Parks invite guests to round up for Grand Strand kids

Campaign supports after-school program of the Boys & Girls Clubs

JULY 2013 – To support the after-school and summer programs in the Grand Strand, NASCAR SpeedPark, Myrtle Waves Water Park and Pavilion Nostalgia Park, launched a philanthropic campaign through their charitable arm, PARC Foundation, which invites customers to round up their purchases and donate a portion to the Boys & Girls Clubs. The campaign will run through August.

National research shows that one out of four students in the U.S. is on their own between the hours of 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. each day.* The afterschool program offered at Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand serves more than 273 students each year by involving them in programs that help kids develop social skills, provide opportunities to be physically active and achieve academic success in school. “As community members enjoy racing and playing at the SpeedPark, we hope they will keep our mission in mind so that the social and academic learning opportunities we provide after school will continue to be available to Grand Strand students,” said Dione Buonto, Special Events & Marketing Coordinator of the Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand.

“PARC Foundation is proud to continue our support of Boys & Girls Clubs of America,” said Bob Baldwin, Executive Director of PARC Foundation. “We are blessed to be able to leverage our PARC properties to provide fundraising opportunities and community awareness through our parks.”
