MOORESVILLE, NC WILL HOST TWENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL EVENT
The twenty-fourth annual Stocks for Tots holiday event and fundraiser has been scheduled for Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at NASCAR Technical Institute in Mooresville, NC. The event is hosted by the Stocks for Tots Foundation, which has designated the Iredell County SCAN (“Stop Child Abuse Now”) organization as the recipient of this year’s event proceeds. Attendees of Stocks for Tots will participate in autograph sessions with drivers, crew chiefs, and other members of the racing community while donating cash and toys to aid area families in need of child parenting services. Celebrities representing all forms of motorsports, including NASCAR, NHRA, IndyCar and others, are scheduled to attend Stocks for Tots.
In addition to hosting the event on December 11, the NASCAR Technical Institute will conduct an open house for Stocks for Tots attendees. The open house will feature tours and numerous demonstrations conducted by staff and student volunteers. Don Miller, Chairman of the Stocks for Tots Foundation and recipient of the inaugural NASCAR Home Depot Humanitarian of the Year Award for his role in founding Stocks for Tots, said, “Since the first Stocks for Tots event was held in 1989 it has remained a grass-roots effort of dedicated volunteers who want to give back to the community through raising money and awareness for the child abuse and neglect problem in our area. Members of the motorsports industry have some of the biggest hearts out there and I know that they look forward to raising money for this important cause as much as they enjoy interacting with their fans during the event.”

Premium wristband numbers can be purchased through December 10th at the NC Auto Racing Hall of Fame (“NCARHOF”) in Mooresville, NC by calling 704-663-5331.
