 LOOKING FOR A SPEEDO? We here at VCRA try to locate and purchase all the used speedos we can to pass on to those that are entering the sport..however, it seems with the surge of Rookie teams each year, the demand has exceeded the supply. We will continue to try to find the used ones, and, in the meantime, our good friend Bill Croker has been successful in his program of finding, and making available, used Timewise speedos. If in need, also try Bill for a speedo at www.whcroker@gv.net .  He is the guy that initiated the “Rookie Mentor” program, so you can believe what he tells you!!

Donation Request Guidelines    Charitable Donation Agreement

VCRA ANNOUNCES 2017 CHARITY DONATIONS..As you all know by now, each year VCRA donates the proceeds of all VCRA rally events, the donations from each Branson Charity Auction, plus the proceeds from the Great Race / Hemmings Motor News supported “Race4Autism” competition! Those, plus the many VCRA support sponsors and individual donations make this possible. These donations are made to selected Autism schools, programs and/or chapters that the VCRA selection committee determines are “in need” and that the funds will make an immediate, positive impact directly on the kids, and improve the school’s ability to dramatically improve and/or enhance their education programs. This year we are proud and happy to announce the donations total is $133,000!!!!!

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR MOST GENEROUS SUPPORT!!



THE VISTA SCHOOL – HERSHEY, PA  $45,000

Our friends Ed and Steven Tourje from Uniondale, PA, long time VCRA/Greatrace racers,  were kind enough to represent VCRA for the presentation of a donation of $45,000 to The Vista School. The donation will be used to purchase a slightly used van and soundproof classroom dividers. This program enables students with autism to get into the community for job training and employment, as well as create quit spaces within classrooms.

ASD HOPE, Inc  -  THE WOODLANDS, TX  $29,009

Cary Mollinedo, ASD Hope founder, visited VCRA headquarters in Grove, OK to receive a donation check in the amount of $29,009 that will fully fund a complete classroom with all electronic and sensory equipment to make it possible for a much needed expansion of the program. They will now be able to expand and accept new students.

BRIDGEWAY ACADEMY – COLUMBUS, OH  $20,100

Founded in 2005, the Bridgeway Academy is a full-day private school that follows the traditional academic-year calendar. Currently it serves 180 students from 9 counties and 28 school districts. This donation will fully fund a mobile technology lab to be utilized in the Secondary School and Therapy Center and to compliment Bridgeway Academy’s transition services and Vocational Skills program. In simple terms, it will instruct kids to cope with every day life, and learn skills necessary to perhaps be employable in the future.    www.bridgewayohio.org















GIANT STEPS OF ST LOUIS  - MAPLEWOOD, MO  $15,300

Giant Steps was selected because of their new Student Vocational Program. They provide an integrated program of therapeutic, educational and one-on-one support to school-aged children with autism. Giant Steps wants students to gain employment and become self-sufficient once they graduate and leave the classrooms. The VCRA donation will fully fund a variety of items to equip the Vocation Lab/Classroom, Sensory Equipment for the Vocation Lab and for a Chromebook (laptop by Google) and a Smartboard.

PATHS TO INDEPENDENCE   - BARTLESVILLE, OK  $10,850

PTI has grown to 51 students, and finally moved to a new facility. While that is great news, the need for equipment to fill the needs for the additional enrollment became a very real issue. VCRA is pleased to be able to fill that void, and present PTI with a check for $10,850 that will fully fund the purchase of 8 new computers, 2 new projectors, 10  i-pads and all the necessary software to make it all work again.  www.pathstoindependence.org















LIONHEART SCHOOL – ALPHARETTA, GA  $9,000

The Lionheart School has a program called the WORKS program. In the past year this program has doubled in size. Why? It is a vocational education program that provides individuals, 18 and older, with customized work experiences while teaching basic employment skills. The curriculum is designed to teach independence and communication; matching educational strengths with work-related activities. This donation will outfit one complete classroom with the technology needed to make the program progress. This type program is high on the priority list for VCRA support.   www.thelionheartschool.com













FACT – VIRGINIA BEACH, VA  $3,000

FACT has been a partner with VCRA for several years. Their mission is to provide social and recreational programs specifically for individuals with autism spectrum disorders. They now serve more than 400 individuals, and one key factor is they focus on our veterans families that have children with autism. Our donation will secure another year of social programs for those in need.   www.camp4autism.org

THE BRANSON AUCTION..was held in beautiful Branson, Missouri on October 19th and 20th at the Branson Hilton Convention Center. A mix of over 250 classic, antique, street rod, pro-mod, resto rod, sports and current model vehicles were offered at this prestigious event. Jim and Kathy Cox, auction owners, have always been able to find a way to present a “something for everyone” type auction in the last 30 plus years they have been doing this. And this one was no exception..with over a 70% sales ratio, the cry of “SOLD, SOLD, SOLD” was heard repeatedly to the delight of consigners and buyers as well! As you all know by now, Jim & Kathy have been very active with VCRA in that they provide a Reception and “Charity Auction” event at each of their auctions to support our fundraising efforts. This time over $12,400 was raised through the auction of donated items by those old car folks that continue to offer their support.  We thank them all for their support…and this auction highlight was a donation of an English Taxi cab that was donated by the late Richard Burdick, which was sold for $7,000. Our sincere thanks to Jim & Kathy, their staff, those that donate items for sale, and especially those that bid on, and buy, the items donated. All proceeds go directly to the charity fund, which ,in turn, is donated to Autism schools, chapters and programs across the country. Because of folks like you, the lives of hundreds of children affected by autism, and their families, will be improved dramatically through your support. Thank you!!

With a heavy heart we have to report that Greatrace Champion, VCRA racer, and my best friend and rally partner for years, Gary Kuck passed away this morning after his battle with cancer. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Susan, sons Scott and Lance, and the entire Kuck family. As we learn of service arrangements we will post as soon as possible.
