HRCC Donates $89,000 to the Progeria Research Foundation

Once again, the generosity and support of the automotive enthusiast community was on display September 21st, 2013, as YEARONE and the Hot Rodders Children’s Charity held the 8th Annual Chip Foose Edition Braselton Bash. Hundreds of cars and spectators shook off the rainy weather to participate in the Bash, which is the final event of a week-long schedule of activities that included the 2013 Drivin’ It Home Tour and the 2013 HRCC Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament. Click Here for a report on all the action at the 2013 Foose Edition Braselton Bash.

After all the activities were completed, the HRCC was proud and elated to present the Progeria Research Foundation a check for $87,200.13. These funds will help support research into treating and ultimately curing Progeria, a rapid-aging disease that afflicts children across the globe. With this latest donation, the HRCC has made donations to the PRF totaling more than $1,000,000.

On behalf of the HRCC, YEARONE, and everyone involved in the efforts to improve the lives of children everywhere, we say Thank You for your Support!
