Bracket Masters Racing Team has
established a fund to benefit the community that we serve. The initial
amount of the fund will be 30% of the proceeds from the Father's Day Race,
after expenses. This 30% figure will continue to be the amount that we
contribute to the fund from each of our projects, including the Louisiana
Drag Classic, and other selected events that we sponsor.
In the past, Bracket Masters has
contributed to community events, churches and to individuals in the racing
community, outside of our racing team, that were in need. We have
funded trips for kids to local and interstate events. Using our race
cars, we have put on car shows and supported Career Day events at several
schools and churches in Baton Rouge, Zachary and Central. We have also
contributed time, money and parts to local high school auto tech programs.
During the aftermath of hurricane
Katrina, Bracket Masters Racing Team contributed over $700 to purchase
uniforms, school supplies and I.D. Cards for displaced children moving
into Baton Rouge area schools at Glen Oaks High School, Capital High School
and McKinley High School. We also paid fees for all new ROTC
students for Katrina displaced kids at Glen Oaks High School.
This fund is being established to
continue our work in the community and to allow us to do even more than we
have in the past. We will be actively looking for projects to support.
We will expand our scholarship awards from the current Auto Tech only
format, to include all areas of academic achievement.
