunning new Viper model, Speed and Racing Technology (owned by Chrysler) showed their appreciation and support of our charity by selecting the Benefit Fund to be the recipient of all ticket sales proceeds from the event. When selling tickets to the unveiling party, SRT made clear that this was a charity event and 100% of each ticket purchase would be donated to the Benefit Fund. As suspected, tickets sold out within a couple of days and $50,000.00 was raised for the Benefit Fund! A check in this amount was presented to Heather Smith, one of our Board Members, and Valerie Perry, one of our beneficiaries, at the unveiling party.
Many thanks to SRT, its President and CEO Ralph Gilles, Chrysler, and Bobby Cerchione, Secretary of the Viper Club of America, for their support!
