KEYS 2019 Smile Experience Tour Creates BIG Smiles!
Our Smile Experience Tour brought BIG smiles to our KEYS kids and their siblings this Fall! We hosted Smile Experiences at the Oswego County Quarter Midget Track, the Syracuse Quarter Midget Track and the South Butler Nostalgia Dragway this year giving kids impacted by cancer and serious illnesses a break from treatment and their health challenges to enjoy music and racing fun with their family! (Otto the Orange made an appearance and the Goodyear Blimp even did a fly over for our KEYS kids… how cool is that!?)
Our KEYS kids had a blast taking lap after lap of smiles on the race track in our USAC quarter midgets. Each child received a cool trophy, t-shirts and lots of goodies! Great food, fun face painting and silliness in our photo booth made for fun off the track too! From start to checkered flag finish, each child was treated to a full driving experience, family fun and big smiles! Big thanks to the Oswego County and Syracuse Quarter Midget Clubs for once again opening your gates...and hearts...to enable us to host our Smile Experience at your tracks this year!
New this year, the wonderful folks at South Butler Nostalgia Dragway hosted a special Smile Experience for our KEYS kids at their dragstrip in Savannah, NY! Friendly Ford of Geneva sponsored the event, providing a VIP hospitality tent trackside, Food (and Ice Cream) Trucks, photos and $500 gift cards for the kids too! (WOW!) The KEYS kids even took a trip up the dragstrip with the awesome folks from Friendly Ford. Thanks so much Jeff McKee from Friendly Ford, Racin’ Randy and the entire crew at South Butler for making this day so special!
All in all, 84 of our KEYS kids and their siblings enjoyed a day away from cancer treatment and worries to enjoy being the superstars they are for the day...and all thanks to YOU our donors, volunteers and supporters!
