Speedway Children's Charities

SCC Logo

Speedway Children's Charities is the charitable arm of Sonoma Raceway. The mission of Speedway Children's Charities is to care for children in educational, financial, social and medical need in order to help them lead productive lives.  

The Sonoma Chapter of SCC has distributed nearly $5.5 million to qualified Sonoma County youth groups since 2001.

Much of the funds distributed by Speedway Children's Charities are raised at special events held throughout the year. Most Speedway Children's Charities events are geared around major event weekends at Sonoma Raceway.


For more information on any of these events or to donate to Speedway Children's Charities, please contact: Cheri Plattner at 707-933-3950 or cplattner@sonomaraceway.com.
