On Wednesday, December 5th, the R.A.C.E. Foundation awarded grants to many regional charities, including the Community Foundation of Grundy County!

The annual D’Arcy Buick GMC Route 66 Classic is a “Grudge Match” race between Grundy & Will County dignitaries.  The winner of each race gets to choose a charity to receive $2,000 from the R.A.C.E. Foundation while the losers’ charities each receive $1,500.  Grundy County Board Chair Chris Balkema beat Will County Board Chair Larry Walsh and Chris chose CFGC to receive his “winning” grant.

Thank you to the Chicagoland Speedway, the R.A.C.E. Foundation, and Chris Balkema!
